MIDDLEBURG HEIGHTS, OHIO (August 3, 2011) – Corporate Screening, a leader in the background screening industry, is pleased to announce its collaboration with Medicat Services, LLC, the leading provider of EHR and practice management for campus student health centers. Through this partnership, the next evolution of VerifyStudents – Corporate Screening’s online background screening and compliance resource for health science schools and students – has arrived. Combining fully compliant background checks, paperless drug screening, and now dynamic immunization tracking capabilities, the enhanced VerifyStudents platform is an essential tool for faculty and administrators of clinical training programs.
“Since the inception of VerifyStudents, we have seen how much time and effort goes into managing immunization records and tracking data for students pursing healthcare careers,” said Greg Dubecky, president of Corporate Screening. “We knew that there had to be a better way to tackle the task of verifying whose immunizations are current, what immunizations may be needed and accurately timing “series” immunizations for potentially thousands of students.” ImmuniTrax launched to help ease this administrative burden for schools. In its initial release, the system automated what was traditionally a very manual process. Now, as the next edition of the service debuts through this newly formed Medicat partnership, the program becomes even more dynamic for both students and program administrators. “We are very excited to bring Medicat’s technology to the VerifyStudents platform,” added Dubecky.
For many years, Medicat has been a leading provider of healthcare information technology for student health centers. Medicat’s Total Solution shares many of the same goals as ImmuniTrax in eliminating paper forms, streamlining workflow, saving significant staff time, improving safety and empowering students. Combined with outstanding client service, the integration of Medicat’s industry-leading technology within the VerifyStudents platform provides an outstanding opportunity for those who participate in the student immunization tracking process. “We are pleased to extend Medicat’s technology in providing valuable services to clinical programs by partnering with Corporate Screening and VerifyStudents,” said Stacy Kottman, President and CEO of Medicat, LLC. “This partnership brings many benefits for students and administrators.”
Among these benefits, program administrators will be able to view secure digital images of all student forms, track student compliance, send secure messages to individuals and groups of students, automate compliance rules to evaluate student progress, automatically compute when immunizations are due in a series, review system-stored expiration dates for waivers and immunizations, and download reports to track student progress and approval status. For students, complying with their clinical site requirements couldn’t be easier. The ImmuniTrax system allows them to access a secure online portal to review health requirements, download personalized forms and checklists to share with medical providers, securely enter personal health information and submit supporting documentation, communicate with program administrators through a secure message center, track submission status and download up-to-date records of submitted compliance information.
