Medicare EXCLUSION(OIG) search
IMI can provide information on companies and individuals that are excluded from Medicare, Medicaid and Federal Agency programs.
IMI can perform a civil background search of cases involving the subject at both the State and Federal level. These cases can involve, for example, rental disputes, contract disputes, employment disputes, etc.
This background search encompasses the repository maintained by the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) that stores the names of the individuals and companies who have been designated by the government as being possibly related to terrorism.
– Average Turnaround Time: 1-2 business days.
FDA DEBARTMENT search
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issues a list of companies and individuals who are barred from working with the FDA. This search is often used in the Pharmaceutical Industry.
The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) provides a list of individuals that are considered Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) and Blocked Persons. People on this list are considered to be terrorists, international narcotics traffickers, those engaged in activities related to weapons of mass destruction, and other threats to the national security, foreign policy or economy of the United States.
FACIS ® search
Frequently used in the medical and care facility fields, the FACIS search (Fraud and Abuse Control Information System) meets the federal government’s requirements as outlined in the Office of Inspector General (OIG) Compliance Program Guidance.
SPECIAL BACKGROUND SEARCH OPTIONS FOR UNIQUE NEEDS
IMI Data Search partners with businesses and recruiters to access and verify difficult-to-access information. This is especially important for organizations hiring for high-risk positions with mandatory legislated background checks, like education and healthcare. Clients turn to us when they need trustworthy, reliable intelligence and verification without sacrificing speed or efficiency along the way.
WHO USES A SPECIALTY BACKGROUND SEARCH?
Businesses, agencies, organizations and government offices all rely on IMI Data for Specialty Background Search and deep-scan solutions. We serve nearly every industry and every level of business, from entry-level employees to venture capitalists and CEOs. Certain highly-regulated industries turn to IMI Data more often than others due to an inherently higher need for screening services. Our most frequent flyers often operate within these industries:
- Care facilities
Because the full list of industries we serve is extensive, this list is in no way exhaustive. IMI Data Search can work with nearly any request for information, provided the request is legal and you have consent.
WHAT’S THE RISK?
Inaccurate or non-existent verification within high-risk industries is extremely harmful, both to businesses and the clients they serve. It takes just one bad hire or mischosen client to create chaos. IMI Data’s Specialty Background Search options eliminate the potential of hiring or working with someone who can harm your organization and the people you serve.
But is failing to screen candidates really so risky? Research tells us the answer is yes. Lost money, publicity scandals, and stolen insider information are just a few of the ways bad hires can cause harm. In high-risk industries like healthcare, education, and law enforcement, the potential fallout of a bad hiring decision often isn’t just lost time or money — it’s personal harm, injury, or even death.
Specialty Searches exist to ensure that the wrong individuals don’t gain access to information or vulnerable people. A government office who hires someone on the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) Blocked Persons list may be hiring a spy or terrorist. A pharmaceutical company who hires researchers without checking for FDA debarment may lose their license to research or be fined. Situations like these can be devastating on both a localized and nationwide scale.
Exact requirements vary industry to industry, but one fact is always true: a Specialty Background Check will reduce the risk of serious harm and liability all across the board.
