Health care providers need to focus their time and energy on core business functions that directly involve caring for their clients
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 5, 2010
CredentialedCARE Corporation announced the launch of its newest Web site, CredentialedCARE.com, where employers can conveniently perform comprehensive searches and employment verification checks on prospective health care employees.
Founded by Dr. Gerald W. Flanagan, CredentialedCARE Corp. exists to elevate the transparency and accountability in the home care services industry. CredentialedCARE.com will solve the problem created by the lack of reliable information about care providers and will serve as a vehicle to empower consumers (patients) to make informed decisions about specific home care providers. Membership in the CredentialedCARE Network will give providers a way to demonstrate their commitment to delivering high-quality care to consumers, helping them promote, market and grow their business.
By visiting CredentialedCARE.com, comprehensive medical credentialing and background checks can be performed on prospective new hires, as well as existing employees. Additionally, verification of address, identity and social security numbers for individuals will be included in the standard package and the company will check thousands of different databases to locate previous criminal activity. Medical credentialing checks are performed for prospective hires that require training, education or licensing. Elective options for visitors at the CredentialedCARE.com web site include previous employment checks, motor vehicle checks and more.
CredentialedCARE.com also simplifies the navigation of state-by-state guidelines for direct care workers such as certified nurse assistants and personal care aides. The criteria follow each state's legal codes to the letter. And in states that lack specific credentialing guidelines, CredentialedCARE.com has established their own guidelines based on a dominant consensus of laws from other states. As health care reform continues to be integrated into the US health care system, CredentialedCARE constantly monitors each state's credentialing regulations, scanning for even the slightest changes.
Dr. Gerald W. Flanagan, CredentialedCARE CEO, watched helplessly as his father-in-law continued to suffer year after year with multiple sclerosis. He remembers that "The lack of information about home care providers that was available for my father-in-law was disheartening. I dedicated myself to increasing the transparency and accountability of care providers, and to enable patients to make informed decisions about the organizations and their workers."
"Health care providers need to focus their time and energy on core business functions that directly involve caring for their clients," Flanagan explains. "CredentialedCARE.com's services help organizations to free up significant resources that are normally depleted by non-core, recurring functions such as qualifying, interviewing, hiring and managing health care workers. In addition, CredentialedCARE offers comprehensive, optimized Internet search results for its clients, enabling patients to more easily identify and hire verified CredentialedCARE members."
Along with Dr. Flanagan, Barry Wallace (C.F.O) and Mindy Flanagan (Director of Marketing) make up the professional management team at CredentialedCARE. Together they strive to ensure the integrity and consistency of delivering excellent standards of patient care across the industry.
Flanagan concludes, "We all are diligent about maximizing the probability that any given patient will receive the best care possible from health care professionals; care that demonstrates the epitome of professionalism in their respective fields. We're here to affect that by providing highly accurate and relevant information that accommodates intelligent consumer and employer decision-making."
CredentialedCARE.com is an online portal that benefits health care organizations in the long-term care industry. Employers are able to perform a comprehensive array of credentialing, background, driving and other checks on prospective and existing employees. Patients can access the necessary resources to make informed choices concerning available health care organizations. In cooperation with the Center for Home Care Excellence (CHCE), CredentialedCARE proactively supports industry and consumer groups, associations and policy makers to create and promote national standards and policies that benefit accountability, credibility, visibility and performance of the workers and industries in long-term health care services.
