Evercheck is a web-based service designed to meet the Primary Source license verification requirements established by the Joint Commission. The system automatically verifies each licensed employee every day and creates a permanent history of status changes on secure servers. It is the ideal complement to human resources and credentialing departments. Get important up-to-date information into the hands of those who need it most.
The Joint Commission requires hospitals to verify employee license statuses with the “Primary Source.” Licensed healthcare professionals must – at all times – have a current, valid license to work. So not only must hospitals verify licensure for each employee on an ongoing basis, the hospital must prove they performed the verification when prompted during a Joint Commission Survey.
What Counts as Primary Source?
The Joint Commission Elements of Performance for HR.1.20 3 states:
1) It is acceptable to verify current licensure, certification, or registration with the Primary Source via a secure electronic communication or by telephone if this verification is documented.
2) A primary source of information may designate another agency to communicate
credentials information. The designated agency can then be used as a primary source.
3) An external organization (for example, a credentials verification organization [CVO]) may be used to collect credentials information.
Evercheck fulfills the requirements of all three.
