How to Claim Your FEDIP Digital Credentials

From 2022 practitioners registered with FEDIP will be able to use digital badges to display and share their credentials online. If you have been awarded Associate Practitioner, Practitioner, Senior Practitioner, Advanced Practitioner or Leading Practitioner you can claim your new FEDIP badge.

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.

The badge contains metadata that will be display when someone clicks on your credential. This allows them to easily verify your credentials and learn more about the standards that you have met to achieve your practitioner status.

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 Credentials

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 registered FEDIP Practitioners from AphA, BCS, CILIP, IHRIM and Socitm, 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 as soon as possible.

The email will come from, 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. Review the terms of use, then check the box indicating your acceptance of them. 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.

Claim your digital credential.

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!

How to Share the Badge

After accepting your credential, you will be taken to the share page.

It's standard for each social media site to require you to authorize Credly's Acclaim Platform to post on your behalf. Follow the instructions to do so, along with any prompts that pop-up to complete the sharing activity. You can also copy the imbed code for your digital credential, download your OBI compliant open badge, or copy the badge URL to paste on a resume or a link through an email signature.

We hope that you find the FEDIP digital credentials useful. We look forward to celebrating your achievements with you and thank you for helping us raise the profile of the health and care informatics profession.
