Credentialing & Privileging System

The Provincial Practitioner Credentialing and Privileging System includes AppCentral, a web-based component of CACTUS. AppCentral allows practitioners to submit their appointment and reappointment applications online when required by a BC Health Authority or Providence Health Care. It also includes the completion of the Provincial Privileging Dictionaries within AppCentral.

Physicians, dentists, midwives, nurse practitioners and other regulated health care professionals will use AppCentral if they are affiliated with the following:

  • Fraser Health
  • Interior Health
  • Island Health
  • Northern Health
  • Providence Health Care
  • Provincial Health Services Authority
  • Vancouver Coastal Health

Thanks for your feedback on year one in AppCentral. Practitioner input has helped inform an improvement plan for future re/appointments. See the AppCentral-Feedback_Report2016
