CLEVELAND, Ohio—OnShift®, a leader in human capital management software for post-acute care and senior living, has announced the launch of a new initiative that will provide integrated access to third-party caregiver marketplaces from within OnShift’s award-winning workforce management suite. Powered by a next-generation human capital management platform, providers will be able to efficiently meet critical staffing needs with on-demand caregivers when internal resources are unavailable to fill open shifts.
“The lack of available caregivers is crippling the senior care industry. Growing workforce shortages, high turnover rates and massive employee burnout have created nothing short of a crisis,” stated Mark Woodka, CEO of OnShift. “We are making a major investment to address this challenge by combining a large network of caregiver marketplaces with cutting-edge technology to fill critical shifts efficiently and cost effectively.”
For effective contingent staff management, OnShift will extend its rules-based open shift automation engine to first prioritize the utilization of community staff members and internal staffing pools. By embedding automated best practice workflows into the solution, providers will be able to streamline processes, minimize excess labor costs, and mitigate the risk of being short-staffed.
“OnShift is committed to best serve the staffing needs of the industry,” stated Steve Haynes, EVP of corporate development at OnShift. “We are aggressively building a robust network of caregiver marketplaces by partnering with organizations that share OnShift’s values and our desire to help providers compete in the new healthcare economy.”
OnShift is currently in pilot with select customers and caregiver marketplaces.Caregiver marketplaces interested in partnering with OnShift on this initiative may click here. Healthcare providers looking to be updated on the progress of this initiative may click here.
