Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Gatekeepers to healthcare quality and patient safety: Veritas Credentials
by Veerkamp, Celeste Goff, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 59; 10158999
Abstract (Summary)

The current environment of healthcare requires organizations to look at each department and each employee from an economic vantage and to consider at all viable options for cost containment. An organization’s Medical Staff Office has traditionally taken responsibility for providing the credentials and privileging function for organizations. The amount of work and time as well as seasonal fluctuations in the number of applicants proves difficult for an organization from a staffing and budgetary standpoint. For many organizations, the ability to outsource its credentialing functions to a Credentials Verification Organization may prove a cost efficient option.

Veritas Credentials seeks to remedy this difficulty for healthcare organizations by allowing the credential and privilege function to be outsourced. This business plan will show how Veritas Credentials intends to provide an array of services to ensure that healthcare organizations provide privileges to high quality providers which will ensure patient safety.
