On This Episode:

The healthcare credentialing process isn’t one that CRNAs enjoy and the hassle often keeps people from pursuing work. The pain point has been around for some time and we might finally be moving closer to a solution.

Andi Stamper, DNP, CRNA and her business partner Kiki Mattress, MSNA, CRNA have started HealthShield Credentialing to try to streamline this process and make it easier for anyone pursuing credentialing. The pair met about four years ago and often talked about challenges and frustrations, but kept coming back to this issue of healthcare credentialing. They wanted to come up with something that would ease that process and after many conversations, the new company began.

Both women join the show today to tell us more about the company and how it formed.

Here are some of the things you’ll learn on this show:

  • Why have they been focused on this credentialing challenge? [5:01]
  • The original idea and how this all came together. [7:24]
  • Challenges of building the website and platform. [14:00]
  • Details on how a CRNA can use the website. [15:24]
  • Where they hope to grow and expand. [19:24]

I’m just hoping this will be beneficial to people. Finding the documents over and over can sometimes deter people from wanting to change jobs or go 1099, and we’re hoping this will help them make that jump and have a better lifestyle.

I started listening to this podcast religiously early on in my CRNA journey, a year before applying to CRNA school. The content in this podcast was one of my most helpful resources for getting into my first choice school, Wake Forest! It has also been a huge motivator for getting involved with the AANA now and throughout my career. I highly recommend this podcast to every prospective CRNA I meet.
