LOS ANGELES, CA—January 27, 2021—Certemy, a leading provider of certification management software for professional certification boards, is pleased to announce that ABCGN has deployed Certemy as their online software platform for professional certification. Certemy is now helping ABCGN process initial certifications and recertifications for 4,000 healthcare professionals with higher completion rates, fewer errors, and lower administrative costs. Having fine-tuned their Certemy solution, the board expects to reduce the time required to process recertifications by up to 75% in 2021.
“We wanted to upgrade an outdated system that no longer met our requirements,” said Heather Rich, Executive Director of ABCGN. “Certemy’s modern, cloud-based certification and recertification software system has helped us significantly reduce processing times and provides the flexibility we needed to change program requirements in minutes without IT help or change orders. Certemy has helped us become an innovator and sets us up well for the future.”
ABCGN Problems Solved By Certemy
ABCGN wanted to replace their 12-year-old homegrown solution with a modern, independent, web-based system that was easy to change or extend without change orders or custom programming. ABCGN also wanted a platform that would proactively guide candidates through their certification or recertification requirements to reduce the volume of emails and phone calls from candidates wondering what to do next and with automated reminders to keep everyone on track. ABCGN also wanted a solution that would allow candidates to upload Continuing Education Units (CEUs) as they completed them rather than all at once. ABCGN also wanted a fully automated real-time registry to streamline third-party verification request processing.
Finally, ABCGN wanted a platform that automatically generates digital certificates for successful candidates when the board approves their certification or recertification submission. These electronic certificates are more convenient for busy nurses who might need their certificate in a hurry. They also eliminate the need for ABCGN staff to visit the office to print and mail physical certificates, especially useful when COVID restrictions are in place.
