Now, more than ever, it is imperative to screen Healthcare workers. It is important to hire someone who is of good moral character. Background Solutions Online Management can help your company do just that. By utilizing our ClearMed and ClearMed Plus Hiring Packages, we can help you find the right applicant for the job, allowing you to hire with confidence, protecting your most important assets: your reputation, your employees, and your patients.

Each ClearMed search utilizes the following search tools:

Instant Social Security Addresses & Verification (SSAVY)

The Social Security Trace checks the validity of an applicant's Social Security Number. If the number is valid, the trace will identify the year and state in which the number was issued. The Social Security Trace will alert you if the number has not been issued, if it was used in a previously filed death claim, or if it was used with any fraudulent activity. The trace also identifies AKA's that have been used and provides up to three (3) past addresses, which help in determining which counties we should search the applicant's criminal record.

Instant State Sexual Offender Registry

Per Megan’s Law, sexual offenders must register when they move. There are currently more than 550,000 registered sex offenders nationwide. Sexual offender registry searches are statewide searches of registered sex offender databases.

Criminal History Report

We perform searches of current records directly at local county, Superior, and Municipal courts. Criminal searches are available nationwide as well as in the U.S. territories and Canada. We recommend a search of all counties of residence and any AKA’s that are identified in an applicant's Social Security Address & Verification report. Using our network of researchers, we access the most current information available and report felony and misdemeanor convictions based on applicable federal and state law.

We do not use online or CD-ROM databases, which may be out of date and inaccurate. The FTC in a staff opinion letter stated that an employment screening service that uses stored data (which may be as much as 90 days old) does not comply with the Fair Credit Reporting Act Section 613(2). State Repositories are available in some states, but many provide partial or out-of-date information because they are not frequently updated. Except where the repository is updated daily, state repository searches should not replace county criminal searches.

FACIS Report/OIG Search

Required screening of all healthcare workers. FACIS reports on more then 50 healthcare professionals and agencies. FACIS reports information from approximately 800 state and federal agencies including the Office of Inspector General and the General Services Administration. It also includes the OFAC SDN list. This report allows organizations to make different risk management decisions depending on the individual or entity, FACIS® offers three levels of screening. The three levels vary in the depth of the sanction search provided.
  • Level 1 conducts a search of the sanction information as taken by the OIG, the GSA and other federal agencies. The information reported in this level meets the government's minimum requirements for sanction screening as set forth in the OIG's Compliance Program Guidance. Intended for low risk workers and contractors or those not involved with patients.
  • Level 2 combines the Level 1 search of the federal agencies with disciplinary action information from multiple agencies and one state of choice. Intended for medium risk workers and contractors such as administrators.
  • Level 3 is the most robust search option, allowing you to conduct a search of disciplinary actions taken by federal agencies as well as those taken by licensing and certification agencies in all 50 states. This is the most comprehensive search method available. Intended for high risk workers, contractors and those involved with direct patient care such as nurses, physical therapist and physicians.

State Repositories are available in some states, but many provide partial or out-of-date information because they are not frequently updated.
