About Us


Credentialing has a well-earned reputation as a labor-intensive, tedious process, that until recently, was primarily performed in the hospital setting. In order to comply with the current requirements of regulatory governmental agencies and insurance providers, credentialing has taken on a new dimension. The process is more complex, requiring sophisticated new software and computer programs. Credentialing is no longer a part-time assignment; it requires the full-time attention of trained credentialing specialists.

Many hospitals and medical groups have found that to provide and maintain these specialized services in-house requires an inordinate investment of staff, time and capital resources. Instead, they are turning to specialists like Customized Credentialing Services to provide the necessary expertise and information systems.


It is the mission of this organization to provide a total package of credentials verification services to hospitals, physicians and other healthcare entities in the nation.


It is our vision to be recognized as the preferred Credentials Verification Organization (CVO) in the seven Western states. We will earn this reputation by continuing to focus on our core business. We will combine our broad experience with state of the art technology, to create a superior level of service.
