There is not end to what all human beings can do, and yet there continues to be shockingly little that we do better than growing on a consistent basis. This tendency to improve our horizons, no matter the situation, has really brought the world some huge milestones, with technology emerging as quite a major member of the group. The reason why we hold technology in such a high regard is, by and large, predicated upon its skill-set, which guided us towards a reality that nobody could have ever imagined otherwise. Nevertheless, if we look beyond the surface for one hot second, it will become abundantly clear how the whole runner was also very much inspired from the way we applied those skills across a real world environment. The latter component, in fact, did a lot to give the creation a spectrum-wide presence, and as a result, initiated a full-blown tech revolution. Of course, the next thing this revolution did was to scale up the human experience through some outright unique avenues, but even after achieving a feat so notable, technology will somehow continue to bring forth the right goods. The same has turned more and more evident in recent times, and assuming one new HRM-themed development ends up with the desired impact, it will only put that trend on a higher pedestal moving forward.
AMN Healthcare, the leader and innovator in total talent solutions including healthcare workforce technology, has officially announced the launch of its next-generation vendor management system (VMS) called ShiftWise Flex, which is designed to leverage state-of-the-art features and automation to help healthcare organizations create a financially sustainable and agile workforce. Understood to be the only vendor neutral platform that automates and streamlines the contingent labor management process for nursing, allied health, locums and non-clinical professionals, the stated VMS will offer you never-seen-before flexibility and control over your workforce, while simultaneously providing an ability to meet patient demand on time. But how will the whole value proposition look on more granular level? Well, for starters, ShiftWise Flex will hand us an uninterrupted access of far-reaching labor sourcing options. This includes activating labor sourcing options for internal float pool, direct hire aggregation, staffing agency management, and independent contractors, catering to both clinical and non-clinical talent requirements. Next up, we must talk about the system’s commitment towards offering a single integrated talent management platform that streamlines order, staffing, and compliance management, thus ensuring an optimized order-to-fill process. Backed up by Microsoft Azure, the SOCII Type 2 compliant ShiftWise Flex also comes decked up with an ability to use out-of-the-box API integrations and instigate automation and efficiency when integrating with healthcare organization’s existing systems. Then, we have the prospect of data-driven insights that are presented to users through intuitive interactive dashboards for better comprehension, and of course, better workforce-related decisions. Another detail worth a mention here would be how all these insights are going to be extended in real-time to keep your strategies and your evaluation of stuff like program metrics and supplier performance based on the latest information. We referred to evaluating supplier’s performance, but ShiftWise also takes care of the other side by promising an enhanced supplier experience. You see, the stated party can notably enjoy immediate access to self-reporting and analytics. Such a feature should go a long when it comes to helping the supplier compete in a more effective manner, as well as improve their general performance. Put that alongside the fact that suppliers can further bank upon API integrations to seamlessly install their own applicant tracking and payroll systems. The idea with this one is to achieve more productive workflows and accelerate speed-to-fill.
“We have been working tirelessly to push the boundaries of innovation, and today, we unveil a new era of healthcare workforce technology. With ShiftWise Flex, we have combined our longstanding proven technology with cutting-edge developments and reimagined configuration agility. Healthcare organizations can expect to optimize labor costs, access more talent and build an agile workforce to deliver incredible patient outcomes,” said Nishan Sivathasan, Division President of Workforce Technology at AMN Healthcare.
Rounding up the highlights is ShiftWise Flex’s integration with AMN Passport, which so happens to be the most downloaded clinician app of its kind. Basically, AMN Passport operates as an AI-driven talent matching engine that connects clinicians to work orders, offering clinician self-service and automated credentialing matches. By doing so, it not only conceives better speed-to-fill, but it also brings to the fore a higher level of cost efficiency.
