Verisys Corporation can help you protect patients with our Verified License Search and Status® Service
In light of the recent USA Today / Milwaukee Journal Sentinel where patients are being treated by doctors with impaired licenses, Verisys is proud to offer up its Verified License Search and Status® (VLSS) service.
Verified License Search and Status® by Verisys is a real-time transaction engine that protects organizations from fines and exposure by actively verifying, gathering, and monitoring primary source data on health care providers from licensing boards in all U.S. states.
An institution can protect patients with continuous licensure monitoring while meeting government standards and regulations. A license can be in any number of stages of being revoked which results in being excluded from practicing medicine. But practitioners whose license is impaired, suspended, pending, temporary, inactive, restricted, on probation, superseded or expired could put an institution at risk for exposure to fines as well as putting a patient in harms way.
Did you know that for every 1,000 health care professionals there will be 20 inactive or expired licenses, 10 suspended licenses, 3 providers on probation, 2 restricted or impaired and 1 revoked license? With Verified License Search and Status, an institution would know its own numbers of license status as well as know that all data is verified to 99.9% accuracy.
Verisys actively tracks licensing regulations and requirements across all U.S. states, territories, and jurisdictions. We use AddressWatch to locate other areas a provider has lived and find any additional licenses. This allows us to provide our client with a full license history: not only the provider’s current license, but all licenses the provider has held, past and present, across all taxonomies.
Unlike other services that only monitor when a provider’s license expires, Verisys lets you know if the license is currently active, when it expires (including notifications at 60, 30, and 7 days prior), and continuously monitors for all status changes: impaired, revoked, suspended, restricted, placed on probation, or superseded.
Verisys can see suspensions and other license status changes as early as six months before it hits on a disciplinary report. This is the kind of transparency that keeps patient safety front and center and the data and technology available through Verisys is currently in successful use by pharmacy retailers, hospitals, payers and pharmaceutical manufacturers.
