Leadership at Allina Health, a large Minneapolis-based healthcare system operating 11 hospitals and more than 90 clinics across Minnesota and western Wisconsin, saw the need to launch its own Credentials Verifications Organization (CVO) to improve efficiency in reviewing and approving prospective physician applications.
As the team began to form, it was clear that they needed temporary resources to assist with credentialing so the current team could focus on training new employees and searching for additional, qualified staff to join the organization full-time.
The new CVO team needed dependable resources that required very little training and could jump in and assist immediately.
The director was familiar with The Hardenbergh Group and knew they placed experienced, qualified medical services professionals. She quickly found them to be responsive, accommodating, and able to provide the kind of staffing she needed. It was clear that The Hardenbergh Group was the right choice for her team.
As a specialized staffing agency, The Hardenbergh Group could provide resources with the training and experience needed to begin work immediately, bypassing months of extensive training that would drain resources and delay revenue. Allina Health’s human resources team understood the unique skill set required for credentialing and the return on investment of working with a specialized staffing agency, the partnership was quickly approved. Within a few days, The Hardenbergh Group had placed an individual who fit perfectly within the organization and was a dependable resource with the client during the transition.
To assist the client with the formation of its Credentials Verification Organization, The Hardenbergh Group placed a temporary staff member who was the ‘perfect fit’ for Allina Health’s needs, both in terms of experience and personality. This placement equipped the organization with the staff necessary to get back on track almost immediately.
By working with The Hardenbergh Group, Allina Health avoided lost revenue from credentialing delays and eliminating the cost of training inexperienced personnel.
Since forming this successful partnership with Hardenbergh, Allina Health has turned to Hardenbergh on multiple occasions and always found the collaboration a positive experience.
