Looking to offer your workforce an avenue to communicate their concerns and/or potential and actual violations anonymously? CRC specifically designed our Hotline Service Center solution to be an easy and efficient way for your workforce to feel comfortable reporting possible violations. Both our telephonic and web-based reporting systems provide your employees, vendors, physicians, contractors, volunteers, etc. with a safe, reputable way to voice their concerns, which could help stop compliance issues before they get too serious. Visit CRC’s Hotline Service Center page to learn about this cost-effective solution that can help your organization avoid potential whistleblower cases. We also encourage our clients to join us for one of our free online demos.

Sanction Screening Services

Simplify your in-house sanction screening efforts by using our automated S3 tool.  Don’t have the resources 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 exclusion 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.
