Modernising health professional credentialing

Clinician Credentialing System

Empowering healthcare professionals

The current credentialing and scope of practice systems come from a era of fewer doctors and they were all born locally. In today’s world with lots of doctors and other healthcare professionals frequently moving interstate or internationally, as well as working for multiple organisations concurrently, it is struggling to keep up.

  1. Credential - right to work in the field. Usually includes verifying that the person has the right qualification, is registered with the right authority, potentially registered with the government (for patient rebates), and has current insurance
  2. Scope of Practice - list of what they can do, preferably verified by a third party.

Current Systems

The current options for credentialing and scope of practice are limited in functionality and difficult to use. They are also usually expensive. All of which makes them difficult to scale down to smaller size organisations.

The initial training on the system was given to someone who left the organisation a few years ago and so now no one can update the system. So the organisation is using old codes or names because no one knows how to change them. And the vendor charges like a wounded bull for each call.

The system puts them emphasis on the organisation to create and maintain the credential and the scope of practice. And if the doctor or healthcare professional works for multiple organisations concurrently, each of the organisations needs to repeat the process as these systems cannot share data externally to the organisation.


The New Model

OnePassport’s system contains both the easy to use functionality and the connectivity for each individual and each organisation to easily connect and share information. Including verified data.

Individuals can hold all of their career info, including both verified and unverified data (clearly identified) in their OnePassport. Including the information required to show that they are currently ‘credentialed’ in their field.

They can also receive verified information from employers that they carry in their scope of practice. Outlining what they are qualified to do and who graded them for that skill.

Organisations can create their organisational scope of practice in OnePassport|ConnectHR. Detailing what the organisation can and cannot do. When a new doctor or healthcare professional arrives at the organisation, they can import the individual’s own scope of practice and automatically compare it to the organisation’s one. Highlighting that though a doctor might be able to perform certain surgeries at other locations, they are not allows to at that organisation.

At the same time they can import the individual’s credential and through that connection be able to see the status of their registrations with the governing body and the government.


User Interface

OnePassport is working with multiple hospitals to map the various Crafts, and the roles and skills in each Craft. Allowing for a much easier user interface for individuals and organisations when setting up a scope of practice.


Initial Verification

In order for doctors and other healthcare professionals to easily move themselves or their workforce into OnePassport, we have designed a ‘medical credentialing’ system that will verify and create a report that shows:

  • Verified education history
  • Verified employment history
  • Verified immigration status (if required)
  • Professional medical reference checking

Allowing organisations to quickly assess each candidate or new employee quickly and inexpensively.
