CredentialCheck Addresses Staffing Shortages with Advanced Healthcare Background Screening Solutions.

CredentialCheck, a leading provider of healthcare background screening solutions, is responding to the critical staffing shortages plaguing the healthcare industry. With the current challenges exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and societal shifts in work models, CredentialCheck offers innovative technology-enabled background screening solutions to help healthcare providers overcome these obstacles.


According to a recent analysis conducted by Mercer, there will be an expected shortage of 3.2 million healthcare workers by 2026, particularly in hospitals and health systems. This shortage can have detrimental effects on patient care and the overall functioning of healthcare organizations. To address this issue, CredentialCheck is empowering healthcare providers with advanced healthcare background screening technology to streamline the hiring process and ensure the recruitment of qualified candidates.


To expand their talent pool, healthcare HR teams need to think creatively. Strategies such as recruiting from other countries, enhancing social media recruitment efforts, and establishing internal staffing agencies are some of the ways to attract a diverse range of healthcare professionals. CredentialCheck supports these initiatives by offering streamlined background check services, reducing complexity and turnaround times.


A recent study commissioned by Sterling and conducted by Forrester Consulting revealed that many healthcare HR decision-makers saw the potential for improvement in candidate screening, onboarding, and employee retention through the use of technology. By integrating advanced background screening technology into existing applicant tracking systems, healthcare providers can customize and automate workflows, initiate background checks more efficiently, and make informed hiring decisions.


Furthermore, healthcare organizations face unique challenges in complying with extensive laws and regulations. CredentialCheck recognizes these complexities and offers healthcare-specific solutions to simplify the management of hiring, credentialing, and monitoring requirements. By partnering with CredentialCheck, healthcare providers can navigate Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) requirements, federal, state, and local regulations, as well as accreditation standards.


CredentialCheck invites healthcare providers to leverage their advanced background check technology to overcome staffing shortages and optimize the recruitment process. With a focus on accuracy, compliance, and efficiency, CredentialCheck ensures that healthcare organizations can fill critical roles with qualified candidates, ultimately improving patient care and organizational success.
