Silversheet Update: Peer References and Privileges Templates

- April 06, 2016 -

ASC’s across the country have experienced a boost in credentialing productivity with Silversheet, but not every center’s credentialing requirements are the same—sometimes a little customization is necessary.

We’ve been working on updates that give our users more control over the customization of Silversheet features and are thrilled to introduce our latest features, support for Peer References and Privileges Templates.

Let’s walk through what’s new and available in Silversheet:

Peer References

Instead of storing peer reference files as Facility Documents, Silversheet now has a section dedicated to Peer References. Users can seamlessly request and log multiple peer references as part of the provider’s digital file.

To satisfy credentialing requirements, the applicant is required to submit at least three professional peer references. If the provider does not meet the peer reference requirement, our software will make a recommendation in the Appointments & Privileges section.

Peer References Recommendation

Logging a peer reference can be done in two ways: by uploading the peer reference directly or by receiving a completed peer reference that was requested via Silversheet. Before sending a reference request, edit and preview the questionnaire by clicking on buttons under Peer Reference Questionnaire located on the right.

We’ve provided some standard indicators, but editing the Questionnaire allows the user to tailor the questionnaire to include any Quality Indicators that are important to the center’s privileging process.

Has a reference been requested or received? You’ll know the status of each Peer Reference request because every action is date-stamped. Once the Peer Reference is completed and submitted, it will be stored and accessible in Silversheet.

By completing the Peer References process in Silversheet, the credential manager can omit the manual steps that come with paperwork.

Privileges Templates

Sometimes the list of privileges granted to a provider can be long and tiresome to enter, especially for multiple providers (imagine entering 100+ privileges individually). Our new Privileges Templates cuts time by letting credential managers create and save customized lists of privileges in the system.

Create Privilege Template

After selecting a Privilege Template based on the provider’s specialty, users can quickly check off the privileges granted to that provider. If a privilege is not on the list, simply add a custom privilege at the bottom of the list without editing the entire template.

Privileges Granted

We give users the option to print hardcopies of the template to use for the privileging process, but the new feature allows credential managers to efficiently log information into Silversheet, where information on all of the center’s providers is stored. The takeaways? You have a centralized hub of information, plus it’s a lot easier to view the privileges on a screen.

This update brings support for the Peer References workflow as well as customizable Privileges Templates that make logging provider information an easier job. Silversheet was created to support its users in credentialing, so it only makes sense that we provide them with more flexibility around the software. We believe that our customers should to be able to customize the software to have it work how they want it to.
