					Homeopathic Medical Examiners Board
 Description
  The Board of Homeopathic Medical Examiners reviews and examines the education, experience,
  and background of applicants to determine if they possess the qualifications required by law to
  practice homeopathic medicine and any of the subspecialties within the scope of practice. Annually,
  licensees renew their licenses, permits, and registrations and provide updated information about the
  nature of their practices. Upon receipt of complaints against licensed homeopathic physicians, the
  Board conducts investigations and holds hearings, taking disciplinary action as necessary to protect
  the public safety.

 IT Vision
  The board looks forward to refining its Website so that information can be readily available to
  licensees, the public and other interested parties. The board will continue to integrate and automate
  licensing and complaint functions in a PC Windows environment. It is the Board's intention to
  enhance its licensee screens to include applicant filings and all complaint actions from the past to the
  present. A coordination of website information with the Board's data base should make it possible to
  provide up-to-date information to other medical licensing boards, state agencies, the governor's office
  and the legislature in comprehensive form with a minimum of staff time. In its future, the board
  anticipates a decrease in its reliability on paper files and a substantial increase in electronic filing.

 IT Mission
  To promote the public health, safety and welfare through a self supporting program of licensing and
  regulation of homeopathic physicians, issuance of drug dispensing permits,and certification of
  homeopathic medical assistants and their supervisors. The board will also review practical
  education programs, and license locum tenens physicians.

Goal 2
                Provide up-to-date information to other medical licensing boards, state agencies, the
                governor's office and the legislature in comprehensive form with a minimum of staff
                time.
Objective 1
  Continue to refine and maintain integrated licensing and complaint databases
 Current Situation
  The board has developed a database of licensees and has begun the process of imputing
  complaint information. The Board needs to complete complaint entry, tie it to the webpage, and
  create a new database for medical assistants. There is no money in FY 01
 Performance Measures
   1   Percent complete of the 1998-1999 complaint histories entered into the physician data base
       Status      In Process
                                       Target 03    Actual 03     FY 04         FY 05         FY 06
       Category: Input

Goal 3
                Decrease reliability on paper files and increase electronic filing by ultimately making
                renewal available on-line
Objective 1
  Create and maintain archival electronic data
 Current Situation
  Expired and closed licensing and complaint files, reports and reference files have archival uses but
  take up too much room in board files.
 Performance Measures

       this agency.
