Credentialing and Qualifications
One of the most important factors in effectively responding to an emergency is knowing what staff you have available to assist as well as the skills they possess. Credentialing delivers this information to your fingertips. It helps you to make sure that only qualified professionals respond to specific situations.
And for those situations where you might find yourself dealing with sensitive or classified information, it provides a structured way to ensure only those people who need access to information resources can access them.
Apprio can help your organization to build a full-scale credentialing solution that includes the capabilities to handle:
- Advanced credentialing
- Just-in-time, spontaneous credentialing
- Volunteer registry
- Hospital coordination and verification
- Event management
- Data sharing
Credentialing and Role Management System
The Credentialing and Role Management System (CRMS) is a web-based application developed by Apprio to document and manage the credentials and privileges of users. CRMS categorizes the users based on classifications such as agency, region, location, user type, etc. Each combination of classifications determines a defined user role, which encompasses access points within CRMS and external systems.
Whether it is medical professionals, incident management teams or volunteers, Apprio can develop a system to meet your needs.

U.S. Coast Guard
Supporting the U.S Coast Guard
Apprio supports the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) with this application to include medical credentialing and privileging, as well as a peer review process for all USCG medical providers. The USCG employs approximately 250 to 300 healthcare providers including physicians, dentists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, physical therapists, optometrists and pharmacists. All providers must be credentialed and licensed providers. All providers must be privileged to provide services to USCG personnel and eligible beneficiaries.
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
National Disaster Medical System
Apprio Supports the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)
Apprio developed NDMS’ Disaster Medical Information Suite (DMIS), an integrated software application that comprises three primary modules: the Electronic Medical Records (EMR), Joint Patient Assessment and Tracking System (JPATS) and the Health Information Repository (HIR). Together, these modules were developed to provide the Health and Human Services (HHS) leadership with situational awareness regarding patient care by medical responders in the field during disasters.
The EMR module tracks and maintains patient information throughout disaster recovery incidents. JPATS also tracks patient movement between treatment facilities which ensures the patient’s location is known at all times throughout a medical disaster incident.
In addition to DMIS, Apprio developed and supported the Responder Management System (RMS) that was used to streamline the deployment of NDMS responders to training events and operational deployments. RMS is a robust application that stores all information about the responder and has integrated tools to determine the suitability of responders to deploy to various types of missions. It has a major focus on force health protection and closely tracks responders’ medical deployment status, PPE and immunizations. Prior to a responder being selected for a specific deployment, the RMS validates the currency of the responder’s training, such as ICS courses and licenses.
RMS streamlined the responder deployment process which was a disconnected paper-based process that took as many as three days to complete and now only takes several minutes. The automation of responder validations increased the accuracy and efficiently of deployment orders and travel support.
