VeriScreen has been a leader in healthcare-related background checks for healthcare providers wanting high-quality background screening services. The consequences of bad background checks can be devastating. We take this part of our business very seriously and have partnered with the top in the industry. We don’t offer any lower level of service to save a few dollars. There are three levels of searches available and we have only ever used the highest level.
