Digital Credentials: Hahnemann University Hospital and Beyond - September 15
In the summer of 2019, the closure of Philadelphia’s Hahnemann University Hospital resulted in the largest displacement of residents and fellows in the history of the United States. This session summarizes how the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) became involved in the Hahnemann closing on the heels of releasing the research paper “Healthcare and Digital Credentials: Technical, Legal, and Regulatory Considerations.”
FSMB is working to promote the acceptance of digital credentials in the licensing and credentialing communities. In this session, FSMB describes the journey to implement portable physician credentials outlined in the research paper, the need for standards, and the current state of digital credentials.
“MedBiquitous Community Connection” is a series of free one-hour webinars featuring health professions educators and technology innovators from around the globe. “MedBiquitous Community Connection” provides a forum for community experts to share how digital technologies are promoting improvement and better outcomes across the continuum of health professions education. A portion of each webinar will reserve time for a brief Q&A session, allowing attendees the opportunity to dialogue with guest speakers.
