Every hospital should have some safeguard in place to monitor license statuses.
Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) July 27, 2012
CE Broker Inc. is the official continuing education system for the Florida Department of Health and has provided a license verification system for healthcare employers in Florida since 2005. The company has recently made its license verification service available nationwide. Under a new brand EverCheck the web-service verifies employee licensure daily to ensure that all healthcare staff holds valid licenses.
"We have operated a paperless license verification system for the last seven years and serve over 30% of the hospitals in Florida," said COO, Brian Solano. "Now we are ready to make our system available to all healthcare employers across the country."
EverCheck automates the license verification process and builds permanent employee histories to meet the primary source standards of accrediting bodies such as the Joint Commission and DNV Healthcare. Many healthcare organizations still manually verify individual licenses on State websites and print documentation to provide proof. The trend, however, is moving towards automation and there are many organizations now selling credentialing software.
Hospitals risk litigation and setbacks during Joint Commission Surveys should it be discovered that unlicensed employees are providing care. Insurance companies may also withhold payment for services rendered if providers do not hold valid licenses. Every hospital should have some safeguard in place to monitor license statuses.
"We find that other credentialing companies offer a comprehensive package but often overlook or underserve ongoing state license verifications," Solano continued. "We want to be the cost-effective complement for credentialing departments, focused solely on state license verification."
