Types of Background Checks
Criminal Database Checks
Criminal Background Check – We combine database searches and human research for comprehensive results. We have access to many different sources, including federal, national, and state criminal databases, do-not-fly lists, sex offender registries and more. Criminal records are thoroughly reviewed at their source, typically at county courthouses. To achieve this, we conduct in-person court repository searches in each U.S. jurisdiction.

Background Screening Services for Drivers and DOT
Driver and DOT Background Checks – If your company hires safety-sensitive drivers, Motor Vehicle Report (MVR) background checks are critical. They ensure that staff members who represent your business on the roadways have valid driver’s licenses and safe driving records. You can order standalone MVRs or DOT drug testing, or Health Street can perform this for you as part of our comprehensive screening services.

Background Check Services for Healthcare Professionals
Healthcare Background Checks – To verify that health-related professionals have clean records and are authorized to do business in the U.S., we offer healthcare background check services such as FACIS (Fraud Abuse Control Information System), OFAC (U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control) sanctions and OIG (Office of the Inspector General) sanctions.

This ensures that your remote, work from home employees are properly identified.

About Employment Background Screening
Why Use Health Street for Your Employment Background Check Services
With our rigorous employee background check services, we protect your business and save you from spending time and money on less than desirable employees. You’ll learn if the person you’re considering has a criminal record. We remove any irrelevant information from criminal databases that you might not be allowed to view or act on. In doing so, we provide you with only essential and actionable information.
We can also confirm that the experience and credentials that employees claim on their resumes are all true and verifiable via our Employment Background Screening. This usually includes education verifications, employment history and reference checks. When required, motor vehicle records are reviewed. Our employment background checks are fast, accurate and all-inclusive. By thoroughly vetting every job candidate, we protect you from negligent hiring. As an employer, you can be held liable for your staff’s actions, if it is determined by a court that you should have known that they would be a risk to fellow employees or customers.
Our background check services are backed by more than 10 years of experience, close monitoring of changing laws, and a deep reservoir of resources and talent. Generic “cookie-cutter” online criminal database background checks are no match for first hand expertise.
Our personalized customer service differentiates us from our competition. Health Street’s call center advises small business owners on the best background checks for your company’s needs, industry requirements and state regulations. We’ll customize a package that’s exactly what you need—no more and no less. Results from background checks can sometimes be confusing. We ensure that you understand the reports so you can make informed hiring decisions.
Health Street believes in a tailored approach to background checks. We customize our screening packages for your company’s unique requirements, such as RFPs and other contracts that dictate what should or should not be included.
Since all our staff is U.S.-based, we can take a more hands-on approach. When our background check services require direct phone communication, such as higher education verification and reference checks, these calls will be made by our local staff. They are experts at nuance and will provide you with accurate assessments of your job applicants.
While thoroughness and accuracy are top priorities, our background check services are also fast, and we take pride in our relatively short turnaround. Longstanding relationships with state courthouses across the country helps expedite the screening process. Our court runners visit courthouses daily and sometimes several times a day. This ensures the fastest results for our court repository searches (state/county criminal searches), which are included in our Platinum and Court Record Packages.
State-of-the-art technology brings together all background check data from various sources, for all your candidates and employees, and puts it in one convenient location. Our remote driver license scanning for ID verification is integrated with e-sign document waivers, and it’s all stored in our secure, mobile-friendly online portal. You and your team will always have full insight into who you’re hiring, and you can quickly and easily access signed waivers on file.
