Oregon’s new law establishing a statewide provider-credentialing system means big changes for medical staff services managers. The law, passed as SB 604, streamlines provider credentialing by establishing a centralized electronic database for credentialing organizations such as hospitals, insurance companies and other facilities.
What the Law Means
With this move, Oregon is the first state to mandate a single statewide credentialing system for medical providers.
