Abstract

The Michigan Workforce Background Check (MWBC) system combine data streams from various sources and online registries showing findings of abuse, neglect, misappropriation of property and health care fraud. Employers use MWBC to have an initial determination of the suitability of person for employment in Long-Term Care facility. In this paper, we demonstrate how management of information and the optimization of the human interface positively impact the patient safety and workflow, which is essential for effective public health management.
