Abstract

Our best practice approach to pre-employment Real-Time Screening (RTS) demonstrates how health information technology positively impacts organizational communication practices, which is essential for effective public health management. Using user-centered design methodologies has improved the effectiveness of the background check system in a complex organizational environment under challenging time constraints. Using cutting edge technology and a user-focused design process the research team has developed a system that allows users to seamlessly move highly-sensitive, complex information swiftly, efficiently and securely.
