et forth in law or protected, and therefore vary.

“Since there are no federal regulations regarding foreign educational systems, the need for more robust medical credentialing of foreign physicians is necessary to reduce risk in today’s heath care industry,” stated Michael Melville, president of IntelliSoft Group. “IMG’s practicing in the U.S. is expected to grow at greater than historical rates to support the millions of new patients that will enter the system under Obama’s universal healthcare plan. An automated medical credentialing process becomes necessary to those healthcare organizations that employ foreign medical graduates, insuring that foreign physicians meet the highest of standards across the board.” The Education Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) has very strict examinations that all foreign medical graduates must pass, before they go on to the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) six areas of general competency standards. These two entities help insure that the medical credentials of all IMG’s will be upheld to the competency standards set by the Joint Commission and NCQA.
