• Take control of staffing issues with a healthcare Vendor Management System (VMS) from AMN Healthcare that administers the procurement of nursing, allied, locum, IT and non-clinical professionals. From scheduling staff to billing reports, a healthcare VMS can be customized to each enterprise and provide solutions to healthcare staffing problems.

    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.

    Control Costs

    A vendor neutral solution favors cost-competitive vendors. Vendor tiering can be used to negotiate better rates. Reduced administrative labor hours creates more efficient use of resources. Program transparency provides tremendous detail about spending, keeping you on budget when making financial decisions.
