We're Integrating Checkr Technology to Change the Way Healthcare Organizations Manage Background Screenings and Staffing!

Published 2018-10-22

Workpath and Checkr, the leading provider of modern and compliant background checks, have partnered with the goal of fundamentally changing the way healthcare organizations manage their background screening and staffing needs. Leveraging Checkr’s artificial intelligence in its background technology, Workpath will increase the transparency, speed, data insights, and accuracy for its healthcare partners.

The new partnership works like this:

  1. Workpath is a technology platform that helps healthcare organizations distribute work opportunities to their employees and third party networks.
  2. Workpath will integrate Checkr technology into its HIPAA platform this fall to improve the way healthcare organizations coordinate the best teams, dispatch the right team members, address their compliance requirements, and ultimately improve care.
  3. The Workpath platform will intelligently match the most qualified heatlhcare labor based on rules the Workpath customer defines — such as availability, location, certifications, ratings, and more. To help facilitate the perfect match, quick and accurate background checks by Checkr, from within the Workpath platform, will ensure healthcare organizations are prepared to deliver the best care at all times. The cost effective background checks will include a National Criminal Search, Sex Offender Registry, Social Security Number Trace, and Global Watchlist. Workpath customers will have the ability to customize which type of check they’d like to deploy (Basic, Standard, Pro, and DMV) and the status of the background check will be displayed in the user’s profile on the platform.

Workpath’s labor management platform fully integrates with existing systems and electronic health records such as Allscripts, Epic, and Cerner. It is currently used by health systems, diagnostic laboratories, home health agencies, phlebotomy labor providers, insurance examiners, nursing organizations, and other healthcare leaders to seamlessly schedule work opportunities. In addition, the Workpath platform is used by healthcare organizations to dispatch labor to patient’s homes, schedule daily shifts and on-call shifts at facilities, staff events, and fill open shifts.

Checkr and Workpath integration is another important step to improve care, team efficiency, logistics, and compliance within the entire healthcare industry. By offering Checkr integration, Workpath joins the ranks of Allstate, Lyft, Uber, Thumbtack, Zenefits, Warby Parker, Hot Topic and thousands of others who rely on Checkr’s leading background check platform to support hiring, contracting, and labor management needs.
