CertAlert+ really simplifies managing your certifications, licenses and in-service credits," says Karl "Fritz" Disque, D.O., a board-certified, practicing anesthesiologist and cofounder of National Health Care Provider Solu- tions (NHCPS) in Henderson, Nev., which produces the app. Richard Andersen, D.O., a family medicine physician at Captain James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center in North Chicago, was looking for an easier way to manage his required licenses and certifications. "I was using traditional paper records with some assistance from my administra- tive staff," he says. But this approach was fraught with inconveniences such as slow and tedious license renewal and sharing. Andersen uses CertAlert+ on his iPhone, which he always carries with him. "CertAlert+ stores my license, certifcation, and in-service informa- tion and gives me reminders to renew them," he says. Now, he can quickly, easily and personally maintain these records for real-time viewing and sharing. Andersen is happy with the intuitive way that CertAlert+ captures license and certification records. "Rather than typing in large amounts of data by hand, I can take photos of the front and back of cards and certifcations. It makes it easy to track the information I need," he says. CertAlert+ replaces all the busy work of tracking paper cards and manually reapplying for certifica- tions once they have expired, all while keeping the certifications at hand and current. Says Andersen: "Before I have to renew my licenses or certifications, I enter the information into the app and set reminders to notify me when I need to renew each of them." l David Geer is a frequent contributor to Prac- ticeLink Magazine's Tech Notes department.
