The Mission of the Consortium for Universal Healthcare Credentialing is to streamline the health care industry representative credentialing process in a manner that will protect patient safety and confidentiality, eliminate duplicative efforts and costs, and meet the needs for both suppliers and health care providers.  The Consortium looks to accomplish this goal by solidifying written and data standards for credentialing, promoting adoption of such standards nationwide, and creating an interoperable process to communicate those standards.   


The Consortium for Universal Healthcare Credentialing (C4UHC) has engaged the National Electrical Manufacturers Association/Medical Imaging Technology Alliance (NEMA/MITA) to develop an American National Standard (ANS) to support vendor credentialing programs in healthcare.  The standard would improve operational efficiency by eliminating duplicative efforts, ensure the integrity and confidentiality of credentialing information, and increase compliance.  The process will begin with the creation of a consensus body that is balanced and that includes representatives from materially affected and interested parties (Stakeholders) in an environment that is free from dominance by any party.  If you are interested in being considered as a member for the consensus body, please click here for more information.
