Helping healthcare facilities control vendor and contractor access and activity

NEW YORK, Dec. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Green Security and Yankee Alliance have entered into an agreement designating Green Security as the preferred provider of vendor and contractor credentialing and background investigation services to Yankee Alliance's 12,600 plus healthcare members across the country. This relationship will leverage Green Security's advanced onsite technologies to help these members control, manage and monitor vendor and contractor access across their facility.

Craig Shoukimas, Vice President of Contracting at Yankee Alliance, commented, "We have been looking for an advanced security solution to fix the current, unacceptable screening practices. We found that Green Security is an organization that is uniquely familiar with credentialing and background investigation for healthcare organizations of all sizes. As such, Green Security is well positioned to ensure that the risk of outsider presence does not expose our members, and their patients, to dangerous situations. In our efforts to create the most protected and safe environment for healthcare services, this is a big win."

Green Security President Shawn Fitzgibbons explains: "While staff at hospitals are carefully screened, the hospital remains a high-risk environment where vendor, contractor and visitor access is less controlled, leaving the hospital vulnerable to security threats and ultimately liability and safety concerns. We have listened to the concerns at hospitals about this and developed a novel solution to help hospitals easily take back control of vendor and visitor presence in the hospital."

Green Security has lately signed up hospital after hospital to provide the simple, inexpensive and intuitive security solution it provides. Through the announced agreement, the Yankee Alliance membership gains access to Green Security's security solution that lowers institutional liability while providing tangible management tools for controlling access to sensitive clinical areas – putting patients and staff at ease.
