    Vendor Neutral Staffing Solutions Using Healthcare Vendor Management

     

    Healthcare providers traditionally grapple with staffing issues in the form of unfilled shifts and vacant positions, which they try to rectify using redundant staffing efforts and inefficient manual scheduling procedures. The cost of leaving a shift unfilled, or deploying the wrong combination of internal, float pool and supplemental staff can add up quickly. The concerns attached to credential and compliance issues are considerable; billing, administrative tasks and reporting eat up time better spent on patient care.

    To answer these concerns, AMN Healthcare vendor management systems deliver time-saving, cost-effective healthcare staffing solutions that improve quality of care.

    Save Time

    With an automated process, you don’t have to reach out to each vendor when a staff need arises. The VMS broadcasts the vacancy to all vendors and returns a list of vetted options. A VMS automates time card approval and consolidates invoices. Less time spent on hiring, staffing and invoicing means more time spent on patient care.
