Is SnapNurse the New Uber of Healthcare Staffing?
See how this on-demand platform is disrupting the nurse staffing business and helping to solve the global nurse shortage by utilizing the current workforce to its maximum extent and decreasing time to onboarding through its use of NurseToken, a blockchain solution created to facilitate and speed up the credentialing process.
What if qualified nurses were able to pick up extra shifts, work while traveling for extra cash, or make a difference where they know it’s needed?
Meet SnapNurse--the first healthcare platform to allow facilities to book pre-approved and credentialed nurses instantly through an app and that first to adopt blockchain technology.
“Nurses are one of the largest and most in-demand workforces in the world, but the process of approving and credentialing nurses is time-consuming and expensive, resulting in delays of getting the nurses to work at a hospital. By integrating the NurseToken blockchain platform, facilities can unlock a nurse’s credentials instantly and reduce the time and expense on onboarding,” said SnapNurse CEO Cherie Kloss.
The NurseToken blockchain technology will have three big benefits:
1. Nurses will no longer have to wait several weeks, sometimes can be up to three months, getting pre-credentialed to work at a new hospital system.
-- Nurses will go through one rigorous credentialing process and then carry their approval always at the ready in their “virtual wallet” to work at any hospital, at any time.
2. Hospitals will have access to a fraud-proof pool of talent.
-- Hospitals will be able to unlock and verify new nurses’ credentials using the blockchain’s innate safety and privacy features.
3. It will incentivize nurses and make the career path more appealing to the next generation.
-- Nurses will be paid more and can even receive bonuses directly to their “virtual wallet” when they’ve made a special impact.
SnapNurse is an on-demand technology platform that connects pre-credentialed nurses directly with healthcare facilities to fill empty shifts. Similar to other popular on-call applications, SnapNurse empowers nurses to make more money, create their own schedule and get paid after completing a shift. The disruptive tech platform is a favorite among hospitals and nurse managers for its ability to save time and money, increase contract talent pool, view profiles and provide ratings for available candidates. Launched in November 2017, the platform welcomes hundreds of new nurses daily and is available nationwide in areas with the largest nursing shortages. Always on the cutting-edge, SnapNurse is the first company that will apply blockchain software (nursetoken.io) for credentialing, allowing nurses to carry portable authorization credentialing passports for instant approval at new centers.
