In 1995 Sherry and Sondra met while working for a large Preferred Provider Organization. As friends and co-workers they became CPCS certified.
In 1999 they went on to perform credentialing functions for over 1,000 providers who were contracted with over 30 managed care organizations at St. Luke’s Shawnee Mission Physician System Organization (SLSMPSO).
They passed all annual audits at 100% based on NCQA and URAC standards. That’s a big deal! In 2003 SLSMPSO transitioned into, Kansas City Independent Physicians Association. Here’s another big deal, Sherry and Sondra ran the entire credentialing department.
Both are past presidents and remain active members of the Greater Kansas City Chapter of the National Association of Medical Staff Services.
In 2009 they started their own company Credentialing & Consulting Alliance! Today with over 40 years of healthcare credentialing experience they are honored to perform credentialing functions for: private practice providers, IPAs, Medical Staff functions for Hospital Systems, Ambulatory Surgery Centers, and Provider enrollment tasks for Managed Care Organizations.
In 2010 Nicole started learning all of the credentialing ins and outs. Nicole is our credentialing specialist. She is the best at CAQH, Medicaid, Payer provider enrollment, Medical Center and Surgery Center enrollment.
Kansas born and raised. She likes to meet people and loves to help others. Nicole believes every office would run better with an animal in it.
