This is the link to the CAQH Quick Reference Guide for Unversal Provider Database. The CAQH Universal Provider Datasource (UPD)
is the industry standard for collecting provider
data required by health plans, hospitals and other
managed care organizations for credentialing, claims
processing, quality assurance, emergency response,
member services, and more. UPD enables physicians
and other health professionals in all 50 states and
the District of Columbia to submit their information
free of charge into a secure, centralized database
through an interview-style online process. Complete
the UPD data set once and you may never need to
fill out paper forms ever again.
