New License Verification System coming to Michigan Medicine

04/15/2019

Michigan Medicine will be adopting a new electronic License Verification System (LVS) that will automate the process of monitoring clinical licenses and certifications which are required by the primary source verification (PSV) matrix. The new LVS will notify clinical staff of the need to renew expiring licenses and required certifications in a timely manner.

Automation through LVS will reduce risk made through a manual process and improve the efficiency needed to ensure that clinical staff remain licensed in their field of practice. Here are a few things you  need to know about the new system:

  • Who it affects:
    If you are licensed or certified to practice as a non-privileged provider in the State of Michigan, you will become part of the new system. This accounts for more than 11,000 employees at Michigan Medicine.

  • It will help employees: The new LVS will automatically send out reminders as the expiration date(s) for clinical staff license(s) and certification(s) approach. This will help avoid compliance issues.

    • Remember, it is not legal to work on an expired license.

    • Additionally, if certifications are required for an individual’s role at Michigan Medicine, the new process will assist them.

    • Clinical staff will periodically be sent email reminders prior to a license expiring.

    • Please note, it can take multiple weeks to get a new hard-copy of your license or certification once it has been renewed.

  • Clinical staff will be automatically added to the LVS: All clinical professionals will be entered into the licensing system upon hire.

Thank you for your efforts in renewing your licenses and helping Michigan Medicine provide exceptional patient care!
