Erin Bass, a partner at Dentons, the largest law firm globally, discusses her role in advising employers across the United States on complying with a myriad of employment laws with C4UHC Executive Director, Sharon Gleason, Ed.D.
In 2022, 90% of hospitals and clinics required credentials for medical industry representatives entering their facilities, according to NMS Health. Fulfilling these requirements costs millions of dollars and labor hours because most of those healthcare centers don’t adhere to one national set of vendor credentialing standards such as the ANSI NEMA SC-1 2020 American National Standard for Supplier Credentialing in Healthcare.
There should be no debate about the benefits of standardizing vendor credentialing for healthcare providers and suppliers. C4UHC supporter AdvaMed recently shared numbers on what vendor credentialing costs the healthcare industry, and they exceed $800 million.
