This is the full guide on how to access the Universal Provider Database. This includes information on how to log in and how to complete the application. 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.
