License Verification Tool | CNO -?Chief Nursing Officer
In efforts to maintain compliance with various government regulations, organizations must look for ways to optimize their Human Resources (HR) process. Validating employee and contractor licenses, certifications and qualifications is an important part of this process. Primary Source Verification (PSV) plays an essential role in ensuring that organizational employees are up to date, and that those representing the organization in the field are qualified to do so.The process of verifying all of this information becomes more complex the larger the organization, but automation can help to streamline the process. By leveraging pre-built workflows, a Chief Nursing Officer (CNO) can stay ahead of their regulatory compliance, and monitor employee credentials in one system of record. What Exactly is Primary Source Verification?Primary source verification is a process wherein an organization seeks to verify the credentials of an individual by directly contacting the primary source of the information. This is different from self-reported or secondary source verification. There are many places where this primary source information can be found; professional licensing or regulatory boards, educational institutes, or employers (in the case of job experience). Primary source verification can help to ensure that candidates do not misrepresent themselves or falsify credentials. Benefits of AutomationAutomating the primary source verification process can save time, as well as reduce the potential of human error or misrepresentation in verifying credentials. Automation removes the need for manual intervention, meaning that all data is timely and accurate. Organizations can use automation to quickly and easily track and manage licenses and certifications with primary source verification.
