Social Networking

Variation of Employment Module

Variations to employment typically out-number recruitment transactions 5 to 1. These changes require some degree of authorization, by using eRecruit’s approvals processes these are managed ‘on-line’ and are fully auditable. This system can interface to existing payroll systems to provide even greater efficiency, improved data accuracy and reduced manual effort.

Termination Module

Allows an employee to complete an online resignation form and sends it to the appropriate department (i.e. Payroll). Generate a confirmation letter to the employee along with notifications to the IT/Security/HR departments outlining which equipment may need to be returned. An exit interview forms part of the process.

Talent Management

Resume parsing allows you to search through your talent pool to find applicants with matching skills and qualifications. Build and maintain eligibility and do not hire lists.

A large percentage of checks are returned instantly and all 8 police jurisdictions in Australia are interrogated. (Federal, NSW, VIC, QLD, SA, NT, WA, TAS).

Anti-Money Laundering & Counter-Terrorism Financing

Fit2work’s solution assists in authenticating the identity of individuals and reduces the likelihood of identity theft and fraud. Fit2work utilises comprehensive identity databases to electronically confirm identity and ensure AML & CTF compliance.

Mercury eCredential
Clinical Credentialing Made Easy

Monitor real-time status, customised Scope of Practice, and configurable reminders

Clinical Governance

Mercury eCredential provides a flexible yet fully auditable, workflow driven credentialing process that assists in maintaining strict governance over all Health Practitioners. The product has been designed to satisfy all State Government information requirements.

Patient Safety

All information submitted by the clinician can be reviewed and verified allowing credentialing committee members to allocate scope with all relevant information available. Data used to influence a decision regarding a clinician’s status within the Health Service is tracked and visible.
Email and SMS Alerts are sent on expired registrations, suspensions, terminations or contracts. Clinical managers can quickly establish identity of a clinician with a photo and check scope of clinical practice relevant to attending clinicians.

Clinician Centric

Clinicians can create and maintain their own "clinical profile" including qualifications, employment history and training via a secure online interface. The clinician only needs to complete their profile once and can keep it up to date easily so there is no last minute rush for information.
The system maintains privacy at all times as clinicians can choose to share their profile with a Hospital or Health Service.


Use eCredential to maintain a fully searchable and up to date database that includes contact details, addresses, history of communication, invitations to events and much more. With eCredential’s on the fly document generator, create any type of document within seconds such as contracts of employment, welcome letters, statement of service, statutory declarations and so on.

Scope of Practice

Build and manage a flexible and comprehensive scope of clinical practice library and assign procedures to individual clinicians. Once assigned, clinician status reports provide a complete overview to the clinician’s current scope, status and identity. There is also the ability for the Hospital/Health Service to log supervision and restrictions against the whole scope or specific procedure to ensure strict compliance.

Improve Efficiency

With the ability to apply actions and tasks in bulk rather than individually and a user based task management system, say goodbye to repeating the same steps multiple times.
Track the entire credentialing process from a central dashboard with a fully configurable workflow.

Comprehensive Reporting

A sophisticated reporting suite is included that allows for detailed reports based on any field of data. Pull up a list of clinicians that require re-credentialing, that need to renew their AHPRA registration, radiation licence or insurance, or even export a complete list of clinicians credentialed within a given time period. Report by unit, department, hospital or entire Health Service level.

Simple to Use

There’s no further need for paper-based processes; access all required data with an intuitive web based platform designed for all levels of IT literacy. Fully flexible, customisable and secure role based user access. Health services have the ability to assist a clinician with their profile, and/or submission of required documents (with approval from the clinician).


eCredential has a direct interface to AHPRA’s National Medical Registration Database allowing real-time verification of all clinicians.
