Background screening is vital to the healthcare industry
Peopletrail offers comprehensive background screening services that are tailor-made for the healthcare industry. Background screening is essential in the healthcare sector because of the close patient-staff relationship. As a healthcare organization, you must do everything possible to prevent fraud, theft, and protecting patients.
The healthcare industry, over the past few decades, has increased its dependency on digital and electronic mediums for data storage and everyday functioning. The risks have potentially increased even though there has been a significant improvement in cooperation and efficiency with which different departments work together.
There is no hiding the fact that patient health information (PHI) is valuable and you don’t want the wrong person to gain access to these electronically or physically. This is why we recommend detailed and exhaustive background screenings for all employees hired by a healthcare facility.

You need to make sure that your staff is beyond reproach while ensuring compliance with the various screening standards and legislations. Peopletrail has everything it takes to help you stay abreast and in compliance with the ever-changing rules and regulations governing the healthcare industry.

Recommended background checks for the healthcare sector
We recommend the following solutions as basic background checks and screening.
Education Background Check
Healthcare organizations need to conduct meticulous verification of educational qualifications of an applicant. You don’t want doctors, nurses, and other staff that do not hold the necessary degrees. Our education background check scrutinizes certification courses, training programs, and internships.
Public Database Check
Our database check can reveal a lot of information about a potential candidate. We scrutinize proprietary and public databases of the candidate to make sure there are no criminal records, financial frauds, or other undesirable matters linked to their names.
OIG Excluded Parties/Medicaid Sanctions List
Medical providers are required to check the following exclusion databases when hiring an individual or contract with another entity to ensure compliance:
- List of Excluded Individuals and Entities (LEIE) this is the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG) List of Excluded Individuals and Entities (LEIE). Peopletrail’s access to this database is quick and easy returning any excluded individual or entity back to you in a rapid, easy to read format.
- System for Award Management (SAM) this is a Federal Government owned and operated website. The SAM system brings functionality from multi federal systems into one system (SAM). The excluded Parties Lists System (EPLS) was created to produce a list of individuals and firms excluded by Federal government agencies from receiving federal contracts or federally approved subcontracts and from certain types of federal financial and nonfinancial assistance and benefits.
Criminal Background Check
It is essential to watch out for past criminal activities before hiring someone in the healthcare industry. This is why we recommend criminal background screening to examine any past convictions thoroughly. Our search can reveal both civil and criminal convictions since we run the check at multiple levels.
Employment Background Check
Employment checks are considered a crucial component of the background screening process in any industry. However, it is of utmost importance in the healthcare industry. Peopletrail offers accurate reports after careful examination of a candidate’s professional history. This includes their previous job positions, responsibilities, a period of employment, and reasons for leaving. This check offers information on whether the candidate is truthful on their resume or not.
Peopletrail offers an identity check as part of the background screening process to help you verify whether the candidate is actually who they claim to be. Healthcare employees in almost any job role are privy to sensitive information. We verify the identity of candidates with the help of their government-issued documents.
Alcohol & Drug Testing
Employees in the healthcare sector need to work with other people, many of whom can be in a vulnerable state. It is crucial for the employees to be in a sober state. Also, you don’t want to hire a person with a history of substance abuse to have access to drugs in your organization. We conduct alcohol and drug testing through certified laboratories using blood and urine samples of the candidates.
Credentials check allows you to make confident hiring decisions making sure that everything with an individual’s license or education checks out. Peopletrail can successfully verify professional credentials to authenticate their medical practice. This can be carried out for doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, or any other medical practitioner.
