Regarding the partnership, Steve Gallion, CEO, MedTrainer, the parent company of QuickCred, said, “Provider credentialing is essential to success. Proper credentialing management helps practices avoid the adverse effects of payment delays that quickly compound into serious issues. By joining QuickCred’s streamlined and intuitive compliance and credentialing platform to athenahealth’s revenue cycle management solutions, we are mutually diversifying our messages and bringing greater marketplace benefits to all our customers.”
Ted Gottis, senior vice president, QuickCred, said, “While both companies have very different software solutions, we share a common goal to bring the value-add of a trusted relationship to our mutual customers, helping them streamline and optimize their medical practices. QuickCred’s credentialing services pair perfectly with the need for athenahealth’s clients to deploy credentialing programs that are executed correctly and consistently in order to increase the quality of patient care, ensure proper revenue cycle management and defend against potential litigation.”
