Health navigator credentialing project and registry
Part of the Health Navigator Workforce Development Initiative includes developing a credentialing process for health navigator training programs. Initiative members envision that a trainee will learn a standard set of basic skills and pass a competency test, which will earn them a place on the registry. Employers who use the registry for new hires will know what skills and competencies they will have.
Both the credentialed training program and the health navigator registry will be voluntary. The system is expected to launch within the next two years.
