TAHSN Medical Affairs Committee

CMaRS

The TAHSN Medical Affairs Committee identified the automation and harmonization of physician re-credentialing as a key priority. Leveraging a common approach, TAHSN hospitals have implemented an IT system (CMaRS) that allows for physicians who are appointed at multiple TAHSN hospitals to complete their re-appointment application in an efficient and expedited manner. Through harmonization of the requirements for re-credentialing, over 10,000 privileged physicians at TAHSN hospitals can complete their re-appointment application in less than half the amount of time required in the past. The system provides a platform to expand the process to initial appointment and will allow for alignment with other system stakeholders such as the University and the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario.
