Primary Source Verification

As a healthcare provider, the responsibility of providing premium-quality care to patients lies in your hands. But quality care and patient safety can be assured only when you hire the right medical staff.

The advancements in technology have made it very easy for medical practitioners to modify and doctor their credentials in an effort to access higher-paying healthcare jobs. One way to ensure that you hire a trustworthy and truly licensed team of practitioners is to implement primary source verification.

At HRX, our team of qualified and experienced specialists will track, verify, and validate the various credentials and licenses of your medical staff, helping you manage the quality of medical care you offer.

Why do healthcare providers need primary source verification?

The United States healthcare industry is regulated by numerous institutional bodies, such as the Department of Health and Human Services, Education Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates, American Board of Medical Specialties, and the American Medical Association, amongst others. Each federal or state regulatory body has its own requirements that doctors, nurses, radiologists, pharmacists, and so on must comply with to be licensed practitioners.

With primary source verification, you can easily check whether the people you have hired (or plan to hire) have obtained the academic and residency requirements necessary to practice as licensed medical professionals in the United States.

With primary source verification, you can ensure that your patients are always in safe hands and your facility complies with all regulatory requirements. You will be able to prevent fraudulent claims and avoid any lawsuits that may arise because of your association with the criminally-minded.
