Medpass goes where you go

The MedPass gives providers and other stakeholders remote, secure access to an individual’s or entity’s digital credentialing profile. Data is handled differently based on whether it’s static or dynamic. Once static data, such as date of birth and education are verified, those fields are locked so that no alterations can be made and will never have to be primary source verified again. Dynamic data derived from monitoring is added to CheckMedic on a timeline that tracks each instance a new record is found and verified as a match.

While CheckMedic is your centralized, single source of truth for your entire enterprise, the MedPass is an individual digital profile, or medical credentialing hub for each provider, staff, and entity. Results of monitoring with CheckMedic transfer to the MedPass so it is always current. Since it’s portable and securely accessed with assigned user rights, the MedPass is perfect for verifying credentials for telemedicine, locum tenens, hospitalists, and traveling nurses.

Verisys eliminates the blind spots and guesswork on the administrative side so you can focus on provider development and your providers can focus on patient care.

Our compliance team will ensure you are compliant to the quality standards you are committed to such as Det Norske Veritas (DNV), Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (HFAP), National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), The Joint Commission (TJC), and Utilization Review Accreditation Organization (URAC). CheckMedic was created to meet each one of these standards, making it the leading turnkey solution for provider credentialing and compliance.

All your credentials. All in one place

CheckMedic centralizes and assures provider data quality and delivers an intuitive interface for providers and administration across your entire enterprise. Typically, employment screening and credentialing are siloed departments within a healthcare system. This creates many issues not only for the provider, but for the Chief Medical Officer, the credentialing committee, the medical staff office, and Human Resources. Here is a common scenario:

Disparate data sources

HR uses its favorite source for employment screening to verify the applicant for the cardiovascular department. Search results return a “clear” status, and the applicant moves forward to the medical staff services department to begin the credentialing process.

Time gaps in primary source data acquisition

The medical staff services department begins the credentials verification process, and five weeks pass before the licensing board responds to the request to verify license status. The wait is even longer for verification of the provider’s specialty certifications for heart valve replacement. Eight weeks later, most of the verifications have come through and the application is brought to the credentialing committee.

Wait, something’s not right here

The credentialing committee reviews the application and approves it while awaiting the collection of peer reviews. Meanwhile, one of the medical staff services experts notices a red flag.

I thought you loaded the sleeping bags

Upon further examination, it is discovered that the applicant is debarred and in the process of appealing an exclusion. The health system’s onboarding process allowed for the assumption that HR’s background screening data source included exclusion screening against a current and reliable database that publishes other adverse actions that are predictive to exclusion such as debarments, sanctions, and disciplinary actions which is what FACIS delivers instantly.

Who’s going to break it to him?

The Medical Director recommends rescinding the original offer and ceases the application process. After eight weeks now, the applicant files a complaint against the hospital with the state medical board for breach of contract. And the search begins again to fill the spot in cardiovascular surgery.

We back you all the way

The safety of your patients depends on making sound hiring decisions and ensuring that the licenses of your staff are current and in line with privileges. CheckMedic gives you the best data, a powerful, dynamic platform, and a dedicated compliance and credentialing team with deep knowledge to guide you every step of the way.
