Credentialing at our hospital

Centralized credentialing

Providing quality, patient-centered care is our mission at HCA Florida Mercy Hospital. That’s why it’s important that we partner with physicians and other medical professionals (Providers) who have the necessary qualifications and credentials to provide quality, safe and compassionate medical care to our community.

Credentialing and privileging

Our rigorous credentialing process follows Federal and State regulatory requirements, as well as accreditation standards for verifying the education, training, licensure and current competence in order to ensure that privileges are only granted to qualified Providers.

Remote access

Our hCare Access (VDI) solution securely allows physicians and staff access to HCA’s Information Technology systems without the use of security tokens (SecurID) or without having to be physically inside an HCA facility. This allows the Physicians to have a fast and easy solution to gain remote access to key systems.

CME program

The purpose of HCA Florida Mercy Hospital's Continuing Medical Education (CME) program is to provide educational activities to fulfill the educational needs (knowledge, competence and/or performance) of Medical Staff in an effort to improve the competence and performance of the physicians, resulting in improved patient care.

Specific goals of the program include:

  • Identify professional practice gap areas
  • Identify and determine the cause of the professional practice gaps
  • Provide CME activities in appropriate formats (mostly live activities) to change physicians' competence and/or performance for enhanced patient care
  • Offer CME courses mandated for state license renewal and Board recertification
Target audience
While the primary target audience of the CME activities is physicians and residents, activities may also be appropriate for (and attended by) Physician Assistants, Nurses and ARNPs.

Expected results
The expected results of Mercy Hospital CME activities are:

  • Improved physician competence, performance-in-practice and enhanced patient outcomes. While most activities are directed towards competence and performance, when possible we will also assess improved patient outcomes.
  • Continue to provide access to courses required for state license renewal, Board recertification and physicians' needs to address professional practice gaps.
