Frequently Asked Questions

 About Background Screening Through Advantage Students

What do you mean when you say affiliated hospital/school?

Affiliated hospitals and schools are those who have already set up an account in Advantage Students. In order for schools and hospitals to conveniently send and/or receive results, they need to become an affiliated school. Hospitals can easily invite schools to create an account with a custom link. Need to send results to a hospital that isn’t affiliated? Consider sending them some resources about the benefits of Advantage Students.

I’m a student. Do I have to order a new background check for every hospital I apply to?

Nope! With Advantage Students, you only need to order one background check, then you can send results digitally to any affiliated hospital or school that you need to. Make sure to check that a certain hospital doesn’t have added requirements, though. Our customer support team will guide you through the process, getting you the services you need to succeed.

How is Advantage Students different from a normal pre-employment background check through InfoMart?

Advantage Students is specifically designed to tell hospitals what they need to know before approving medical students for clinicals. Our compliance team built custom packages based on medical student background check requirements. Plus, our student self-pay model means a low-cost solution with no contracts and fast implementation for hospitals. Advantage Students is also one-of-a-kind for its secure storage of student documents.

How does Advantage Students keep students’ information secure?

Our team of security experts is dedicated to keeping data secure, which has landed us on Security 500 for over 8 years. Quarterly penetration testing, daily data backup at a secure offsite location, and masked personal information are some of many measures we take to protect sensitive data and documents. 

About InfoMart’s Technology

How do I check results? How do I know when results are ready?

Schools are able to see students’ background checks processing in real-time. Hospitals and students will receive a confirmation message when a background check has started and a notification whenever results are ready. This will take them right to the results in our digital platform.

I’m a school or hospital. How do I get students to sign up for Advantage Students?

When you create an account in Advantage Students, we’ll send you a custom invite link to send to students. You can also opt to add a portal on your website with your organization’s branding that will take them directly to their designated sign-up page. They can sign up whether they’re at the computer or on the go!
