KLAS Research names Verge Health #1 for Credentialing

Charleston, SC, February 5, 2019 — Verge Health, the industry’s leading governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) software provider for healthcare, has been recognized in the recent 2019 Best in KLAS: Software and Services report, as the #1 Category Leader for Credentialing.

“Category Leaders are committed to providing the very best technology, service, and guidance to providers and payers. The Category Leader award carries with it the voice of thousands of providers and payers, highlighting outstanding vendors who have raised the bar,” said KLAS president Adam Gale.

Each year, since 1996, KLAS Research has been providing accurate, honest, and impartial insights for the healthcare IT (HIT) industry. This is the first year Credentialing has been included in the Best of KLAS report after 2018’s inaugural “Credentialing 2018 Options Abound” report, in which, of all participating vendors, Verge Health was highly rated by its customers for Primary-Source Verification & Privileging Management.

Verge Health’s Credentialing offering pairs software and services, including credentialing services, privilege management, and an integrated practitioner application. Additional process extensions in Verge’s Practitioner Management Application, including the capability to manage peer review, the payer enrollment process and incorporate practitioner performance data, create a turnkey practitioner management tool.

The insights in the 2019 Best in KLAS report represent customer feedback around six areas: culture, loyalty, operations, product, relationship, and value. Verge Health received “A” scores across all six segments. One director commented, “Two things stand out about Verge Health. One is their customer service. The people that are assigned to us and that work with us day in and day out are just awesome. The other thing is that the product is reliable and easy to use. We can easily run reports or see where providers are in the credentialing process.”

“We are extremely proud that our customers ranked us #1 in Credentialing. The culture of service and commitment to excellence is clear within the report as well as our underlying mission to keep patients safe and improve cost efficiencies. We look forward to continuing to evolve how the healthcare industry manages practitioners to drive safety efforts,” says Verge Health founder and president, Chris Malanuk.
