Most organizations must review the credentials of their medical
staff on a periodic basis as a matter of law, Medicare
conditions or participation or plan or healthcare accreditation.
This periodic review is called "recredentialing" or undergoing
"reappointment" to the medical staff. Therefore,
healthcare providers are expected to complete an application for

managed care plans.
Some TPQVO client facilities
organize their recredentialing processes using a standardized
schedule based on specialties or discipline so that all
healthcare professionals of the same specialty or licensure (Allied
Health) undergo recredentialing at the same point every two years.
The schedules provided on this website show the completion date
