Re: Health Care Worker Registry access via Web Portal Account
The Health Care Worker Background Check Act and rules require that all health care employers and CNA training programs governed by this Act to have access to the web-based Heath Care Worker Registry.
To complete this registration, two things are required in the following order:
1. Fingerprints are taken by Accurate Biometric's specialized technicians and immediately transmitted to the Illinois State Police. The fingerprint results then go from the Illinois State Police to Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH). IDPH will notify the PRA of the facility for which the employee is being fingerprinted for via email as well as update the IDPH worker registry.
