LocumTenens.com CVO Recertified by National Committee for Quality Assurance

Alpharetta, Ga., Sept. 5 ,2013-LocumTenens.com, a full-service locum tenens physician staffing agency and leading industry job board, has earned recertification for its credentials verification organization (CVO) from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), a private, non-profit organization dedicated to improving health care quality.

Only a small percentage of locum tenens staffing providers have earned NCQA certification, which the CVO first received in 2003, with prior recertification audits occurring in 2005, 2007, 2009 and 2011. To earn the certification, the company underwent a thorough third-party audit of the company's processes by NCQA surveyors.

Being NCQA certified means that each physician or advanced practice practitioner undergoes a thorough review of his/her credentials and qualifications, including primary source verification or core credentials and a review of peer references. This detailed screening helps to ensure that LocumTenens.com clients have the most up-to-date and accurate information possible when choosing a healthcare provider to work at their facility.

"LocumTenens.com is proud of its commitment to helping healthcare facilities find the high-quality physicians they need to help them better serve patients," said R. Shane Jackson, president and chief operating officer of LocumTenens.com. "Our CVO team works hard to ensure that our processes for screening physicians are thorough, and we're glad the NCQA recognizes our team's commitment to quality."
