AUSTIN, Texas and DALLAS, Feb. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Intiva Health and Swirlds, creators of the hashgraph distributed consensus platform, announced today that Intiva Health will utilize Swirlds' hashgraph technology to build the industry's first 'Ready Doc' career platform, which allows for the fastest placement and ongoing credentialing of physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals.
Today, Intiva Health allows licensed medical professionals to securely store and control access to all of their credentialing documents, eliminating paperwork, and automating the critical task of maintaining compliance. The company's platform alerts healthcare professionals about expiring credentials and offers one-click sharing with administrators at any time. In addition, Intiva provides a HIPAA-compliant messaging solution to communicate with patients and providers, streamlined cyber insurance purchasing capabilities, thousands of job opportunities, and continuing medical education (CME) courses, all from a single dashboard. With the new partnership with Swirlds hashgraph, Intiva users will now receive the industry's most secured distributed ledger technology; thereby, positioning Intiva as the only platform to offer immutable and primary source verified credentials.
"Intiva Health has helped us to significantly streamline both our hiring and ongoing credential management processes," said Jody Hardy, Austin Emergency Center. "What used to take 30-days, numerous phone calls and lots of headaches, is now done seamlessly and almost instantaneously, and provides us with a proactive way to manage ongoing credentialing. Intiva has saved us tremendous time and resources, and we are excited to start using the enhanced platform they are developing with Swirlds."
"Intiva Health is turning the healthcare credential model on its head, giving healthcare providers control over their credentials like they've never had before," said Mance Harmon, Swirlds Founder and CEO. "They are an industry-leader in recognizing that individuals want to control their own data, and want to be able to share that data securely and efficiently, with only the parties they desire. We are pleased to be partnering with them to bring the industry's first, most secure distributed credentialing platform to the market."
"Intiva helps healthcare professionals manage large amounts of critical information necessary for the hugely time-consuming task of credentialing," said President, Ret. Major General Jim Comstock, of Intiva Health. "As such, we require world-class security, reliability and scalability in our underlying platform. After reviewing numerous solutions, we have decided that Swirlds' hashgraph is the only distributed ledger technology that provides the level of security and scalability that our users and the healthcare market as a whole demand."
