PreCheck’s suite of healthcare talent screening tools helps organizations qualify and monitor talent throughout the full employee lifecycle.
What are the challenges your customers face and how does your solution address them?
The widespread opioid abuse costs employers nearly $12 billion, with 12 percent and higher of the workforce under the influence of drugs at workplaces. Such instances could potentially decrease employee productivity, increase workplace accidents, leading to a potentially hazardous environment for both drug users and their co-workers. Unfortunately, this is just the tip of the iceberg.
To confront such impediments, all healthcare employers must strike a balance between providing a safe and healthy work environment for their employees with a need to avoid potential liability when taking decisive, well-meaning, protective action.
As a certified Oracle integration partner, PreCheck can help healthcare organizations that leverage Oracle Recruiting Cloud and Oracle Taleo Enterprise to optimize their background screening and hiring processes
How does PreCheck’s background screening solution offer healthcare organizations streamlined talent screening with Oracle Recruiting Cloud and Oracle Taleo Enterprise integrations? Please elaborate.

By offering integrated employment screening solutions with Oracle Recruiting Cloud and Oracle Taleo Enterprise, PreCheck empowers healthcare organizations to streamline their hiring and talent screening processes while maximizing efficiency.

Please shed light on how PreCheck’s background screening solution on Oracle Cloud Marketplace enable customers to streamline their background screening and hiring processes with support for integrations for Oracle Recruiting Cloud and Oracle Taleo Enterprise.
As a certified Oracle integration partner, PreCheck can help healthcare organizations that leverage Oracle Recruiting Cloud and Oracle Taleo Enterprise to optimize their background screening and hiring processes. Our background screening solution is available on the Oracle Cloud Marketplace, which means healthcare organizations have access to a readily available software integration. As a result, employers can significantly reduce the level of effort required to implement the integration.
Could you illustrate all that was discussed above, with the help of a customer success story?
In one instance, a well renowned U.S.-based health system—having more than 150 hospitals under their umbrella—began experiencing issues as their existing employment screening providers’ drug testing laboratories were scattered all over the country. The health system sought a reliable screening partner that delivers the highest verification and customer satisfaction rates within the healthcare industry. PreCheck came to their aid, integrating the organization’s Oracle Taleo applicant tracking system with background screening while also consolidating and centralizing their entire HR operations. The health system was pleased with PreCheck’s service levels and responsiveness, as well as the best practices implemented through the partnership. This use case further exemplifies our commitment to supporting healthcare organizations at each stage of the employment lifecycle, delivering guaranteed success.
How do you make sure that your offerings help organizations to understand real-world requirements and fulfill them?
PreCheck healthcare suite of solutions includes thorough and timely background checks and drug tests to help healthcare employers comply with stringent employee screening protocols while providing new employees with enhanced experiences. Beyond background checks and drug tests, our suite of healthcare solutions includes:
healthcare license management that provides ongoing, post-hire primary source verification of licenses,
a comprehensive exclusion and sanction screening service,
electronic Form I-9 system to store supporting documentation electronically and submit to E-Verify,
a web-based system that provides instant employment and salary verifications, and
COVID-19 compliance solutions for monitoring immunization status, contact tracing, and self-attestation policies.
At its core, PreCheck’s thorough and effective background screening program not only improves the safety of a healthcare organization in terms of its talent screening but also helps the facility avoid legal liabilities. To provide support to healthcare Compliance departments, PreCheck offers its exclusion and sanction screening service, SanctionCheck, which produces actionable reports and ensures employers avoid Civil Monetary Penalties. In addition, to ascertain staff credentials are valid, updated, and compliant, PreCheck also provides license verification and ongoing monitoring services. Using a proprietary healthcare license management system, LicenseManager Pro, PreCheck provides a continuous post-hire primary source verification of licenses, certifications, and registrations. With PreCheck’s License Manager Pro in place, healthcare providers can stay ahead of accreditation requirements and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) directives. PreCheck’s suite of solutions is designed to effectively solve compliance challenges for healthcare employers.
Can you provide us a sneak-peak as to what lies ahead for your firm?
