Medallion + Checkr: Streamlining background checks in healthcare

Imagine a dedicated nurse named Jessica, excited to start her new position at a leading healthcare facility. She's passed her interviews and completed her training. Now, she eagerly awaits her background check results. 

But days turn into weeks. The healthcare organization she hopes to join struggles with disjointed systems, causing delays. 

This scenario, all too common in healthcare today, underscores a pressing challenge: How can credentials of professionals like Jessica be verified promptly without sacrificing thoroughness?

This is where the transformative Medallion and Checkr partnership comes into play. 

The urgent need for trust and efficiency in healthcare

In today’s healthcare environment, there’s an essential balance between trust and operational efficiency. Both medical institutions and patients base their relationships on the credibility of care providers. 

However, existing processes for vetting these providers can be fragmented. This results in inefficiencies running and storing provider background checks. 

A study by Merritt Hawkins shows a one-day delay in provider onboarding can cost a medical group more than $10,122. Such inefficiencies not only stretch resources but also prolong onboarding times, impacting service delivery and patient trust.

Medallion's integration with Checkr: A unified approach

Amid financial pressures and growing demands in healthcare, the Medallion and Checkr partnership sets a new industry standard. This collaboration addresses the significant provider onboarding delays that can compromise patient care, revenue and overburdened operations teams who are already asked to "do more with less."

  • Seamlessly run and store provider background checks directly within Medallion.
  • Fully automate provider data management.
