The recredentialing process incorporates re-verification and the identification of changes in a Practitioner's licensure, sanctions, certification, health status and/or quality and performance information (including, but not limited to, malpractice experience, sanction history, hospital privilege related or other actions) that may reflect, as applicable, on the Practitioner's professional conduct and competence.
This information is reviewed in order to assess whether Practitioners continue to meet CCHP credentialing standards. Recredentialing of Practitioners occurs every three years unless otherwise required by regulatory or accrediting bodies or a shorter term as determined by the Credentialing Committee. Credentialing terms of less than three years are not considered an action or determination that triggers appeals rights. Each Practitioner applying for continued participation in CCHP's Network must submit all required supporting documentation.
Recredentialing of Organizational Providers occurs every three (3) years unless otherwise required by regulatory or accrediting bodies. Each Organizational Provider applying for continued participation in CCHP's Network must submit all required supporting documentation.

- A complete recredentialing application and required supplemental information/attachments without material omissions or misrepresentations.
