Responder Profile

​Your Responder profile refers to the online profile you created when you registered with the Maryland Responds Registry. It stores all of your contact information as well as your training and deployment records. Once you have completed the initial registration process, you will be able to log in to your account any time using your username and password to update your account information.

R2R Step 1:  Complete your Responder Profile

In order for you to reach Ready Responder status, the State Program must be able to verify your identity and health care credentials (if applicable). The Maryland Responds Registry categorizes the available occupations as either “medical” or “non-medical.” Licensed health care occupations are found under the medical category, while non-licensed occupations are found under the non-medical category.
 

Responders with a Non-Medical Occupation:

Responders with a non-medical occupation are volunteers without specific medical training and experience. They do not perform medical care, but are essential to public health and the emergency health care response as they may be needed to support a deployment of health care volunteers. If you are a non-medical Responder, follow these steps to complete your profile:
  1. Log into your Responder profile: at: https://mdresponds.health.maryland.gov/
  2. Select the My Profile tab at the top of the page
  3. Click the Summary sub tab
  4. Starting with the Identity section, click each of the 7 section links to open the page and enter ALL information requested.
  5. Once you have completed all sections of your profile, add the training course, R2R Step 1: Profile Completion, to your training section. 

Responders with a Medical Occupation:

Responders with a medical occupation have medical training and experience. The Maryland Responds State Program must verify the credentials of Responders who hold a medical license. The status of your license verification affects your ability to volunteer with Maryland Responds MRC and your scope of practice during deployment. If you are a Responder with a medical occupation:

  1. Log into your Responder profile: at: https://mdresponds.health.maryland.gov/
  2. Select the My Profile tab at the top of the page
  3. Click the Summary sub tab
  4. Starting with the Identity section, click each of the 7 section links to open the page and enter ALL information requested.
  5. Pay special attention to the Occupation section of your Responder profile. In order for the state to verify your health care credentials, you must enter ALL information requested under your Occupation section. This includes:
    • Status of your professional license
    • Professional license information
    • Specialty certification
    • Current clinical place of practice
    • DEA registration (if applicable)
    • Education and experience
  6. Once you have completed all sections of your profile, add the training course, R2R Step 1: Profile Completion, to your profile training section.
