Edge Information Management, Inc. Announces New Electronic Fingerprint Service for The Florida Health Care Industry.

In response to the new law in Florida mandating that long term health care providers use electronic fingerprints, Edge Information Management, Inc. has updated their WebScreenSM system to allow for easy online ordering and scheduling.

Melbourne, FL, August 3rd 2010–Edge Information Management, Inc., a prominent provider of employment screening solutions, is pleased to announce the addition of another critical screening tool to its long list of background checking options. Through its proprietary internet application, WebScreenSM, Edge is now offering clients an easy, online way of ordering and scheduling electronic LiveScan fingerprints.

Edge’s service is designed to help healthcare facilities comply with a new Florida law, which became effective August 1st. This new law requires health care providers in Florida to screen all new applicants and facility contractors using an electronic fingerprinting method prior to being employed. Edge has partnered with multiple FDLE approved LiveScan vendors in order to offer an expansive network of LiveScan fingerprint sites throughout Florida. Edge’s network of FDLE LiveScan vendors will be available to the 300 plus health care providers who currently use Edge to meet their employment screening needs.

Joe Langford, president of Edge, commented “Our health care clients strive to provide the best care for their residents and patients and are always looking for ways to improve efficiencies within their facilities. They now have an option to stop spending time hunting, initiating, tracking and monitoring a fingerprinting process that can easily be managed by Edge. Administrators prefer dedicating that time to resident and patient so their expertise is fully utilized. As we expand our network through our valued partners, this process will continue to become easier and faster for our clients, without sacrificing the high quality that we all demand.”
