LexisNexis® Screening Solutions Increases Its Support of Health Care Industry with Robust Suite of Health Care Credentialing Solutions
June 1, 2011 — Helps providers put medical professionals to work faster by efficiently confirming their credentials
New York, NY —LexisNexis® Screening Solutions, a leading global background screening provider, announces today the expansion of its offerings to the health care industry with the launch of LexisNexis® Health Care Credentialing Solutions―a comprehensive, one-stop shop of industry compliant verifications, sanctions searches and other services that help validate the credentials of medical professionals. By using the market-leading expertise, data quality and advanced technology available through LexisNexis, organizations will receive more in-depth credentialing data in less time when compared to internal or third-party resources, and gain the distinct advantages of enhanced industry compliance, faster placement of medical professionals, brand protection and revenue support.
“The faster health care providers can put their medical staff to work, the quicker they can deliver services, bill for those services and generate revenue,” said Ginny Gomez, vice president, Product Management, LexisNexis. “That’s exactly what our credentialing solutions help them accomplish – put the most qualified medical professionals to work faster.”
In addition to the fast, comprehensive credentialing results, there are other key reasons why more healthcare providers are outsourcing this traditionally manual, time-consuming task to LexisNexis instead of performing it internally or using a third-party resource. These include:
- Unmatched report quality that helps them spot risk faster. All LexisNexis credentialing reports begin with a summary section that can include easy-to-read red, yellow or green-colored flags that summarize results against the provider’s credentialing requirements.
- Access to extensive verification tools that address key areas of risk including education and training, professional licensure and identification, professional experience and industry sanctions.
- Enhanced industry compliance with credentialing standards set forth by The Joint Commission and the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), in addition to state and federal laws such as the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACT Act).
LexisNexis Health Care Credentialing Solutions are available in convenient standard packages, or health care organizations can collaborate with LexisNexis to build custom packages that ensure unique areas of risk are fully addressed.
This powerful credentialing solution suite further strengthens the risk mitigation support LexisNexis Screening Solutions provides to the health care industry with its current services which include specialized pre-hire screening solutions and medical compliance solutions, an electronic document management resource that helps organizations centralize and standardize industry-specific compliance documentation.
