Vendor Management

Healthcare providers, for a multitude of reasons, will always have unfilled shifts and vacant positions. Traditionally, these unfilled shifts and vacant positions have been filled through chaotic, redundant staffing procedures, usually via numerous phone calls and inefficient manual scheduling processes.

When more than 60% of your entire operating budget is staffing related, it’s easy to understand that any inefficiencies in the process, or deploying the wrong mix of internal staff vs. float pool staff vs. supplemental (agency) staff, can quickly cost you millions. Add on the additional concerns of JCAHO compliance and credentials management for clinical staff, and the need for an easy-to-use, automated staffing solution becomes readily apparent.
