The Healthcare Professional Profiles Program (HPPP) was established through the Michael Skolnik Medical Transparency Act. This Act was originally passed in 2007 and only applied to physicians. The Act required physicians to complete online questionnaires or "profiles”. The intent behind this law was for the consumers in Colorado to have access to information about their physicians so they could make more informed healthcare decisions. In 2010, the Colorado legislature passed the Michael Skolnik Medical Transparency Act of 2010. This expanded the profiling requirement to include 22 additional license types including Social Work.

All Social Work licensees need to create a new user ID and password on their first visit to the HPPP system here.
As a Social Work licensee you must comply with two programs: HPPP and Continuing Professional Development (CPD). Compliance with these two programs does not automatically renew your license - you will still need to follow the steps for license renewal during the license renewal period.
