Working with iMH as a Valued Medical Officer

People are at the heart of everything we do. And this extends to our clinicians. We are committed to building rewarding relationships with our VMOs based on mutual respect and trust. This commitment extends to partnering with our VMOs in the ongoing delivery and development of innovative mental health services to meet the needs of our local communities.

Whether you are looking to set up a successful private practice at our hospital, or wanting to provide continuity of care for your patients through your accessing our hospital services we would love to hear from you.

iMH has a range of partnership models available to suit your needs.

Equifax eCredentialing

iMH utilises Equifax eCredential for clinical credentialing. This solution provides health practitioners with the ability to create and maintain their own clinical profile via a secure online interface. There is only a requirement to complete your profile once and then it can be updated as required. Equifax also provides you with the ability to share your profile.

Following discussions you will be provided with an application to credential. To commence the credentialing process, please follow these steps:

  1. You will be sent an email inviting you to complete and submit your credentialing profile to the hospital.
  2. Your application will be reviewed by the hospital’s Clinical Credentialing and Privileges Committee.

Credentialing process at iMH

Upon receipt of your Equifax application the hospital’s Clinical Credentialing and Privileges Committee will, validate your credentials and once this process has satisfied the requirements under our by-laws, we offer you a letter to confirm visiting rights to the hospital.

Once credentialed, we will assist with the submission of a letters of support and facilitate the application process to Medicare to gain a provider number for you for the site.

The hospital will submit your applications to the private health insurers to register you to be eligible to be paid private health fund rates for your hospital work.
