The healthcare risk management firm MMI Companies of Deerfield, Ill., has acquired San Diego-based Physicians Credentialing Services for an undisclosed price.
MMI executives said physician credentialing has become a new operating division of MMI subsidiary MMI Risk Management Resources, which assists healthcare providers in managing risk.
The new division will be based in San Diego and be run by Physician Credentialing Services founder Bernard Minton. It will be known as Healthcare Credentials Management Services.
"This service simplifies, organizes and builds consistency into the first step of the credentialing process," said Anna Hajek, president of MMI Risk Management Resources.
