FACIS Level 3 Background Check | FACIS Screening & Search

FACIS (Fraud and Abuse Control Information Systems)

FACIS is a search of a vast database containing adverse actions of individuals and entities sanctioned in the healthcare field. This includes information on disciplinary actions ranging from exclusions and debarments to letters of reprimand and probation. This search offers three search options ranging from the minimum federal requirements to a search inclusive of more than 800 sources in 50 states.

FACIS Level 1 Search

The Fraud and Abuse Control Information System (FACIS) Level 1 – Search conducts a search of the sanction information as taken by the Office of Inspector General (OIG), the General Services Administration (GSA) and other federal agencies. The information reported in this level meets the government’s minimum requirements for sanction screening as se forth in the OIG’s Compliance Program Guidance. This service also includes a search of FDA lists containing the names of clinical investigators who have been disqualified or “totally restricted” by the FDA from conducting studies designed to develop evidence to support the safety and effectiveness of investigational drugs, biological products and medical devices. The FDA may disqualify a clinical investigator if that person has repeatedly or deliberately failed to comply with applicable regulatory requirements, or has submitted false information to the sponsor or, if applicable, to the FDA.
