The American Dental Association (ADA) has teamed with Wonderbox Technologies to create a website that will contain a centralized dental credentialing database.
The website is designed to help dentists with the credentialing process while also reducing administration burdens.
Powered by the Wonderbox Technologies Enterprise System, the website will be available as a portal through the ADA’s website. Dentists who are members will be able to use their credentials to log in through a secure portal to access the database. The information provided on the site will also be accessible by request to all payers, which includes insurance companies, federal agencies, hospitals and employers.
The new system will replace a process that required dentists to give an individual response to each payer request for credential information. The process is slow and can take months to get an approval on requests. The new ADA Credentialing Portal offers a faster, easier way to get accurate information and supporting documentation.
Features of the new website include the dentists’ existing information from Aptify being loaded and edited on the new site, the uploading of supporting documentation and automatic email reminders for information that is about to expire.
