Reappointments

PHSA medical staff (dentists, midwives and physicians) must renew their membership with PHSA and undergo review by their leader. This is accomplished through the annual reappointment process.
Reappointment 2017

The 2017 reappointment process at PHSA will be utilizing the new Provincial system for Credentialing & Privileging.  Many of you have already used AppCentral for Reappointment through another Health Authority. 

  • The link to access your PHSA Reappointment will be sent via email from Reappointment@phsa.ca in December, with an official launch date of January 2, 2017.
    • If you have created an AppCentral account through another Health Authority, DO NOT create a new account.
    • If you have not yet set-up your AppCentral account, instructions will be sent out separately before you receive the Reappointment link
    • Privileging is still site-specific, so separate applications are still required for each agency or site. 
  • LearningHub Courses - the Safe Medication Order Writing module must have been completed after September 1, 2015 (if you prescribe medications or write orders).
    • If you want a head start, you can complete it at https://learninghub.phsa.ca
    • If you completed it at another Health Authority, you will need to upload your completion certificate with your reappointment.
  • NEW! No document uploads!  We no longer require License, Malpractice Insurance, or CME to be uploaded.

Process

Why do I need to participate in the reappointment process?

Credentialing and privileging are often thought of as processes that apply only to the initial request for medical staff appointment and privileges. They are part of an ongoing process of confirming licensure, insurance and assessing competence.

Regular assessment of medical staff competence is a critical component to promote the continuous provision of high quality care to patients.

Is the reappointment process changing?

Yes, the reappointment process is changing in alignment with the 2017 reappointment cycle. PHSA Medical Affairs, together with each of the BC Health Authorities, will be using AppCentral, an online application process through the Provincial Practitioner Credentialing & Privileging (PPCP) system.
