Episode 10 - What Does Credentialing Mean To You?

Credentialing means different things to different people. Hear our thoughts on what it means to ARMATURE.
 
We often get this question when speaking with customers, business partners, or anyone else who wants to figure out exactly what credentialing means. And it’s easy to see why so many are confused. Because the word means different things to people in a range of contexts.
 
Some use the word “credentialing” interchangeably with “certification”. Hospital or healthcare credentialing is typically used to describe the process of obtaining, verifying, or assessing the qualifications of a healthcare practitioner.

ARMATURE provides management software to support multiple areas within credentialing. Our focus for the last two decades has been in the delivery of accreditation management software, and certification management software (personnel, institutions, products). We also provide audit management software capabilities for standards such as ISO, ASME, and CWB, although this likely falls more in the bucket of conformity assessment versus credentialing.
 

Episode 9 - Managing Remote Site Visits in the COVID-19 Era

Listen to some tips on how to conduct remote site visits effectively and efficiently.
 
While it seems increasingly likely that COVID-19 is here to stay, at least until a reliable vaccine is developed, approved, produced, and distributed, business and commerce must find ways to press on and overcome the barriers.
 
For accreditors and certification bodies that thought may be daunting, particularly when it comes to conducting site visits or facility audits. However, advances in software for these communities means that many of these types of activities can be conducted remotely, without the need for face-to-face interaction.

If you need any help conducting remote audits or capturing new data from your constituents, or if you would like to brainstorm any other ideas, we encourage you to contact us or schedule a consultation. We are here to help.

Episode 8 - Empowering Your Staff and Stakeholders

The idea of self-service portals has been around for a while – you’ve likely had some experience using tools such as LinkedIn, or Facebook, for example. In these examples, you can access your own area within an application, update your information, set up and invite people to an event, share news and other information. But how does this apply to communities such as accreditation, certification, audit, supplier management, compliance, and quality?
 
Learn how ARMATURE Fabric’s self-service portals can help you work more smartly and more effectively here.

Episode 7 - Get Ready for Your Site Visit

The Flexibility to do Things Better
 
One of the few things we all want more of but are incapable of truly obtaining is time. We can’t add more hours in the day, and we can’t slow down how fast the days seem to go by. The best we can do is make the most efficient use of the time we have by doing things faster and smarter. It is with this context in mind that we developed our industry-leading accreditation management software, ARMATURE Fabric™.
 
Setting You — and Your Stakeholders — Up for Success
 
ARMATURE has been serving accreditation customers for almost twenty years. In that time, we’ve learned that accreditation management software can only be effective if all parties feel empowered to use it. That’s why we focus on designing features that are both powerful and easy to use. When staff and external users share a platform, it helps them to be more organized, save time, and leads to a higher level of success.

Episode 4 - A Proactive Approach to Laboratory Audit Management

Quality leaders in the clinical laboratory space know better than anyone how essential audits are to the health of their organizations (and the stakeholders and constituents they serve). Not only do effective audits help ensure regulatory compliance, but they also provide visibility into the everyday details of your laboratories—and give you a way to troubleshoot issues before they snowball into compliance nightmares.
 
Stated differently, effective audits can drive organizational excellence.
 
What does it mean to run “effective” audits? Many companies still rely on manual audit processes, such as paper forms and spreadsheets, to collect and manage audit data. These manual methods can be time-consuming and error-prone, and they don’t always make it easy for quality professionals to spot trends, issue timely reports, and see the big picture.

Episode 3 - Transforming an Outdated Accreditation and Quality Management System

For an organization like the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), qualities such as precision and accuracy are baked into the culture, and a desire for efficiency is part of their DNA. Businesses and regulators around the world rely on the ASME Mark as it signifies their commitment to public safety and quality. Given the massive scope and significance of ASME’s work, the organization recognized the need to update its outdated accreditation and quality management system to better serve constituents—and partnered with ARMATURE to get the job done.
