(Logo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20050601/CGW057LOGO )
MSOW combines the speed and flexibility of the Internet with Morrisey's
advanced technology to automate physician and allied health professional
credentialing. The revolutionary product is a substantial improvement over
existing credentialing systems.
"By listening to the needs of our customers, we believe we have released a
product that sets a new industry standard for credentialing," says Morrisey
CEO Jerry Zoldan. "MSOW transforms a traditionally time-consuming, paper-based
process into a universally accepted electronic environment that increases
productivity and reduces operational costs."
MSOW reduces errors in credentialing and verifications and reliance on IT
staff for day-to-day support. Because the product is Web-based, it is
accessible to users any time and anywhere and offers the ultimate in
flexibility of access to critical credentialing information. The software can
be configured for single or multiple facilities and can be customized to meet
any organization's needs.
"This is one of the most sophisticated and flexible credentialing products
on the market today," Zoldan says. "MSOW integrates the features that
customers sought and delivers them in a way no other company can."
Morrisey customers partnered with Morrisey on the MSOW development
Advisory Board and have put the new system through its paces in a test
environment. They say the product is just what they've been waiting for.
"It will deliver what I was looking for -- and a lot more," says Bonnie
Ball, manager of medical staff services at El Camino Hospital in Mountain
View, Calif. "The staff here is very excited now that they have seen what it
can do. They can't wait to get started with full implementation."
Another customer also applauded Morrisey's vision.
"So many of our physicians are computer savvy and they want to do
everything they possibly can online. MSOW will allow us to communicate
electronically with them and save documents with scanning," says Lola Hackett,
manager of the Credentials Verification Office at UCLA Healthcare in Los
Here's what to look for in MSOW:
STREAMLINED WORK FLOW
Credentialing staff supervisors can see the distribution of work among
employees in real time, as well as a watch list of outstanding items that need
Morrisey's revolutionary MSOWebCrawler(TM) technology is embedded in MSOW,
eliminating tedious manual tasks such as routine updates of standard
credentialing files. With MSOW, credentialing files are integrated online in a
single database repository. MSOWebCrawler automatically checks for new
physician licensure from state licensing agencies. In addition, the program
scans new physician credentialing information from any accessible Web pages
and copies the information into each practitioner's file.
Security on the Internet is an increasing concern as the public becomes
more aware of vulnerabilities from viruses, worms and other attacks. Morrisey
makes security a top priority, and MSOW includes sophisticated security
measures to protect users and the integrity of their data.
MSOW is integrated with Morrisey's Concurrent Care Manager(TM) (MCCM(TM))
case, quality, risk and infection management system. MCCM provides real-time
access to detailed practitioner activity and performance profiles which are
critical to the reappointment process.
