Digital Credentialing for Physicians
Own and securely store the credentials you rightfully earned in residency and medical school
Own Your Credentials
Catalog and store your credentials in your own Physician's Vault as a ViTel Essentials Member. Imagine: All of your professional information and credentialing documents in one place that you own — with automatic reminders to renew documents as needed.
Or upgrade from the free Essentials membership to Enhanced and gain access to ViTel's professional credentialing service for employment, provider networks, and in-network insurance carriers.
What Does it Mean to Own Your Credentials?
Own what you earned. Owning your credentials through our Physician's Vault is about more than storing your credentials all in one place — although that isn't so bad, either!
Reduce credentialing time while job hunting or joining an insurance network and be the owner of the credits you earned in your residency, medical school, and any research you've worked on.
With ViTel, you own your credentials and have the ability to send an electronic credentialing package to any third party you choose.
Decentralized Identity and Credential Verification for Physicians
Owning your credentials as a physician in the digital age means having a secure, owned source of truth for all your work history, research, and schooling. This is done through a concept of decentralized identity, which means you own and manage your credentials in one secure place online (like ViTel Health's Physician's Vault) and authorize sharing that information with other parties as needed.
In short, with decentralized identity, you control when, where, and who can review your credentials. This cuts down on the time needed for a new hospital or insurance company to credential you and puts you in control of the work and awards you've rightfully earned.
Learn more about decentralized identity, blockchain, and how they relate to physician autonomy in our webinar with Leah Houston, MD, founder of HPEC and evercred.
