RICHMOND, Va., Oct. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Workpath, a healthcare technology company that helps organizations distribute work opportunities to their employees and third party networks, today announced a partnership with Checkr, the leading provider of modern and compliant background checks, designed to fundamentally change the way healthcare organizations manage their background screening and staffing needs. Leveraging Checkr's artificial intelligence-powered background technology, Workpath will increase the transparency, speed, data insights, and accuracy for its healthcare partners.
"Workpath will integrate Checkr technology into our HIPAA platform to improve the way healthcare organizations coordinate the best teams, dispatch the right team members, address their compliance requirements, and ultimately improve care," said Eddie Peloke, CEO of Workpath.
Workpath's labor management platform fully integrates with existing systems and electronic health records such as Allscripts, Epic, and Cerner. It is currently used by health systems, diagnostic laboratories, home health agencies, phlebotomy labor providers, insurance examiners, nursing organizations, and other healthcare leaders to seamlessly schedule work opportunities. In addition, the Workpath platform is used by healthcare organizations to dispatch labor to patients' homes, schedule daily shifts and on-call shifts at facilities, staff events, and fill open shifts.
"In healthcare, more than any other industry, it's critical to centralize your labor and track all appointments and shifts in one place. By using Workpath's platform, healthcare organizations can intelligently match the most qualified labor based on rules they define such as availability, location, certifications, ratings, and more. To help facilitate the perfect match, quick and accurate background checks are crucial to ensure healthcare organizations are prepared to deliver the best care at all times."
The Checkr partnership will allow Workpath's healthcare partners to seamlessly request background checks from within the Workpath platform. The new feature offers healthcare organizations the ability to quickly and easily perform background checks for their entire network of employees and vendors at a discounted rate. The partnership will provide Workpath customers the ability to customize which type of check they'd like to deploy (three levels of criminal packages and Motor Vehicle Records) and the status of the background check will be displayed in the user's profile on the platform. With secure results easily at hand, Workpath's healthcare customers will be able to access and manage all aspects of the background check report within the platform.
The Checkr and Workpath integration is another important step to improve care, team efficiency, logistics, and compliance within the entire healthcare industry. Workpath will join the ranks of Allstate, Lyft, Uber, Zenefits, Warby Parker, Hot Topic and thousands of others who rely on Checkr's leading background check platform to support hiring, contracting, and labor management needs.
Workpath builds intelligent technologies that help healthcare organizations and other specialized industries send work opportunities to their employees and vendors with ease. The HIPAA-compliant platform schedules, dispatches, and manages teams of all sizes. Workpath helps healthcare organizations simplify and connect. Become more digital, yet more human. www.workpath.co
