Austin, Texas-based Intiva Health announced Nov. 12 that it has finalized its blockchain-powered credentialing and career management solution, Ready Doc.

Ready Doc aims to boost the placement and ongoing credentialing of physicians, nurses and other licensed medical professionals. Through the blockchain platform, hospitals and health systems can reduce the time it takes to verify and onboard medical practitioners.

The tool is supported by Hashgraph, a blockchain solution provided by Swirlads. Hasgraph is an immutable decentralized ledger. Intiva Health decided to use the Hashgraph platform because it is a private permissioned ledger, giving it added security and scalability.
