GeoAccess, a data-centric healthcare technology company and the nation's largest independent credentialing solutions provider, has announced plans to begin operating its credentialing business under the GeoAccess name.
GeoAccess has actively invested in this sector over the last year by acquiring three credentialing solutions companies: Sweetwater Health Enterprises, HealthCheck and VeriTrac. The company is now implementing a process to completely integrate these businesses into GeoAccess' headquarters operations in Kansas City.
"We are eager to leverage the considerable resources of GeoAccess' technology and staff to support our credentialing initiatives, and we expect the integration to yield operational efficiencies as well," explains Paul Weaver, chief marketing officer for GeoAccess. "We will be combining current staff from Dallas and Kansas City with new team members to create a larger, stronger credentialing solutions team."
This integration will allow GeoAccess to leverage resources for all credentialing-related initiatives, including a large project currently underway for the Coalition for Affordable Quality Healthcare (CAQH). GeoAccess was recently selected by CAQH, whose members include 25 of the nation's largest health plans, as its exclusive vendor for the development of the industry's first national credentialing database system. "Our continuing investment in the credentialing sector is evidence of our commitment to being the industry's leading supplier of credentialing services and data solutions," said Stu Bauman, GeoAccess co-founder.
