Proven Healthcare Technologies to Solve Today’s Workforce Challenges

Healthcare organizations need effective, proven ways to control workforce costs in an ever-changing environment. And as they work to create robust, sustainable talent ecosystems, they need a technology backbone that ensures their workforce is managed and deployed as efficiently as possible.

AMN Healthcare has three proprietary technology platforms that will improve your scheduling processes, increase access to staff, lower talent costs, and provide better caregiver experience.


Enterprise Scheduling Technology

Smart Square is our enterprise scheduling tool that uses a proprietary predictive model to forecast staffing needs months in advance. Our model is so accurate that 98% of predictions made 60 days in advance are expected to staff within one person of the actual requirement.

Its predictive scheduling capabilities empower organizations to:

  • Create better staff schedules with fewer canceled shifts and floating.
  • Improve budgeting and resource planning.
  • Fill open shifts faster with its patented open shift methodology.

Embedded workforce management functionality, like enterprise transparency tools and a suite of business intelligence dashboards, are coupled with more than 25 years of experience helping organizations refine and improve workflows. In fact, Smart Square and our long-term, consultative approach have received independent recognition from a leading healthcare IT research firm.


ShiftWise Vendor Management Solution

ShiftWise, our Vendor Management Solution (VMS), allows you to manage all your contingent talent spend in one place and in a competitive environment that controls rates. You can manage the whole talent lifecycle from a single platform, centralizing internal and external staffing resources, including subcontractors, to control hundreds of different labor specializations. Highly customizable, ShiftWise reduced labor spend by 20% for an East Coast academic medical system.

ShiftWise is:

  • Efficient, reducing the time spent on hiring, staffing, and invoicing.
  • Quality-focused, ensuring candidates across all staffing agency partners and departments are compliant, reliable, and credentialed.
  • Cost effective, leveraging predictive analytics to forecast billing rates and usage.


Self-Service Mobile Application

ShiftWise is also integrated with AMN Passport, the leading mobile app to manage permanent, travel, per diem, gig workers, and internal float pools. AMN Passport has more than 200,000 downloads and a 4.7-star rating from more than 16,000 reviews on the Apple App Store.

With AMN Passport, all resource pool members and agency staff – internal and external – can search and pick up shifts with permissions and approval processes. It also supports timekeeping and communications to drive efficiency and engagement.
