CGFNS Partners to Pilot a Blockchain Implementation

(PHILADELPHIA) January 29, 2019 – CGFNS International, Inc. partnered with Trinisys to continue implementing its digital transformation by piloting blockchain technology for the CGFNS Certification Program®.

This technology enables foreign educated nurses to have greater self-service capability over the acquisition and storage of their documents in a secure, privacy-protected system. CGFNS will use these secure, privacy-protected documents in the analyses of their credentials. In addition, the technology will provide applicants the opportunity to select and forward their documents to third parties.

“We are pleased to partner with Trinisys in piloting blockchain technology for our Certification Program. This initiative will further our digital capability that began in early 2018,” said CGFNS President and CEO Franklin A. Shaffer, EdD, RN, FAAN, FFNMRCSI. “CGFNS aims to provide successful applicants with location-independent, secure access via blockchain to our certifications signifying their eligibility to practice on an occupational visa in the United States.”

“Trinisys greatly values this opportunity to be working with such a forward-thinking organization as CGFNS. Embracing and effectively leveraging blockchain will allow for exponential capability in overcoming current barriers faced in servicing international health professionals as well as dramatically streamlining the certification process,” said Trinisys Principal Jay Cannon.
