We verify employee healthcare licenses everyday directly from the source and document
results. Our reports are guaranteed to be accurate and easy-to-read.

healthcare employers. Thus EverCheck can be considered a Primary Source for license
The Joint Commission Elements of Performance for HR.1.20 3 states:
An external organization (for example, a credentials verification organization [CVO])
may be used to collect credentials information.
Memo from The Joint Commission written to the VHA in October 2008:
Regarding the use of CE Broker for primary source verification, I am aware of this
process and it is acceptable. I am actually in the process of writing something
for the surveyors so that they understand that there does not need to be a piece
of paper in each personnel file.
The license verification process satisfies standards set by The Joint Commission as the
license is verified with the primary source (state licensing bodies) and provides
documentation in the form of a history trail that leads back to the primary source
data. The primary source data available via the Internet routinely takes one of
these two forms:
- A state data file that has been stored in the system in its
- One-by-one licensee website lookup results
This system continually performs license status verification without manual intervention
yet proves the verification for each license was made from the original source and
processed in a timely manner.
