A medical sanctions check provides insight into a healthcare professional’s background, identifying any penalties, suspensions, or disciplinary actions against them. Regulatory guidelines from the U.S. Office of the Inspector General (OIG) mandate that healthcare organizations can’t employ sanctioned vendors or individuals, meaning that anyone who employs medical practitioners, such as physicians and nurses, must conduct regular sanctions checks to avoid being penalized. Violating federal sanctions can result in hefty fines, suspensions, or even possible jail time, not to mention put a patient’s health or safety at risk.

Healthcare organizations must protect themselves and their patients against sanctioned practitioners. Unfortunately, legacy screening providers often provide outdated, burdensome, and expensive compliance solutions that can put healthcare organizations at risk. That’s why Vital4 created an efficient and accurate way to screen employees against medical sanctions that ensures your organization meets the most stringent U.S. healthcare regulations.
