Oklahoma Medical Board Streamlines Physician Licensure Process

The Oklahoma Board of Medical Licensure and Supervision (OSBMLS) recently launched the Uniform Application for Physician State Licensure (UA) to streamline the licensure process for Oklahoma physicians.

The Uniform Application makes it easier for physicians to become licensed in multiple states by providing a “core” application used by the 23 state medical boards using the UA. It eliminates the need for physicians to re-enter data multiple times and makes it easier for physicians to apply for licensure in multiple states. Among the benefits the UA offers Oklahoma physicians:

  • Auto-populates key data, saving physicians time by eliminating the need to re-enter information multiple times.
  • Information provided by physicians is stored in a permanent data repository, which is available to physicians when they apply for licensure in another of the growing number of states using the UA.
  • Auto-populates credentialing data for users of the Federation Credentials Verification Service (FCVS).

“This is a huge move forward in convenience for physicians,” said Lyle Kelsey, executive director the Oklahoma Board of Medical Licensure and Supervision. “Many physicians practice in multiple states, and the old process could be very tedious and cumbersome. Now it’s a much simpler, faster process.”

In addition, Oklahoma is the first state to implement a web-service call between the Federation Credentials Verification Service (FCVS) application form and the existing OSBMLS licensing database. The web-service allows the two systems to share information to provide a more seamless user experience.

In layman’s terms, the OSBMLS system sends FSMB a Unique ID that the user provides and FSMB sends back all the info the user had entered on FSMB’s application form. Approximately 70 percent of applicant data for the UA can be pre-populated when the applicant uses FCVS. As UA usage continues to grow, the number of the more than 170,000 FCVS users accessing this added convenience is expected to increase as well.

OSBMLS developed the application in collaboration with the Federation of State Medical Boards and OK.gov, Oklahoma’s official website managed by the eGovernment firm, NIC Inc. (Nasdaq: EGOV). For more information about the UA, please visit http:www.fsmb.org/ua.html or contact Ingo Hagemann, Director of UA, at [email protected].

Cloud data governance was previously an avoided function when cloud deployments were relatively small. With the rapid adoption in public cloud – both rogue and sanctioned, it’s not uncommon to find regulated data dumped into public cloud and unprotected. This is why enterprises and cloud providers alike need to embrace a cloud data governance function and map policies, processes and technology controls accordingly. In her session at 15th Cloud Expo, Evelyn de Souza, Data Privacy and Compliance Strategy Leader at Cisco Systems, will focus on how to set up a cloud data governance program and s...

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
