The Washington-based


reports that more than 90 healthcare organizations, including 25 health plans and 37 hospitals, successfully streamlined provider data collection through the Universal Provider Datasource (UPD) service in 2008.

UPD is an online service created to enable providers to electronically submit, store, update and access critical information, including education, registration numbers and other data essential for provider credentialing, directory maintenance, claims administration, network referrals and quality assurance.

Among the organizations that adopted UPD in 2008 are OhioHealth, Ohio State University Health System, St. John’s Healthcare, Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona.

The Health IT Summits gather 250+ healthcare leaders in cities across the U.S. to present important new insights, collaborate on ideas, and to have a little fun - Find a Summit Near You!
