We know how valuable the relationship is between an association and its members and we feel privileged that CAHF is putting their reputation behind ShiftWise
Portland, OR (PRWEB) June 14, 2011
ShiftWise, the nation's leading provider of end-to-end contingent workforce management solutions, has partnered with the California Association of Health Facilities (CAHF) to deliver leading edge Software as a Service (SaaS) to California healthcare providers. This partnership between ShiftWise and CAHF will bring comprehensive software solutions and services for contingent labor management to more than 1,400 member facilities.
“Given the labor demographics in the United States and California in particular, our member facilities face the constant challenge of finding enough highly skilled clinical labor,” said CAHF Regional Director Joe Diaz. “We are providing a benefit to both members and patients by providing a resource to assist short-staffed facilities to bridge the gap and easily access a large pool of prequalified supplemental labor resources.”
“ShiftWise incorporates existing internal resource pools with contracted registry and staffing agency resources allowing our members to schedule and manage all of their available resources in a single web-based application.”
For the past 7 years, ShiftWise has made it easier for healthcare facilities to procure and manage qualified staff. By utilizing ShiftWise, an organization’s executive leadership is provided with greater visibility into contingent labor operations. This staffing resource provided by ShiftWise can then be instrumental in bringing down costs, improving quality and gaining greater Joint Commission compliance.
“By offering ShiftWise’s highly respected automated compliance verification technology, management has more tools than ever to make sure that skillful staffing decisions are made in real time related to cost, quality, compliance and performance,” said Diaz.
“And with reimbursements moving in the direction of being tied to patient satisfaction, now more than ever, our member hospitals are looking for technology solutions that ensure adequate staffing levels and compliant staff at the best possible cost.”
“ShiftWise partnerships with other healthcare industry associations have achieved significant results. These achievements will now be leveraged to gain similar if not better outcomes for CAHF and its members.” said Steve Schwartz, CEO of ShiftWise.
“We know how valuable the relationship is between an association and its members and we feel privileged that CAHF is putting their reputation behind ShiftWise,” said Schwartz. “As such, we have made enhancements in certain areas that their members really appreciate.”
