Hotline Service Center

Stay compliant with federal regulations by offering a confidential employee hotline. CRC’s Hotline Service Center can provide your employees with an anonymous way of reporting fraud, waste, abuse, unethical behavior, and other violations. Your workforce members can have confidence in their reporting because they know the information, and their identities, will remain confidential, and you will have improved tools to run your compliance program more successfully. To learn more, visit the Hotline Service Center page and register to attend a free online demo.

Sanction Screening Services

Simplify your in-house sanction screening efforts by using our automated S3 tool.  Don’t have the manpower to handle sanction screening internally? Outsource to CRC and let us handle the entire sanction screening process for you. Both approaches will help you identify possible and/or confirmed matches to names on excluded databases while allowing you to better manage your sanctions screening process. Keeping track of sanctioned individuals and entities may seem overwhelming for healthcare organizations of any size, but with our screening services you can let our S3 Tool do the work. To learn more, visit the Sanction Screening Services page and register to attend one of our free online demos.
