UDSMR online credentialing involves sending in a signed agreement from the facility and passing a two-part credentialing procedure. UDSMR sends a kit that includes UDS-FIMi software for use in the credentialing process. The facility receives its credentials after 80 percent of the clinicians participating pass the examination with at least an 80 percent score.
Software requirements for the UDS-FIMi kit include using an IBM-compatible PC with a Pentium P4 processor of 1-GHz or higher. The software requires a minimum 256MB RAM for Windows XP, and for all other operating systems a minimum of 128MB RAM. Browser requirements are Internet Explorer 6.0 or newer. Adobe Acrobat Reader 7.0 or newer and a video card that supports 1024 x 768 resolution are also a requirement. Internet connection must be T1 or fractional T1 DSL.
Phase I of the credentialing process requires that all clinicians performing assessments take an exam. 80 percent of the clinicians must pass with a score of 80 percent or more before moving on to phase II. UDSMR conducts a technical review of the facility's data input during phase II.
UDSMR's subscription sales team provides facilities with on online demonstration of the system's use as well as how to generate reports from data in the system. The data is useful for a range of research projects associated with medical rehabilitation functional assessments.
