Update to Health Care Background Screening and How to Reduce Hiring Risk

Gain an understanding of the proper employment process specific to background checks for medical professionals.

This topic will provide you with a better understanding of background checks for health care organizations that have employees who work with patients and interact with medical records. Any health care professional knows there can be dire consequences if a patient is harmed, either because an employee was unsuitable or did not have the credentials claimed or privacy is compromised. Failures in hiring can result in a parade of horrible, including lawsuits, investigations, and a loss of public trust, to name a few. This material will provide an overview of critical aspects of health care background screening processes in order to reduce risk in hiring. Directed to intermediate attendees, this information may also be valuable to individuals with responsibility for hiring, including health care executives who oversee that function.
