Vistar saw early on that CAQH had the resources to provide a national credentialing tool. In response, Vistar was the first to market with a fully automated interface with CAQH using our Dynamic Import Utility. Our clients can import CAQH data and images automatically and establish Roster and Provider Queries right from the eVIPs™ system. Our clients can achieve improved accuracy and efficiency and eliminate hours of key stroking.

The eVIPs™ system interfaces directly with the NPDB and it is completely automated. Vistar has a bi-directional data interface with NPDB that sends requests to NPDB via the ITP protocol and receives report data sets that load direct to the provider records. Users simply click on the request data line in the sanction screen and view the reports in the eVIPs™ system. Any report can be printed and or viewed in the appropriate NPDB required format.
The eVIPs™ system offers an automated electronic data exchange with the FSMB to help minimize data entry, maximize integrity of data and enhance the speed of which a credentials file is processed.
The eVIPs™ system compares system data against the latest OIG file and identifies potential matches on three levels.
