The American Dental Association (ADA) announced the national launch of the ADA Credentialing Service?. The service uses software developed by Wonderbox Technologies, a software firm that is part of the SKYGEN USA family of benefit solutions companies.
The national launch enables dental professionals throughout the United States to enter their credential information into the ADA Credentialing Service one time where it can then be accessed on-demand by multiple health payers. The ADA Credentialing Service is designed to replace what the ADA calls “the time-consuming, labor-intensive process” of filling out an application for each payer network the provider wishes to join.
Payers, hospitals, employers, and third-party administrators will use a separate ADA URL to access the ADA Credentialing Service and download the provider information. Using the ADA Credentialing Service eliminates the need to contact and follow up with each provider individually when credentialing dentists. Information is thus delivered in minutes instead of days or weeks. The ADA Credentialing Service and supporting components were built using the Wonderbox Technologies Enterprise System.
Data is held in dedicated servers managed by Wonderbox Technologies, the ADA’s webhost. According to a press release from the ADA, the Association and Wonderbox Technologies are committed to implementing reasonable and appropriate security tools and protocols.
The ADA is currently providing use of the ADA Credentialing Service as a free service to all members and nonmember dentists. For more information or to register, dental providers can go to ada.org/credentialing.
