The Royal Dutch Medical Association check (RDMA)

Reliability and professionalism are important in healthcare. This is essential for the trust of patients and for the integrity of healthcare institutions. A fundamental roll in all of this is the RDMA check role in this.

Reducing risks with the RDMA check

By verifying authorisations and registrations of medical specialists within the Netherlands, you reduce several risks. For example:

  • Medical errors
  • Legal complications
  • Loss of the trust within patients
  • Reputational damage

When providing quality care, it is important that someone, who is registered in the RDMA. can prove that they have the right knowledge and expertise. A RDMA check ensures that all medical specialists meet the Dutch requirements within the healthcare sector.

Enforcing these rules results in high quality standards, protecting patients and protecting your organisation.

Why check The Royal Dutch Medical Association?

The RDMA check is an indispensable fundamental process to guarantee the highest quality within the healthcare sector. Medical specialists who are registered, can be employed by healthcare institutions with peace of mind.

These are the biggest advantages of the RDMA check:

  • Patients are protected from incompetent care performed by unauthorised professionals
  • Protecting the reputation of the healthcare institution
  • Preventing serious legal disputes
How does Validata check the RDMA for your organisation?

Validata takes the complexity of RDMA checks off your hands, so your healthcare organisation can focus on delivering excellent care to your patients. Our approach allows clients to comply with legal requirements without compromising their operational efficiency.

We do this by:

  • Performing a quick verification process of registration status. We aim to complete a check within 48 hours
  • Checking the data against the client’s specified information
  • Checking whether the candidate’s specialism is known in the RDMA and BIG register

The RDMA check is normally intended for specialists who have completed their training; if someone is in training, we can still check and will complete the check with a note.

How to recognise license restrictions?

The RDMA publishes license restrictions in Medical Contact. These are often suspensions or deletions of a registration as a result of a court ruling. Current professional restrictions are indicated in the BIG register.

The indicated restrictions may hinder a specialist in certain medical actions. It is important to recognise when a specialist is operating outside his/her limits. By strictly checking for this, you contribute to the safety and quality of patient care.

A RDMA check can be integrated with another screening from Validata. The process of the RDMA check will be simplified and accelerated this way. Clients are checked through an up-to-date register that contains the status and information of medical specialists.
