NAMSS-ATA Credentialing by Proxy Guidebook


The NAMSS-ATA Credentialing by Proxy (CBP) Guidebook provides an efficient and comprehensive pathway to credentialing practitioners for telehealth services.

In December 2017, NAMSS (National Association Medical Staff Services) and ATA, the premier organization working to accelerate the adoption of telehealth, formed a Joint Task Force to create an industry manual addressing “credentialing by proxy” for telehealth practitioners. The Task Force was made up of industry experts from both organizations, who provided their knowledge and experience to develop this guide. As telehealth continues to expand further into the healthcare industry, it is important that medical staff and other healthcare professionals be familiar with the processes of telehealth credentialing and the opportunities to streamline the credentialing system and increase access to care.
