Watson Clinic’s Credentialing department recently earned an accreditation from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). Valid through the year 2021, this accreditation resulted from a rigorous review of policies, filing practices, and quality improvement measures, and acknowledges that Watson Clinic’s credentialing and re-credentialing practices adhere to the highest quality standards.
Watson Clinic’s Credentialing department works to verify a physician’s qualifications, education record, various licenses, and their ability to perform the services for which they are hired. “This accreditation assures our community that the credentials of Watson Clinic’s exceptional medical specialists are beyond reproach,” says Sherry Cromwell, manager of Watson Clinic’s Credentialing department. “Our department continues to compare favorably with the very best medical organizations in the nation as we received exemplary ratings across the board in all categories.”
