CAQH ProView Terms of Service

Effective Date: March 2, 2015

The following CAQH ProView® (formerly Universal Provider Datasource (“UPD”)) Terms of Service (the “ ProView Terms ”) are applicable between the Council for Affordable Quality Healthcare (“CAQH”) and users registering on this site (“You”) to access and use CAQH ProView (the “Service”), and its current and future related sites, including sections of the site relating to the ProView accessible at https://proview.caqh.org (collectively, the “Site”). CAQH reserves the right to alter these ProView Terms at any time; if CAQH amends these ProView Terms, CAQH will post such changes and specify the date they are effective, which means that the amended version of these ProView Terms will control when you utilize the Service after the respective effective date. The current version of these ProView Terms showing the effective date is always available at this location.

Without limiting the general applicability of the CAQH General Terms of Service, these ProView Terms also apply with respect to your use of the Service. If there is a conflict between the CAQH General Terms of Service and these ProView Terms, these ProView Terms will control.

YOU MUST READ AND AGREE TO THESE PROVIEW TERMS AND THE CAQH GENERAL TERMS OF SERVICE, BEFORE USING THE SITE OR SERVICE. BY USING THE SITE OR SERVICE, YOU AGREE TO THESE PROVIEW TERMS.

This condition is imposed by the participating organization and not by CAQH; if you have any questions or concerns in this regard please contact the applicable participating organization.

You acknowledge and agree that these ProView Terms may not be modified by you by any means, including sending an electronic message, and any such attempted modification shall be void.

1.  THE SERVICE

CAQH ProView® was designed to eliminate duplicative data entry and processing activities and bring efficiencies to healthcare. The data in ProView has many potential uses, including, for example, the collection of data for credentialing purposes, collection of data for medical malpractice insurance purposes, enrollment in health information exchanges, and maintenance of provider directories.

CAQH makes available access to, and use of, the Service to users that register in accordance with the instructions contained on the Site. CAQH will only allow User Submitted Data (as defined in the Privacy Policy) to be used as set forth in the CAQH General Terms of Service, these ProView Terms of Service, the Privacy Policy, and any separate authorization, attestation, and release documents you may execute with CAQH.

2.  USER SUBMITTED DATA

By using ProView, you authorize each Service Recipient, including without limitation its affiliate(s) and their respective representatives, employees, and/or designated subcontractors or agent(s), and, to the extent applicable for healthcare organizations, a designated professional credentials verification organization (collectively referred to as “Agents”), to receive and investigate information concerning your User Submitted Data, and/or application for participation. You understand that this may include oral and written statements, records and documents. You agree to allow any such Service Recipient and/or its Agent(s) to inspect and copy all records and documents in ProView relating to such an investigation. The CAQH process requires that each Service Recipient and its representatives, employees, and agent(s) acknowledge that the information obtained relating to the application process will be held confidential to the extent permitted by law unless otherwise agreed by you and such Service Recipient.

CAQH may share your User Submitted Data with health plans, hospitals and other organizations to which you affirmatively give access through the authorization process. The use of your User Submitted Data by such organizations may be the subject of a separate agreement between you and the organization(s). If you elect to make changes to the list of organizations that may receive your User Submitted Data, please know that the change will be made as soon as practically possible. In the case of a deletion, that information may have been disclosed to that organization under your prior authorization; deleting an organization will not delete the information previously received by that organization.

CAQH may also share your User Submitted Data with health information exchanges (HIEs), and other agencies or entities implementing or managing governmental programs (including emergency service responder registries) that have jurisdiction over your professional practice, whether or not included on your list of organizations that may receive your User Submitted Data.

CAQH ProView will ask You to submit and attest to Your User Submitted Data upon registration with the Site, and to maintain and re-attest to that data on a recurring basis.
