Technology partnership combines integrated risk management with excluded provider screening
Published on April 3, 2018
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — April 3, 2018 – Lockpath, a leading provider of integrated risk management solutions, today announced a new partnership with Kinney Services, a leading excluded provider screening company. The partnership aims to ease the compliance and risk management burden of exclusions and sanctions list screening, especially in the healthcare industry, while strengthening third-party risk management programs. This partnership will include an integration of Kinney Services’ Kchecks, an excluded provider screening software solution, within Lockpath’s Keylight Platform, a governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) and integrated risk management solution. With the combination of Kchecks’ efficient screening and Keylight’s reporting and context into the organization’s overall compliance program and risk posture, organizations will be able to ensure compliance and avoid penalties. The integration also allows for better management of the risks associated with doing business with sanctioned entities, including privacy violations, fraud, waste, and abuse.
“We are excited to introduce Kinney Services as our newest technology integration partner,” said Chris Caldwell, Lockpath CEO and founder. “Kchecks is well respected in the healthcare industry and complements our existing third-party risk management solution. Our customers will find the integration beneficial as they continue to grow their integrated risk management programs.”
Organizations will benefit from Kcheck’s screening capabilities within the Keylight Platform, as the partnership will enable stronger continuous monitoring of business associates. Customers will be able to combine Kchecks screening matches with existing business associate profiles in Keylight for advanced visibility and context into third-party risk and potential compliance issues.
Kchecks allows users to search federal and state databases at the same time, conducts monthly testing for exclusions, allows for the recording of the action taken on the matches found, and retains the history of the match resolution for use in any federal or state audit. Kchecks includes searches of the following lists:
- The Office of Inspector General’s List of Excluded Individuals/Entities (LEIE).
- The General Services Administration’s System for Award Management (SAM) and Excluded Parties List System (EPLS).
- The Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) Sanctions List.
- More than 25 various state files.
“We look forward to a successful partnership with Lockpath that will support the exclusion management needs of our shared clients,” said Scott Steinhardt, Vice President at Kinney Services Inc. “We are pleased that we’ll be adding the strength, expertise and reputation of our high-quality exclusion screening solution to Lockpath’s Keylight Platform.”
