The American Board of Wound Management (ABWM) Deploys Certemy as Their Online Software Platform for Professional Certification Management

ABWM is now using Certemy to process initial certifications and recertifications for over 4,000 healthcare professionals nationwide.

LOS ANGELES, CA—May 7, 2021—Certemy, a leading provider of certification management software for professional certification boards, is pleased to announce that the American Board of Wound Management (ABWM) has partnered with Certemy to process initial certifications and recertifications for over 4,000 healthcare professionals. The ABWM Board expects the partnership to streamline the application and recertification process, making applying for and maintaining ABWM certification easier than ever before.

“We wanted to upgrade an outdated system that no longer met our requirements,” said Christopher Murphy, Executive Director of ABWM. “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.”

Why Did ABWM Choose Certemy?

ABWM wanted to replace its mail-in application process with a modern, independent, web-based system that was easy to navigate for both candidates and staff. ABWM also wanted a platform that would proactively guide candidates through their certification or recertification requirements, with automated reminders to keep everyone on track. Certemy met all these requirements and more. Specifically, Certemy provides the following features and benefits:

  • A modern, mobile-friendly user interface that was simple to use and easy on the eye.

  • A standard system to track every new application, so both parties are always on the same page.

  • ABWM candidates can complete and sign applications electronically, with instant updates to the certification database.

  • ABWM staff can instantly request additional or corrected information via email alerts as they review candidate submissions.

  • ABWM Associates and Diplomates can make annual renewal payments quickly and easily online. They can also upload their CE certificates of completion at any time and in any sequence.

  • Certemy provides dashboards and reports that help ABWM track applications at a glance and lets them proactively identify and resolve issues as they arise.

  • ABWM staff can now work remotely with much greater efficiency if circumstances require.
