FACIS

DATA SUPERSOURCE

Why settle for only one data source for exclusions when you can see exclusions, debarments, sanctions, and disciplinary actions nationwide from 5,000 primary sources with one FACIS search?

10 Million Records

THE COMPLETE PACKAGE

FACIS (Fraud Abuse Control Information System) delivers 360-degree transparency on providers, staff, and entities for the organizations who hire, credential, refer, and reimburse for healthcare delivery such as retail pharmacies, telemedicine staffing companies, health systems, payers, and pharmaceutical companies.

When used for screening and monitoring, this comprehensive database protects your organization and patients from providers, workforce, vendors, volunteers, board members, research teams, and transportation suppliers who are excluded, debarred, sanctioned or disciplined. When you hire, affiliate with, or refer an excluded individual or entity, you and your organization could be excluded from participating in government programs as well as face Corporate Integrity Agreements (CIA), fines, civil monetary penalties, and pay restitution on the goods and services provided by an excluded provider.

The results speak for themselves:

  • Effective: 99.9% identity-to-record matching accuracy
  • Comprehensive: 5,000 primary sources are continually accessed and aggregated
  • Growing: 75,000 records added monthly to FACIS’ database of 10 million
  • Proven: 30 years of verified, aggregated historical data

ONLY THE BEST FOR YOUR STAKEHOLDERS. ONLY THE BEST FOR YOUR ORGANIZATION. ONLY FROM VERISYS.

THE GOLD STANDARD OF HEALTHCARE DATA

FACIS is the most comprehensive database for screening and monitoring healthcare providers, staff, and entities ensuring compliance and protecting you from legal, financial, and reputational risk.

Our database taps federal and state sources for exclusions, debarments, sanctions, and disciplinary actions against healthcare professionals and businesses for all published license types and publishing jurisdictions. Other credentials verification organizations (CVO) limit their searches by license type or to one or a few states.

Verisys delivers search results in several ways:

  • CheckMedic, our comprehensive cloud platform where all results are verified
  • VerisysConnect, our log-in accessible search portal where verifications can be added
  • Application Programming Interface (API)
  • Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP)
FACIS facilitates better hiring decisions and fuels your governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC) program.

10 MILLION REASONS TO CHOOSE FACIS

Verisys’ FACIS database of 10 million records identifies current and historical exclusions, debarments, sanctions, disciplinary actions, and adverse behaviors derived from more than 5,000 primary sources. Most healthcare delivery organizations screen and monitor providers against the OIG’s List of Excluded Individuals and Entities (LEIE); that’s only one of FACIS’ primary sources.

A FACIS search looks for results or potential matches from all federal data sources, including the OIG, SAM, FDA, DEA, Tricare, FBI, DOJ, and the U.S. Treasury and State Departments.

Wait. There’s more. FACIS also searches state-level Federal Healthcare Entitlement Program (FHEP) sources, such as state Medicaid exclusions, state contractor disqualification/debarment lists, Health Care Fraud Prevention & Enforcement Action Team (HEAT) task forces, state attorneys general, federal district attorneys general, as well as Medicare/Medicaid opt-out lists.

Verisys has collected historical and current data from primary sources since 1992. The result: a one-of-a-kind longitudinal healthcare database that gives organizations the ability to see every possible record associated with a provider, staff member, or an entity. Using FACIS makes it easy to lower risk to patients and your organization through identifying red-flag behaviors and trends.

Here’s how FACIS delivers value at every stage of your provider data management process:

1) Screening

Initial screening with FACIS acts as a powerful gate-keeping methodology to prevent hiring individuals or engaging with entities that introduce unnecessary risk to your organization. Thorough screening with FACIS coupled with a well-designed set of policies and bylaws can help an organization vet its workforce and supplier population. FACIS makes it easy to start with qualified and compliant individuals and entities, eliminating risk and the administrative burden that comes with legally removing a provider for adverse behavior.

2) Verifications

Verisys performs verifications on possible matches to determine “true identity” matches. That means we employ a team of verification analysts who are specially trained to resolve false positives and to verify matches with primary source data. Our team matches records to identities consistently with 99.9% accuracy.

We don’t just give you results; we provide documentation that supports you in disputes and audits. We return both clear and match results with categories assigned to each true match showing the status and severity of the action. All match results include unaltered data from the primary source with links to the documentation.

3) Monitoring

Continuously monitoring your population adds a layer of security and protection against fraud schemes and patient abuse. While monthly monitoring is required for regulatory compliance, continuous monitoring detects risk in real-time because we pull and aggregate all data into FACIS on the primary source’s publishing schedule. You can add or subtract providers and businesses from the monitored population at any time.

4) Data Results Return

Verisys offers many ways for organizations to access and implement FACIS searches and verification results. From secure file transfer protocol (SFTP), or application programming interface (API) when accessing FACIS through VerisysConnect, to the comprehensive credentialing platform CheckMedic, and the prescriber verification transaction engine, ProviderCheck.

Powering your provider management with FACIS assures gold-standard data, qualified providers, and governance integrity.
