NAPERVILLE, IL—(January 14, 2016) Naperville, Illinois based 3WON, LLC was recently awarded a contract through a competitive bid process to provide credentialing, health plan enrollment and provider directory services for the Texas Hospital Association’s 470 hospitals and over 369,000 medical professionals statewide.
Credentialing and enrollment processes typically involve multiple layers of redundancy that are costly and inefficient and impose significant demands on physicians and other medical professionals. Similarly, health plans contend with outdated provider data that cause payment disruption when they cannot accurately identify network providers. 3WON streamlines the collection, management and distribution of provider data through a single online form, which is mapped and auto-populated to any necessary hospital or payer form and is continuously updated, ensuring that the most accurate data is always available.
With the THA joint venture, 3WON will centralize provider credentialing and enrollment functions throughout the state and create a unique data repository for hospitals and health plans to use for the circulation of accurate provider data.
“The collaboration will help participating hospitals reduce the administrative burden and costs for physicians and all allied services,” said Ted Shaw, THA president/CEO. “This will give health care providers more time to provide greater care, safety and convenience to both patients and their families.”
“We’re focused on reducing costs, accelerating health plan enrollment cycle times and reducing negligent credentialing risk” said Tom Bartlett, 3WON president/CEO. “New and effective technology will substantially improve performance and productivity for all parties concerned. In addition, consumers will be better able to identify, locate and connect with medical professionals and be assured of their professional credentials and insurance plan participation.”
3WON is pursuing similar opportunities in several other states, as a nationwide trend toward consolidating and automating provider data accelerates.
