In response to rising rates of fatal large truck crashes, rampant fraudulent activity around medical exams, and a damning audit from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Office of Inspector General, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has embarked on a project to rebuild and deploy a new national registry for medical examiners.

The afternoon module will present our technology partners and their solutions to assist medical examiners in carrying out efficient documentation and management of the entire commercial driver examination process.
Each session will address a question or concern from attendees, with 2 or 3 technology partners demonstrating how their solution solves the issue for the examiner.
We will address questions such as:
* For drivers with known chronic conditions, how can we best alert them regarding needed medical documentation in advance of their next exam in order to avoid "determination pending" or short term (< 1 yr) certification?
* How can the examiner be alerted of FMCSA standards or guidelines regarding examination findings?
* How do employer/client portals enhance the certification process?
