Credentialers: Are Any of Your Staff Physicians Certified by the American Board of Physician Specialties?
At the American Board of Physician Specialties® (ABPS), we offer a helpful online tool that can be an invaluable resource to credentialers. Our ABPS Online Verification Database is available to healthcare and credentialing organizations that are interested in confirming the credentials of physicians. Through this system, you have access to the physician’s specialty, certificate number, and expiration date, and our database can be used for credentialing and professional purposes making it a highly convenient option. Primary Source-verified information is also typically included for most physicians.
For your convenience, our Online Verification Database can be found here.
After you set up your account, you may login to the database and search the system for a particular physician. Our system allows for partial and complete match searches using:
- Last name
- First name
- Date of birth
Once you have completed the search, you’ll have access to limited information to confirm you have the right physician, with complete records available for purchase.
Having the ability to confirm the credentials of a physician is absolutely essential and credentialing organizations are strongly encouraged to utilize our Online Verification Database to confirm the qualifications of our physician Diplomates.
Alternatively, members of the public who are interested in determining whether a physician is board certified are invited to use our Public Confirmation Database. This is an entirely free service that is available here.
To learn more about how to use the ABPS Online Verification Database or for additional information about how ABPS can work alongside credentialers to confirm the qualifications of our Diplomates, contact us today. The ABPS is the official certifying organization of the American Association of Physician Specialists®.
