Credential Engine’s response to COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic is accelerating multiple changes across the broad learn-and-work ecosystem. Healthcare credential providers, state workforce agencies, quality assurance organizations, and others are now using the Registry to drive urgently needed linked open data connections, including Association of Schools Advancing Health Professions, CareerOneStop, Competency Catalyst (C2), Distance Education Accrediting Commission, edX, HealthForce Minnesota, New York Association of Training and Employment Professionals, and more.  Credential transparency is a foundational step for these organizations and you can support the work today by responding to our call to action.  

  • Credentialing organizations – Use the no-cost tools available to publish your healthcare credentials and competencies to the Credential Registry. Get started.
  • Quality assurance and regulatory organizations – Use the no-cost tools available to publish information about the quality assurance you provide and the credentials you recognize. Get started.
  • Healthcare networks – Help spread this call to action among your constituents and partners

We also encourage you to learn more about this work and many other related initiatives at the National Science Foundation’s public Convergence Accelerator virtual Expo on July 1st and July 2nd. Register today.
