If you are, then you know that there are documents that need to be verified. These documents include education degrees, employment certificates, and healthcare practice licenses.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">But more importantly &#8211; why do you need to verify these documents?</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Around the world, people are getting caught using fake degrees from diploma mills and fabricated resumes in search of jobs abroad.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">In fact, the UAE is already <a href="http://filipinotimes.ae/top-stories/2016/08/11/filipinos-warned-against-using-forged-documents-to-visit-uae/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">warning against the use of fake documents</a> when applying for employment in any of the seven Emirates. So spare yourself the trouble by using primary source verification (PSV) to authenticate your documents.</span></p> <h2><b>What is PSV?</b></h2> <p>PSV is a background check that verifies documents directly from the issuing source, thus guaranteeing the optimal accuracy and integrity of the obtained information.</p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">This is where the DataFlow Group comes in.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The DataFlow Group uses&nbsp;PSV to protect an organization, as well as its patients, from being duped by fakes through exposure of fraudulent papers.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Check out the video below on How to Apply:</span></p> <figure class="wp-block-embed-youtube wp-block-embed is-type-video is-provider-youtube wp-embed-aspect-16-9 wp-has-aspect-ratio"><div class="wp-block-embed__wrapper"> <iframe title="How to Apply - The DataFlow Group" width="580" height="326" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/UBH_t0e6Wpc?feature=oembed" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div></figure> <ul><li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Any communication between the applicant and the original source is NOT PSV.</span></li><li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Original documents are not equivalent to primary sources.</span></li><li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Notarized documents are not verified sources.

Patients do not have the knowledge to assess the competence of health care professionals. Thus, the responsibility rests squarely on the shoulders of hospital leaders</em>.’</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Hospitals and other healthcare facilities are already taking precautions to get rid of the problem of fake hiring by using PSV.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">PSV helps healthcare institutions get the best medical staff. In turn, this hiring process helps them provide quality healthcare to their patients.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">For your own benefit, here&#8217;s why it&#8217;s critical that you are primary source verified.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">PSV:</span></p> <ul><li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">proves that you are a qualified professional</span></li><li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">helps you stand out from the applicant crowd </span></li><li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">protects you in foreign countries</span></li><li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">gives you trusted &#8220;branding&#8221; as you pursue your career abroad</span></li></ul> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">PSV removes all the fraudulent pretenses that would possibly harm healthcare institutions, applicants, and patients alike.
