Provider Registration Open for OnBoard: Limited Release

While we prepare for the Board's new business information system, OnBoard, and its early component OnBoard: Limited Release (available via the Medical Portal this summer), there are a few steps you can take now so you'll have access to the new system when it's ready.

Health care providers who will be using the Medical Portal to access OnBoard: Limited Release (or to apply for Board authorization) need an user ID and password.

The updated Medical Portal section of the website contains all of the details and information you need regarding how to register and get a user ID and password (and grant registration to others) to access OnBoard: Limited Release.

For additional information, including a walkthrough of the registration process, you can view a recording of the May 11, 2021 webinar for health care providers. You can also view an OnBoard: Limited Release fact sheet and FAQs for providers. Questions? Write to
