Centralized Credentials Quality Assurance System
CCQAS System Overview
CCQAS is a standard Department of Defense (DoD) system jointly undertaken, operated, and controlled by the Army, Navy, and Air Force medical departments within the overall corporate sponsorship and policies of the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs (OASD [HA]). The Defense Health Services System (DHSS) is responsible for the development, deployment, and maintenance of CCQAS and any subsequent versions. CCQAS is a Web-based worldwide credentialing, privileging, risk management, and adverse actions application that support medical personnel readiness. CCQAS enables the military medical community to electronically manage Provider credentialing and privileging, malpractice and disability claims, and adverse action investigations of physicians, dentists, nurses, pharmacists, and other medical support personnel. CCQAS supports personnel at all levels of DoD with credentialing and privileging activities. The system provides the following features:
  • Maintains and tracks the credentials and privileging history of all military and civilian health care providers, including Active Duty, Reserves, and National Guard
  • Contains comprehensive Provider demographic, specialty, licensing, training, education, privileges, assignment history, and Provider photographs for identification purposes
  • Enables Providers to complete and submit an application for clinical privileges online
  • Automates the online review and approval of a Provider’s application for privileges and renewal of privileges
  • Expedites the transfer of Provider credentialing and privileging information for temporary change of assignment (i.e., Inter-facility Credentials Transfer Brief [ICTB]) or Permanent Change of Station (PCS)
Hardware and Software Requirements for CCQAS Users
CCQAS is a Web-based, Common Access Card/Personal Identity Verification (CAC/PIV) enforced application that is housed on a secure server, maintained by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA). All CCQAS data is stored in this server, which is maintained in accordance with DoD security requirements in order to protect the confidentiality of the data it contains and to permit access only to approved users. Approved users can access CCQAS via the Internet from any workstation configured for connectivity to the Internet. In order for CCQAS to function properly, users must access the application using the Internet Explorer (IE) version 6.0 (or higher) Web browser. The use of other Internet browsers is not recommended. CAC middleware software is required to access or to use CCQAS. Contact your local system administrator for questions related to CAC middleware. Note: The version of IE that is currently on the user’s workstation may be viewed by clicking the IE icon and then selecting About Internet Explorer from the Help menu. If a version upgrade is needed, users should coordinate with their local network administrators to have the new version installed. The upgrade is readily available on the Internet at no charge.
