Do you have 100% transparency to audit who’s in your facility at any given moment?

Manual processes and siloed data expose you to unnecessary risk

Without tested and proven vendor policies and credentialing practices that flex with your organization’s unique needs, it's tough to check every box for compliant, risk-averse healthcare identity and access management.

Compliance risks lead to negative safety and revenue repercussions

Vendors and suppliers—whether on-site, virtual, or hybrid—are an essential part of healthcare operations and delivery. However, healthcare providers are liable for employing or contracting with an OIG-excluded person or entity—risking fines of $10,000 per item or service in violation. 

Can you identify and manage the critical risks surrounding quality care, compliance, reimbursement, value-based purchasing, and most of all, safety?

Access management strategies for all non-employees

Connecting the right, verified people at the right moment can mitigate penalties, save time, improve outcomes, and ultimately impact lives.

Credentials monitoring and custom access levels give you control over your access management strategy. Quick reports help you protect your physicians’ time, stay compliant, and put safety first. With Access, you can manage credentials and check-ins for vendors, medical sales representatives, volunteers…everyone.

Remain audit ready with user-friendly, customizable dashboards that give you the data you need instantly. Easily review critical information, including which vendors are on-site, who may be out of compliance, and details on visit history for an audit trail that’s etched in stone.
Credentialing for others that isn’t an afterthought
Compliance requirements aren’t just for reps. Our general credentialing dashboard gives you complete visibility into compliance statuses and data across all credentialed populations, including students and contractors.

Visitor management that protects your facility
Give clerical staff or volunteers the tools to quickly check in visitors via personal ID, previous visitor search, or manually to collect the information that’s most important to your organization. When combined with vendor credentialing, you can immediately flag vendors attempting to check in through a visitor management terminal and re-route them appropriately for maximum compliance.
