SPCB Partners with Heuristic to Launch CSP™ Credentialing Management System

Tampa, FL, June 17, 2013 — The Specialty Pharmacy Certification Board (SPCB) is pleased to announce that they have contracted with Heuristic Solutions to implement the LearningBuilder credentialing management system for the Certified Specialty Pharmacist (CSP) program. Heuristics’ LearningBuilder application will provide CSP applicants with a user friendly online application process as well as online continuing education tracking to support certification maintenance requirements.

Heuristics’ Principal, Ali Neal, stated “We are delighted to bring our intuitive, web-based technology to the pharmacists applying for the Certified Specialty Pharmacist program and to support them in their ongoing professional development.” The LearningBuilder system will streamline the CSP eligibility verification and examination application process to ensure all applications are processed accurately.

“Our goal in working with Heuristics is to create an easy to use interface for pharmacists that will simplify application and professional development tracking,” said Gary M. Cohen, BSPharm, RPh, SPCB Interim Executive Director. Once certification is attained, CSPs will use the system to identify personalized learning goals as well as track their continuing education credits and progress toward recertification requirements.

The SPCB, launched in 2012, is an independent, not-for-profit entity whose sole mission is the certification of professionals who meet specific eligibility requirements and pass a rigorous assessment instrument. The SPCB is independent from any trade or professional association. The SPCB is dedicated to promoting the specialty pharmacist’s unique responsibility, maintaining the highest quality standards, and advocating for professional development to ensure that specialty patients receive appropriate care now and in the future. The goal of the CSP program is to assure the general public receives care from qualified, educated and knowledgeable specialty pharmacists.

LearningBuilder is recognized as the industry leading credentialing management software, the only platform designed to address the unique needs of accreditation, certification, and licensing organizations.
