Research shows almost 50% of physician and provider directories contain incorrect physician information, which can impede timely, affordable, patient-focused care.

New federal and state regulations are addressing this issue by requiring payers to improve directory accuracy.

Update the directory in one place to benefit physicians & patients

To help physicians and providers streamline multiple requests from payers, the AMA and its subsidiary AMA Business Solutions have collaborated with industry leader LexisNexis® Risk Solutions to introduce VerifyHCP, an online, user-friendly platform that enables practices to validate or update directory information through 1 channel for all participating health plans.
