Houston, Texas - February 10, 2014

PreCheck, Inc., an employment and background screening firm specializing in the healthcare industry, and health record management leader Sentry MD recently announced a new partnership to streamline the student immunization record management process for allied health and nursing programs at higher education institutions. Program administrators now have access to an immunization tracking service that is integrated with PreCheck’s student background screening suite, StudentCheck, as a result of the new partnership.

“Schools and allied health program administrators are burdened with processing student health records,” said Jack Esselen, President and Chief Executive Officer at Sentry MD. “For allied health educators, health record management is just part of meeting the requirements for clinical rotations. That’s why we’ve partnered with PreCheck to offer them a streamlined solution for student screening.”

With over 20 years serving the healthcare industry’s background screening needs, PreCheck has customer relationships with thousands of healthcare organizations. The company supplies allied health programs at colleges and universities with student background screening, drug testing and immunization tracking services.

“The Sentry MD health record management solution has been integrated with our StudentCheck background and drug screening service to provide schools with a streamlined process for all of their student screening needs,” added Zach Daigle, Chief Operating Officer and President at PreCheck. “We are excited to partner with Sentry MD to bring additional value to nursing and allied health educators.”

Sentry MD’s student immunization tracking service processes student health and immunization records, compiling information according to each school’s requirements. “Unlike other solutions that only provide administrators the tools to manage students’ records, Sentry MD manages all the student paperwork and does the compliance work for each allied health program. We are very excited to offer our solution to PreCheck’s customers,” said Jack Esselen.

“Through our partnership with Sentry MD, we look forward to providing our nursing and allied health education clients with the tools they need to ensure their students meet clinical site requirements,” said Zach Daigle. “We feel great about providing more value to the educators of tomorrow’s healthcare workforce.”
