RSRCH20 International Credentialing Expansion

Within the credentialing community, we have seen increased interest in international expansion. This research explores the interest of the Institute for Credentialing Excellence (ICE) membership in international expansion and to determine what resources would be of value. This report includes the results of two data collections conducted by the International Expansion Task Force for the ICE Research and Development Committee. Data was collected at the 2016 and 2017 ICE Exchanges during the Research and Development Summit. The data collection was spread across two years to increase the number of participants and to provide a mild consistency check. The purpose of these brief surveys was to collect data from professionals operating within established organizations that offer credentialing options and vendors that support credentialing programs. In 2016, 129 respondents participated in the survey; in 2017, 122 participants responded.
