Exceptional background screening solutions for a demanding industry
In a high-pressure, deeply-regulated industry such as healthcare, organizations are expected to provide the highest standard of care and make patient safety a top priority.
Employers want to hire highly qualified, caring people for the safety and well-being of their patients. In the healthcare industry, however, the pool of superior candidates can be limited, making it imperative for employers to be expeditious in their hiring decisions by implementing an effective, efficient and compliant background screening program. Verifying skills, experience, and licensing credentials, can help you positively identify applicants who possess the desired qualifications while minimizing the risk of non-adherence to regulations and costly negligent hiring lawsuits.
A complete healthcare background screening program combines a criminal package with specific healthcare searches and other relevant solutions. This will allow your organization to comply with federal and state regulations and guidelines, in addition to promoting healthcare industry best practices. IntelliCorp can help you design a program to meet your organization’s unique hiring requirements by layering the products and services that are appropriate for specific positions and levels of job responsibility. Your customized healthcare screening package can include:
Certain records are updated frequently, particularly those relevant to healthcare employees.

IntelliCorp offers a solid and thorough system for rescreening employees and volunteers.
