Intiva Health Using Hashgraph DLT To Speed Up Healthcare Credentialing

Announcements, News | March 22, 2019 By:

Healthcare career management platform Intiva Health is launching a distributed ledger technology-based credential management and verification service.

Headquartered in Austin, Texas, Intiva Health offers a free career-management platform for healthcare professionals. Its platform allows doctors and nurses to manage credentials, take continuing education courses, find jobs, and send HIPAA-compliant messages.

The company’s credential management and verification service, called Ready Doc, claims to be the first service of its kind to utilize hashgraph distributed ledger technology (DLT), a patented algorithm that promises the benefits of the blockchain – decentralization, distribution, and security through the use of hashing – without the drawback of low transaction speed.

“We’re honored to be the first-ever healthcare platform running on hashgraph,” said Intiva Health’s CTO Sahir Ali, Ph.D. “This can truly reinvent healthcare management.”

According to Intiva Health, the new service leverages hashgraph to provide a more efficient, less expensive way to verify and share medical credentials – speeding up the process from months to seconds. Ready Doc does this by enabling innovative document security components and immutable “moment-in-time” snapshots that are faster, safer and more fair than current blockchain capabilities.

Ready Doc’s first pilot at Austin Emergency Center (AEC) has reportedly been a success, and the company has now started to reach out to other hospitals and medical groups to further test the service.

“It’s making verifying the credentials and reputations of my doctors and nurses much faster and easier,” said Jody Hardy, director of physician and patient relations at AEC. “Credentialing is just part of what I do, so Ready Doc is really helping free up time for other urgent tasks.”
