Tools for the Public and Licensees
EDGE Web is collection of Internet-based products that supply the public an Internet interface to a government agency. These products can be placed in an existing website or as a part of a content management solution such as Joomla or Drupal.

Main facets include:

  • Online Applicant/Licensee Portal
  • Authorized Agents Portal
  • Board Services to Institutions
  • Online Payments
  • Disciplinary Blog
  • Public Licensee Lookup

The Online Licensee Portal allows applicants to begin the application process online. It provides baseline verification for entered data to ensure quality of information. The system has an online secure portal for applicants and licensees that provides status to the applicant for initial application and renewals, as well as, the ability to update information (address, supervising, continuing education credits, documents, etc). All online forms are pre-populated with Board-held information, if present. The system accepts correspondence (signed forms, affidavits etc.) by fax, email, uploaded through a portal, and scanned.

 Authorized agents (office staff or other third parties) can manage information on behalf of the physician or healthcare worker, such as renewals, change of address or change of supervision. Authorization control can be managed by a Board to allow as much, or as little, access as needed. Also, a verifying email to the licensee can act as the final approval of changed information or disclosures.

With Web, a variety of services can be offered to institutional customers, such as comprehensive verification or mailing lists. These Board services can have different price levels for different customers.

 All fees involved can be paid for securely online through a variety of payment gateways (Authorize.net, Paypal, etc).

For the general public, online verifications can provide as much, or as little detail, as configured. Disciplinary actions taken by a Board can also be posted to a web log (blog) that supports RSS news feeds. These actions can be searched by name and date range as well.
