Digital Credentials from FEDIP
From 2022 practitioners registered with FEDIP will be able to use digital badges to display and share their credentials online.
We hope that easily sharing your FEDIP credentials digitally will enable you to celebrate and share your achievements with the community, your peers, colleagues and employers.
This will help enhance your professional status and sense of professional parity with other healthcare professions, and by raising awareness of the health and care informatics profession, you will help us to encourage others to build their expertise and create a culture of continuing professional development.
Together we can build a community where each person can contribute to the knowledge base of what is a rapidly changing profession.
So, how do you claim your digital credentials?
How to Claim Your Badge
We have partnered with Credly to help us issue and manage FEDIP digital badges through the company digital badging platform. The technology Credly uses is based on the Open Badge Standards maintained by IMS Global. This enables you to manage, share and verify your competencies digitally.
All FEDIP Practitioners whom we hold email addresses for will receive an email from Credly notifying you of your new digital credential.
If you have not received an email and think you should have, please do let us know at email@example.com as soon as possible.
The email will come from firstname.lastname@example.org, so be sure to add it to your email contacts list to avoid sending your notification to a spam folder. Click the accept your badge button. If you already have an account on Credly's Acclaim Platform, sign into your account to claim your credential
If this is your first digital credential through Credly's Acclaim Platform, you'll be guided through the necessary steps to create an account.
Enter your first name, last name, your country and postal code, and a password.
After clicking the create my account button, you will be sent a confirmation email. Access the email and follow the instructions to finish creating your account.
Once you've accepted your digital credential, you'll then need to claim it. Decide whether you'd like any credentials that you earn in the future that are issued by an organization to be accepted automatically or manually.
Auto-accepting is the easiest way to manage future digital credentials that you've earned.
Then decide whether you want your badge to be publicly visible or private, visible only to you. Mark the badge public so you can share it with others.
It’s as simple as that!
