Sunil Kumar, CEO of DataFlow, talks to Omnia Health about how the 2.5% document forgery rate among healthcare applicants is a cause for serious concern considering they have the potential to be hired and treat the public.
The proportional nature of hiring means the increase in the number of healthcare job opportunities correlates with a surge in the number of fraudulent applications. Coupled with the fact that there has been an increase in professional migration with more and more people relocating for better opportunities with favourable financial returns, and the ideal environment for fraudulent applications has been created. This climate makes it risky for healthcare providers to hire at the size and scale needed to overcome existing workforce shortages.
