Fraud and Abuse Control Information System Searches

Posted in News Articles on 03/01/2007

BackTrack has access to the Fraud and Abuse Control Information System (FACIS) databases, which identify sanctioned individuals and entities in the healthcare field and allows organizations to make risk management decisions. Information for this database is obtained from the Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General (DHHS-OIG) and state licensing agencies and contains information on excluded individuals and other adverse actions taken against providers.  Using this search helps identify providers reported by both federal and state agencies and decreases your organization’s risks of government sanctions and/or monetary penalties from civil suits.  There are three tiers of search available, depending on how much involvement with patient care your employee may have.
