You want to give your students every edge you can. Make sure your best and brightest meet the standards and qualifications of the healthcare facilities that might hire them, before the hiring even begins.

Meeting requirements

Clinical education programs provide vital hands-on experiences for students as they advance in their education. These students are involved in patient contact and should be held to the same standards of patient safety as would any hospital employee. Many clinical sites now require background checks for healthcare students rotating through their education program due to patient safety standards and Joint Commission guidelines.

Healthcare facilities requiring background checks for their clinical students must work with the educational institutions to ensure that students meet this requirement. The coordination of this requirement can be challenging and time consuming for all parties.

Assigning appropriate responsibility

StudentCheck is a fully integrated web-based solution that connects the clinical site, the school and the student so that the background check requirement is easily managed. StudentCheck assures that the various responsibilities of the background check requirement are appropriately handled.

Keep your staff in good standing

CredentCheck, a complete, secure, webbased outsourcing solution by PreCheck, makes sure that healthcare staff licenses are up to date and meet all state and federal requirements and standards. The Joint Commission requires that healthcare facilities keep track of their licensed staff and maintain compliance 100% of the time to be an accredited institution.


Match standards with Medicare and Medicaid

For organizations providing services to Medicare and Medicaid patients, ensuring an institution’s compliance with regulatory requirements prohibiting employment of sanctioned individuals has potentially very costly implications. Hiring or continuing to employ physicians, allied healthcare professionals, nurses, contractors or vendors who have been sanctioned or excluded can jeopardize your ability to be reimbursed by Medicare and Medicaid.


PractitionerCheck - Protect your integrity

Today's healthcare organizations typically exercise great diligence in verifying the academic credentials and relevant experience of their physicians and allied health professionals before these individuals begin work. Protect your patients and reputation with deeper criminal background investigations for physicians and other professionals you work with.
