Tigges & Associates, Inc. is a leader in Medical Credentialing, provider applications, enrollment forms, verification services, and other medical credential services, with its administrative office located in Phoenix, Arizona.
Cathy began her career in 1974 managing several practices, including acting as Clinic Manager for a 40 Physician Multi-specialty Clinic with 200 employees working under her supervision. She has experience in capitated and mixed managed care environments, policy and procedure development, billing procedures, credentialing and contract negotiations. Ms. Tigges has been involved in the development of practices, including single and multiple specialty, urgent care centers and dental facilities. She has served on several educational advisory boards which included Phoenix College, Rio Salado and Good Samaritan Hospital’s physician continuing education board.
Cathy retired from practice administration in 1997 to establish her own company, Tigges & Associates, Inc. Tigges & Associates has assisted several medical practices from practice start-ups to providing billing, credentialing and bookkeeping services.
In 2007, Tigges & Associates made the decision to devote their time to credentialing services only. This allows the company to narrow their focus and become the experts on Physician Credentialing in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area.
COO of Insurance Credentialing
Lori began her career in 1989 and has worked practically every position in a medical practice, from patient intake to billing. After her first few years of working all areas in a medical practice, she began her management career and joined Tigges and Associates in 1999. Lori’s original focus with the company was billing, credentialing and practice management. She maintains some original billing/practice management clients, but plans to transition away from those duties to devote 100 percent of her time to credentialing services exclusively.
COO of Hospital Credentialing
Andrea began her credentialing career in 2005 after making the switch from medical records to medical staff services. She has continued to explore the credentialing process for hospitals, CVO’s and private practices. After several years, Andrea decided that by credentialing independently she is better able to serve the needs of each individual practice and help organize their credentialing files. Andrea has recently completed her bachelor’s degree in Public Health through Northern Arizona University.
We have an amazing vision for a strategic partnership with organizations in the medical industries. It begins with a refreshing approach to efficiently collect and store provider data through a cloud-based platform.
We envision the credentialing initiative as a performance improvement project. In the end, our mission is to ease the administrative burdens associated with credentialing processes. Success is typically measured by fewer clicks, effective workflows and real-time integrations. We can provide benefits such as reduced costs, increased revenue, and improved compliance.
Our credentialing software platform is architected with two-way communication across administrators, users and providers so everyone can securely access, enter and share data with anyone, from anywhere, and at any time.
