Credentialing and Privileging

Credentialing and privileging allows for pharmacists to practice at the top of their license. There will be an increasing need to verify pharmacists’ ability to provide certain services with provider status, especially with respect to payer networks. Pharmacists practicing in hospitals and clinics where credentialing and privileging occur may have the foundation in place to demonstrate their competence as a provider within a payer network.  

Resources below provide information on how to design and utilize credentialing and privileging processes to foster ongoing competence in specialized areas.
