How New VP Christina Marks is Meeting the Locum Tenens Industry's Credentialing Challenges

Internal operations are often referred to as the 'engine' of successful healthcare staffing companies. That includes a credentialing department positioned to meet the increasing demand of today's locum tenens agencies.

Christina Marks, recently promoted to Vice-President, Credentialing & Licensure, is ensuring VeloSource meets the ever-growing challenges head-on by leveraging technology and a focus on clarity in communication. Upon her promotion, Jeff Schaal (President & Partner of VeloSource) said the following:

“Christina has been the backbone of our Credentialing and licensure since the beginning of VeloSource. Her experience, expertise, knowledge, leadership, and commitment assist with VeloSource’s goal of a first-rate credentialing experience for our providers and clients. Christina will assist the leadership team in our 2024 growth strategies related to both revenue and technology.”

The addition of Operations leadership to the VeloSource Executive Team reflects an exciting and transformative time for the organization. This, of course, comes on the heels of unveiling the new office last October, a location and facility specifically chosen in St. Louis to support fast growth.

Scaling for the future requires us to work smarter in terms of efficiency to meet customer expectations and the urgency that comes with placing locum tenens providers.

As a result of her team's attention to detail and understanding of the importance of speed to market, VeloSource is gaining the appreciation of physicians in the form of positive feedback and referrals.

Our credentialing department is also exhibiting that successful behavior internally, leading by example with monthly emails to the organization that educates us, improve our ability to work together, and foster our culture.
