Georgetown University Hospital (GUH) is now collecting all information required for provider credentialing and other business processes through CAQH’s Universal Credentialing Datasource(UCD) service.

Launched in 2002, UCD streamlines the initial application and re-credentialing processes, and offers health organizations access to provider information for quality assurance and support services, such as directories and claims processing, says CAQH (Washington, D.C.). According to the organization, all data submitted by providers through UCD is maintained by CAQH.

GUH also will use the CAQH service for employment processes and delegated agreements with managed care organizations (MCO).

GUH, a member of MedStar Health and one of the largest healthcare delivery networks in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, is the first hospital in the country to participate in UCD.
