OhioHealth Group Credentialing Services (OHGCS) program became operational on April 5, 1999. The goal was to streamline credentialing processes for Riverside Methodist Hospital and Grant Medical Center, using Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (TJC) standards while maintaining established credentialing services for OhioHealth Group (OHG) and The Medical Group of Ohio (MGO) using National Association for Quality Assurance (NCQA) standards. Since inception, OHG Credentialing Services has improved efficiencies for these facilities and has eliminated redundancy in paperwork for practitioners and their office staff. As a result, three additional OhioHealth system hospitals, Doctors Hospital, Dublin Methodist Hospital, and Grady Memorial Hospital have also contracted with OHGCS.
 
OHGCS goal is to positively impact the effectiveness and efficiency with which a pracitioner is added to the medical staffs of the Central Ohio OhioHealth hospitals (Riverside Methodist Hospital, Grant Medical Center, Doctors Hospital, Dublin Methodist Hospital and Grady Memorial Hospital). This process affects how soon a practitioner has the ability to see members of any health plan that contract with these hospitals, in many instances a practitioners cannot be added to health insurance plans until privileges are obtained at a designated hospital. The efficiency of the credentialing services provided by the OHGCS, assures that a practitioner can be timely appointed to the contracted hospitals, thus facilitating the approval process for affiliated health insurance plans.
 
OHGCS has proven itself a valuable asset to the OhioHealth family, by streamlining credentialing and collaborating with all contracted entities to achieve a seamless credentialing process.
