By partnering with Daon Trusted Identity Services, Edge has increased their electronic fingerprint network to over 200 locations in Florida.

MELBOURNE, FL –Edge Information Management, Inc. (Edge), a prominent provider of employment screening services, has announced today their partnership with Daon Trusted Identity Services (DTIS), a leader in electronic fingerprint captures.

With this new partnership, Edge has increased their network of LiveScan fingerprint locations to over 200 in the state of Florida, allowing their health care clients, within the state, easy and convenient access to multiple sites. Since 2010, when the new electronic fingerprint law was passed in Florida for the health care industry, Edge has been diligently working to ensure the initial scheduling process for applicants is quick and easy, and that their electronic fingerprint sites are conveniently located. DTIS is an FBI and FDLE approved LiveScan vendor, and brings 80 Florida locations (and counting) into the Edge Preferred Network of collection sites.

Joe Langford, President of Edge, commented, “We are very pleased to add Daon Trusted Identity Services (DTIS) as a partner in our preferred network of LiveSan providers. This partnership comes at a time when many of our clients were asking for locations that allow for same-day collections. DTIS has been very responsive and intentional in providing the types of services needed for Edge clients to register, collect and finalize the fingerprinting process. We believe that listening and responding to our client’s needs is a great business rule, which ultimately helps everyone in the process: the applicant, the health care facility, the collection site, the Agency for Health Care Administration, and most importantly, the residents for whom this protective process is intended.”

The Florida law pertaining to electronic fingerprints went into effect on August 1st, 2010. It notably modified the background screening and hiring process for the health care companies in Florida. The law outlines that these companies will use electronic fingerprint scans prior to hiring a new employee, under chapter 408, Part II, Florida Statues (F.S.).
