Stakeholder Engagement

OHA was committed to involving stakeholders in the implementation process for the OCCP. All OCCP implementation work was done with this involvement through two main groups:

  1. The Common Credentialing Advisory Group (CCAG) was integral as the main advisory group, meeting regularly over the several years. CCAG membership included individual practitioners and representatives from urban and rural credentialing organizations, large and small HCRBs, provider practices, ambulatory surgical centers, and Independent Physician Associations. They advised the Authority on the implementation of common credentialing which included:

    • Credentialing application and submittal requirements,
    • The process by which credential organizations access the system,
    • Standards for the process of verifying credentialing information, and
    • The imposition of fees.

  2. The Credentialing Subject Matter Expert (SME) Workgroup was also regularly consulted. The Workgroup includes representation from some of the same organization types as the CCAG, but had a more detailed focus. This Workgroup assisted OHA in fleshing out programmatic details prior to CCAG discussions. It also participated in rulemaking advisory committee efforts focused on common credentialing.

Other stakeholders, such as professional associations and individual practitioners, were engaged throughout the process on an ad hoc basis for additional input.
