The Joint Commission requires that healthcare companies include medical and nursing students in their background screening policies. To assist both the healthcare field and the medical education community maintain compliance, InfoMart partners with MediScreen.
MediScreen connects hospitals, schools, and students through an easy-to-use, secure portal. The rules-based platform guides students as they order their background checks and drug tests. The system automatically populates the services required by the students’ specific clinical programs, preventing erroneous services or unnecessary back-and-forth.
Students complete an online application and schedule a drug test via the MediScreen site. We obtain electronic consent to conduct the background check and to report the results to the school or hospital. The student pays for the services through the portal at the time of the order.
Schools and hospitals enter MediScreen through the retrieval and tracking side of the portal, where they can view the results of their clinical placements’ background checks and drug testing. Program administrators indicate whether a student is accepted for onsite placement, and the MediScreen portal stores the screening and drug testing results to assist in future compliance audits.
Don’t rely on second-rate companies to conduct background checks for you. Contact InfoMart to learn more about our intensive and thorough process, and to get started today.
