• Physical accessibility, such as handicapped accessible;
• Physical appearance;
• Adequacy of waiting and examining room space;
• Availability of appointments; and
• Adequacy of treatment record keeping (e.g., secure/confidential ling system).
The credentialing program applies to the following provider types:
• Doctor of Medicine (MD)
• Doctor of Osteopathy (DO)
• Doctor of Podiatry (DPM)
• Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine (DC)
• Doctor of Optometry (OD)
• Physician Assistant (PA)
• Nurse Practitioner (NP)
• Physical Therapist (PT)
PSW re-credentials network providers at least every 36 months. The process finds and evaluates changes in the providers which confirms the provider’s ability to deliver healthcare services:
