Become well prepared to manage the massive amount of communication to be undertaken.  Start by creating a journal of contacts to stay organized as you keep a record of contacts made to secure documentation for credentialing from a wide variety of sources.

Once you are ready to manage your credentialing communications, the planning process can begin.  To better manage the credentialing process, be aware of the timelines, consider your credentialing options, apply with hospitals, apply with managed care organizations, and remain diligent and detailed.
