Medical professionals over the years have had a difficult time dealing with the credentialing process but with an advanced program lining up, medical professionals are finding a new method for medical management.

ProCial is the new way for medical professionals to secure and store their credentials. The product was released January 9, 2015 and is online based, and available nationwide, but the establishment is here in San Marcos.

The name ProCial is a combination of professional and social, which would allow doctors, nurses, dentists and all people with a medical license to store their credentials to a file storage and allow them to send their documents to any hospital or medical practice management group.

The team at ProCial says there has been a lot of issues with placing licensed medical professionals in the field because the credentialing process is so difficult to keep up with, so they came up with ProCial to help make it easier and have all documents needed ready to go for any medical facility.

The Director of Marketing at ProCial, Art Trevethan, says Procial helps medical professionals in the long run because it is dealing with the issues in the medical industry. Trevethan says since the population is growing faster than the number of medical professions, [there is] not enough [time for] doctors to see everyone and deal with their non-clinical issues simultaneously, which takes up 20% of their time. Trevethan says that ProCial makes the credentialing process more efficient.

“If we can reduce the load on the life of medical professionals by making paper work easier, by making it more convenient and take less time, we can free them up to be able to see more patients, follow their passion in the medical field and generate additional revenue,” said Trevethan.

ProCial has been an idea for years and is just now taking flight. ProCial does plan on involving more abilities to their agenda, but for now they are just focusing on credentialing because it is the most prominent issue.

Texas State students who are planning on being in the medical field have a heads up when they are ready to actually step foot in the real world.

For some the new credentialing system leaves them a bit on the edge of the fence. Vanessa, a Texas State nursing student shares that she feels that ProCial provides an efficient way for handling documents and would be interested in using the system, but is worried of the security of the documents.

“I think I would be interested,” said Vanessa. “I mean the security would be an issue for me, but I’m one of those people that is just scared to put out all of my information and stuff on all these websites.”

Even though the fear of losing documents is a worry she still believes that it helps many health professionals send out their credentials to various jobs and makes it easier on the companies as well.
