ShiftWise and the Hospital Association of Southern California (HASC) Announce Partnership
Partnership will Provide Workforce Management Solution to Association Members
PORTLAND, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ShiftWise, the nation's leading provider of end-to-end workforce solutions, today announced a partnership with the Hospital Association of Southern California (HASC) to deliver best-of-breed Software as a Service (SaaS) to Southern California hospitals. Through its partnership with ShiftWise, HASC will offer comprehensive software solutions and services for managing contingent labor to its expansive list of more than 150 hospitals.
“The journey to find a workforce solution partner for HASC member hospitals so that they can more effectively manage contingent labor usage clearly led us to ShiftWise,” said Scott Twomey, senior vice president of HASC. “Our member hospitals requested a solution to their workforce needs and, after an exhaustive review of what was available in the market, we are pleased to recommend the ShiftWise solution to our constituents.”
ShiftWise’s Web-based end-to-end workforce solution enables hospitals to effortlessly manage their internal and external contingent labor usage. Hospitals ultimately benefit from unmatched control over their staffing process as the service consolidates ordering, license and credential management, billing and self-scheduling into a single, easy-to-use online service. ShiftWise is currently used in over 750 hospitals nationally.
“Prior to using ShiftWise, we spent a great deal of time and effort handling paperwork to schedule healthcare workers, maintaining Joint Commission compliance and reporting to our internal finance department,” said Lynn Kirman, associate vice president of Glendale Adventist Medical Center. “ShiftWise has simplified each of these processes, increasing our efficiency and reducing our overall cost of operations. With ShiftWise, we can now quickly access all of the nurses from the top staffing agencies in the area to better manage our own internal resources, streamline our operations and improve quality of care.”
“We are honored to be selected by HASC to deliver end-to-end workforce solutions to their member hospitals,” said Steve Schwartz, CEO of ShiftWise. “Our commitment is to streamline the time and resource allocation for procuring and managing contingent healthcare staff for each and every HASC member hospital. At the end of the day, we will measure success by your satisfaction with our performance.”
