Background

The MVMA is excited to announce that it is in the process of deploying a new data management system. This investment in infrastructure will:

  • Improve licence and registration processes
  • Increase security of member data
  • Improve the MVMA’s ability to collect and review member and practice data
  • Simplify Corporation Permiting
  • Simplify the PIPS Inspection Process
  • Increase the security of Peer Review Complaints data

The 2023/2024 Renewal is the first stage of deployment of the new data management system.This stage in the deployment will be very similar to the processes under the former system.

We are excited to show you the improvements to our processes as the project continues over the next year.
