Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) January 29, 2013
License verification is a common concern for human resources executives at healthcare facilities. Accrediting bodies, like The Joint Commission, require strict compliance with license verification standards (M.S. 4.10, HR.02.01.04, etc.) and the public has high expectations for healthcare professionals to be properly qualified and credentialed. HR departments can verify the license statuses of their employees one at a time via State Board websites, but this is time consuming, tedious and impractical on a daily basis.
One software firm, CE Broker Inc, has recently announced an automated solution for license verification that can shoulder much of this burden. CE Broker is the electronic continuing education tracking system for the Florida Department of Health and has launched EverCheck as its web-based license verification solution. Thirty percent of the hospitals in Florida use CE Broker’s cloud service to proactively manage their workforce with daily license verifications through the “Primary Source,” and the same technology is now available to hospitals nationwide through EverCheck.
EverCheck has automated the rote process of manual license verifications and complies with all respective accrediting body requirements. State licenses, national certifications – including DEA certifications – can all be handled by EverCheck.com. HR representatives will immediately be emailed if there is a problem with an employee’s license so that individual can be promptly removed from the floor.
Current processes for license verification expose hospitals to unexpected risks, surprises during Joint Commission surveys, and nearly uncapped liabilities. Many hospitals depend upon their employees to maintain active, valid licenses but really should consider additional safeguards with systems like EverCheck. Visit EverCheck.com to learn more.
