Phoenix (PRWEB) June 15, 2009
Universal Background Screening, a leading provider of background checks specializing in healthcare, today announced that it has renewed its alliance with HealthcareSource, developer of the Position Manager applicant tracking system. The company has been awarded the distinction of Preferred Integration Partner as part of HealthcareSource's new partner program.
Universal Background Screening has worked in partnership since integrating with HealthcareSource in 2006. HealthcareSource Position Manager is the leading applicant tracking solution for healthcare, used at over 1,000 healthcare facilities. HealthcareSource helps organizations acquire, develop and retain the best workforce possible in order to maximize the quality and efficiency of patient care.
"Universal Background Screening is honored to renew our affiliation with HealthcareSource as a Preferred Partner," said Ryan Krostue, CEO of Universal Background Screening. "With over 100 hospital and healthcare facilities as mutual customers, we have built a reputation among the Position Manager user base as a reputable, customer-service focused provider that understands the unique needs of the Healthcare community.
Universal's comprehensive screening solutions for Healthcare include criminal background checks, Joint Commission-compliant primary source employment, education, professional licensure and reference verifications, annual background checks and re-screening, professional license/certification renewal management, employee exit interviews, drug testing, electronic I-9/E-Verify, FCRA compliance and related services. Universal Background Screening's technology is certified by the HR-XML Consortium for integration with Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) and Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS).
"In developing our new Partner Program, we researched the market and talked to customers to find best-of-class vendors. That process reaffirmed our experience that Universal is among the top background screening providers that service the healthcare community," said Michael DiPietro, Vice President of Marketing for HealthcareSource. "Universal Background Screening has been a valued partner of HealthcareSource since 2006, and I am pleased to renew our relationship with them as a Preferred Integration Partner."
The Universal-Position Manager integrated solution provides background check services that are seamlessly integrated into the recruitment and hiring process. Applicant data is securely and automatically transferred to Universal upon initiation of a background check, eliminating the need for faxing or redundant data entry. The result is a more efficient, accurate and timely screening process that is used by hospitals and health systems throughout the United States.
"In performing our due diligence for a background screening vendor that was integrated with our Position Manager applicant tracking system, we found that Universal Background Screening's reputation for customer service and integration experience were second-to-none," said Seth Lee, Vice President of Talent Acquisition - Human Resources for the Bon Secours Health System. "Universal Background Screening has worked in true partnership with Bon Secours to develop and implement a comprehensive, Joint Commission-compliant background screening program.
