Per diem clinicians help healthcare organizations maintain quality patient care by filling staffing gaps that occur when there’s an unexpected influx of patients, clinicians are out sick or on vacation, or any other situation when a facility may be short staffed.
To help both clinicians and healthcare organizations quickly find, book or fill shifts that match the clinicians’ availability with organizations’ immediate needs, a new mobile app recently launched by Nursefinders, an AMN Healthcare company. AMN Hub is available for use by per diem clinicians nationwide.
AMN Hub allows nurses and allied professionals such as physical therapists and occupational therapists quickly search hundreds of jobs by location and specialty, book multiple shifts that match their qualifications and availability, and receive instantaneous shift confirmation. Clinicians can access opportunities at a variety of facilities from their mobile phones by searching per diem shifts in the area and facility where they wish to work. Then, they click the accept button. Once the shift is confirmed, it’s directly loaded onto their mobile calendar.
In its first few months, AMN Hub filled more than 30,000 per diem shifts with approximately 1,500 per diem nurses currently using the app. AMN Hub is constantly updated with new shift opportunities, and the fastest shift acceptance went from a hospital entering an order to a clinician booking it within 22 seconds. The app is currently linked to about 1,400 healthcare facilities in the country, but that number is expected to grow. AMN recruiters are available to help clinicians with questions about the app and its features.
Automated solutions in temporary staffing management are improving both efficiency and quality in patient care helping healthcare organizations quickly fill workforce gaps with quality clinicians. AMN Hub is only the latest in innovative platforms and processes that will improve both the per diem clinician’s experience and organization’s standard of care.
AMN Hub can be downloaded from Android and Apple mobile app sites.
