Healthcare Industry Background Screening

Are You Ready For The New Future Of Healthcare Background Check Services?

Quality Patient Care Begins with Quality Healthcare Candidates

The healthcare industry is evolving at a rapid pace – and hiring at lightning speed. Technological advancements coupled with elevated demand for more personalized care are contributing to significant industry growth, enabling practitioners to deliver quality care to millions of people every day.

Complete Healthcare Background Check Solutions

From pre-hire to post hire, get an accurate and complete picture of each candidate’s work experience and verified background histories. Confirm a candidate’s identity, verify experience records searches during the pre-hire process, check national and state databases, and conduct monitoring services once they’re cleared for work.

We take the time to understand your business and your needs, so you can make informed decisions about those you hire.

Onboard Quickly with Rapid Background Checks

Healthcare is a highly regulated industry, often requiring extensive background and criminal records screening and monitoring of vendors, contractors, employees, and volunteers.

Adding to the complexity of managing all those resources, navigating an abundance of changing state and local regulations can prove challenging. This is why it’s helpful to have a screening provider who is well-versed in the background screening requirements for the healthcare industry.

First Advantage Knows Healthcare

First Advantage Healthcare Exclusions, Actions, and Licensure (First Advantage HEAL™) is our most comprehensive search package for the healthcare industry and can be used for pre-employment screening, rescreening, and monitoring. HEAL features more than 5,000 sources including, but not limited to:

Healthcare Compliance Management

Background screening in the healthcare industry is complex. Background check requirements can vary widely by state, facility types, federal healthcare governing bodies, such as Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), and state Medicaid programs. We can help by providing data that empowers you to make the best recruitment decisions to mitigate risk and manage your compliance requirements.

Help Protect Your Brand with Continuous Monitoring

Ideal for positions that require a level of trust or certification, or have a direct impact on patient safety. Healthcare organizations can get the added benefit of receiving alerts on reportable records activities. First Advantage’s Criminal Records Monitoring is an FCRA-compliant service that  provides post-hire criminal records background reports for current employees or contractors on an ongoing basis, as records become known and reportable, not just at the time or hire, or during periodic rescreens.

Get Added Protection with HEAL™ Monitoring

Multiple accreditation organizations such as the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), Utilization Review Accreditation Committee (URAC), and the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JACHO) require healthcare organizations to verify that practitioners possess valid, current licenses to practice at the time the employment, and throughout the duration of their employment.

HEAL™ – First Advantage’s Healthcare License Monitoring confirms that an individual license is issued to the primary source, making sure that when the license is up for expiration, alerts are issued to ensure that licenses are renewed.

Real-Time Review from a Single Solution

Many health care organizations that lack ongoing monitoring  are reliant on time- and resource-constrained manual searches. Instead, HEAL Monitoring automatically checks for:

Ongoing monitoring is critical for healthcare providers. The OIG updates its List of Excluded Individuals and Entities (LEIE) on a monthly basis and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) includes requirements of monthly enrollment.

Background Screening Around the World

As healthcare workforces become more globally distributed  and internationally educated, individuals who work  in the industry continue to rise. It’s important to partner with a background screening provider whose solutions are globally-focused—from the vast amount of available in-country searches to our localized, feet-on-the-street processes, First Advantage consists of an experienced global management team.

First Advantage can perform global background checks for the healthcare industry virtually anywhere in the world and has easy access to data such as:

A Mobile-Friendly Candidate Process

With the healthcare sector projected to account for a third of all new employment, it’s critical that you don’t lose highly qualified candidates because your online application is too long or too complex. 

Profile Advantage minimizes data entry by importing functions, auto-populating address history based on candidate information and using drop-down menus. Profile Advantage leverages conversational UX to identify and request missing information while the candidate is using their mobile device. Requesting information in the moment rather than waiting until an application has been submitted limits unnecessary back and forth and decreases overall turnaround time.

Helping to decrease turnaround time by allowing candidates to submit their information quickly and easily via a mobile device, Profile Advantage yields impressive results for customers:

It also provides candidates with insight into how long the application process will take and allows them sign and submit directly from their mobile device.

3000% Growth

Telehealth usage in October 2020 compared to 2019, significantly increasing demand for qualified practitioners.1

86% Virtual Interviews

Social distancing protocols prompted companies to embrace virtual and remote hiring practices.

3,000 Drugstore Clinics
