Industry Leading Search Logic
Our searching and matching-logic systems are some of the best in the business. We watch for common tricks or methods used by those trying to slip through the cracks or commit fraud.
Our partners are our first priority! We deliver the highest level of service and work to ensure that our partners are educated, supported, and heard.
We collect board action and sanction information for all healthcare license types. These includes Medical Doctors, Mental Health Professionals, Ambulance Drivers, Pharmacists, Registered Nurses, and much more. We use this data to help our partners make informed decisions about who they hire or otherwise work with. We focus on timely, accurate information that is actionable and verifiable. Our partners can search this data through our online portal or our API. We make doing business simple.
Hundereds of boards accross the United States have to take action on occasion against licensed professionals. Some fo these actions are minor offenses such as a fine for failing to comply with a renewal or continuing eduction timeline. Other offenses are major and may impact the professional's license status and include provisions or stipulations their employer needs to be aware of.
We do the work to collect all this data so our partners can make decissions and be aware of any conditions that may come with a given professional. We can also monitor the professional so that our partners are apprised of any issues during employement or contract.
We collect federal and state exclusion data. We help our partners ensure their providers are not excluded from participation in government healthcare programs. We help reduce fraud, waste, and abuse in these programs and give our partners peace of mind. This includes compliance with the OIG's (Office of Inspector General) and CMS's (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services) guidelines and rules.
The federal goverment and most states publish lists of individuals who are excluded from participation in their programs. Many of these exclusions are reciprocal by other governing bodies, meaning that exclusion in one state may mean exclusion federally and in other states also.
Our exclusion monitoring solution also meets or exceeds the CMS requirements for exclusion checking.

We have a streamlined process for verifying licenses and/or certifications. We help our partners ensure that the right license or certificate is held by all of their healthcare providers. We always verify these licenses from the primary source. We do not look at stale or out-of-date databases.
Many of our sources are automated. We work with boards and state agencies to ensure considerate and appropriate use of their verification sites.Request a Demo!
Partner datasets and rosters (employees or contractors) can be enrolled in our monitoring system. Anytime a potential issue is found, we alert our partners so they can be aware and take timely action, if needed. Our partners are not required to re-run rosters and data sets, once enrolled, we automatically keep them monitored. Changes, additions or deletions can be made at any time. We provide advanced reporting in our online portal so our partners can stay ahead of things and prove compliance to auditors or programs.
We offer verification services to qualify potential hits. As so many boards and agencies report limited information, an additional research process called verification is often needed to determine a definitive match of the provider with the potential adverse record or hit. Our team of researchers is trained in this process and has ruled in or out hundreds of thousands of potential matches. We also offer verification consulting services to partners who desire to establish and train their own verification teams.
We are committed to quality processes and standards. We have been certified by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for the following items:
- Certification in Medical Board Sanctions
- Certification in Medicare/Medicaid Sanctions
- Certification in Ongoing Monitoring of Sanctions
- Certification in Verification of Licensure
- Certification in DEA
We are also certified by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) for the 27001:2013 standard to ensure the highest standards of information security and reliability.
