The Sterling Advantage

Full spectrum coverage

From background checks, drug testing, and verifications, to monitoring and credentialing, we deliver automated solutions customized to your needs and requirements.

Industry expertise and support

Our dedicated team of healthcare account managers and fulfillment specialists proactively ensures you’re always ahead of the compliance curve. We provide strategic insights and best practices that stretch beyond traditional support.

Automatic OIG and CMS Exclusions Monitoring

Is the recommended minimum monthly sanctions and exclusions screening frequent enough? Ongoing daily monitoring allows healthcare organizations to proactively identify sanctioned or excluded providers faster to reduce exposure and mitigate the risk of potential fines and other penalties.

Healthcare Information Tracker

Monitoring changes in federal, state, and local healthcare background screening requirements can be time consuming, which is why our partnership with a leading labor law firm is so valuable. Together, we’ve developed a proprietary Healthcare Information Tracker with modules that allow your Account Manager to stay abreast of the latest compliance changes that relate to you.

Mobile candidate hub

Healthcare is always on the move, so our mobile-enabled candidate portal allows candidates to complete their entire background check directly on their mobile phones.
