SafeGuard Background Screening Announces Comprehensive Background Check Program for Health & Medical Providers

Cleveland, Ohio (PRWEB) September 16, 2013

SafeGuard Background Screening, a leading provider of employment screening and drug testing services today announced the launch of a comprehensive background check for program specific for Health & Medical Providers.

Health care transactions are trust-based transactions and the failure to verify, comply, manage risk or reputation could be very costly to Health care and medical organizations. SafeGuard's data products support a well-deployed compliance program, mitigate risks for revenue and reputation loss and help health care and medical providers to know the employees they engage are not high-risk and that their credentials are accurate.

What is FACIS®?

SafeGuard's Sanctions and Disciplinary Actions Search leverages the powerful FACIS® solution to pull information from Federal and State sources (including OIG, GSA, DEA, FDA, ORI, PHS and Tricare), plus all State boards that issue certificates or licenses to practice.

FACIS® (Fraud and Abuse Control Information System) is a report of OIG, GSA, JCAHO, NCQA and URAC accredited sources for healthcare and medical providers.

FACIS® acquires, aggregates, links and publishes sanctions and disciplinary actions through our Fraud and Abuse Control Information System or “FACIS®”. “Sanctions” includes any type of official conviction, debarment, decree, denial, disciplinary action, disqualification, exclusion, expulsion, hindrance, order, penalty, probation, reprimand, sanction, suspension, termination or any type of adverse action taken against a certificate holder, registrant or license/licensee.


FACIS® meets the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO)’s ten evaluation principles for standards to be considered a primary source reporter.

FACIS® provides a single source option for sanctions data, license data, DEA, sex offender, criminal searches, and the credentialing services requested by BMC.

FACIS® secures data or contacts all primary sources. We do not rely on any 3rd party or self-reported content.

FACIS® is both National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) and URAC accredited/certified. Only a handful of data providers across the country can claim that distinction.

FACIS® includes Federal plus full taxonomy by state/district/ commonwealth /territory against all boards, agencies or regulatory entities that issue certificates, registrations or licenses (i.e. approximately 830, considerably more than just MDs and DOs alone) to practice or deliver healthcare goods or services (i.e. persons, professionals, and entities).

FACIS® includes all state-level sanctions in addition to the information provided from the federal sources above. Without a complete review of available state-level sanctions data, clients run the risk of missing individuals and entities who are trying to hide their record by hopping states or health professions. Individuals can change business names or paper ownership, and/or attest they have "never" been sanctioned when in fact they have.
