AbilTo Receives NCQA Certification for Credentials Verification Services

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jul 23, 2014) - AbilTo, Inc., an innovative population health management company providing behavioral change interventions to high-cost populations, today announced that it has received certification from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for seven verification services for provider credentialing. 

The NCQA Credentials Verification Organization (CVO) certification process is a quality-assessment program that reviews organizations that verify providers' credentials. The voluntary review process evaluates an organization's management of such functions as data collection, verification operations, and the process used to continuously improve services.

"The NCQA Certification further validates the high quality of AbilTo's 50-state, Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSW) network," said Michael Laskoff, AbilTo's CEO. "In addition, the certification underscores AbilTo's commitment to providing health plans a seamless way to integrate AbilTo's services. Health plans and plan sponsors recognize the NCQA's exacting standards and have reacted very positively to AbilTo's certification."

The certification process includes rigorous onsite evaluations conducted by a team of health care professionals and certified credential specialists. A national oversight committee of providers analyzes the team's findings and determines certification based on the CVO's compliance with NCQA standards.

The NCQA has certified AbilTo for the following credentials verification services: application processing, education and training, license to practice, malpractice claims history, Medicare and Medicaid sanctions, ongoing monitoring of sanctions, and work history.

"Achieving CVO certification from NCQA demonstrates that AbilTo has the systems, process and personnel in place to thoroughly and accurately verify providers' credentials and help health plan clients meet their accreditation goals," said Margaret E. O'Kane, president of NCQA.
