Drug Screening

Healthcare Professional Screening

Service Details

Health care providers must meet certain federal and state compliance requirements designed to reduce fraud and protect patients.  These include verifying licenses on all professionals and conducting a comprehensive sanction investigation on all employees participating in federal health care programs. It may also be important to meet health care credentialing requirements of the Joint Commission (formerly the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations or JCAHO), the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) standards, and other industry accreditation programs or standards boards.

 As a baseline, it is recommended that health care providers approach screenings with these 10 Best Practices. By following these steps, you will enable your organization to progressively eliminate undesirable or under-qualified candidates and focus the investment of resources on the best candidates. While the following best practices offer general recommendations, you can customize screening practices based upon individual organization needs or specific job category requirements.
