Staffing has always been the biggest hurdle in the healthcare industry, with the need for reliable, qualified staff being hard to find - yet mission critical to your ability to deliver quality care and drive revenue.
But the eye-popping 255% increase in open nursing positions in the last year and increased need to rely on agency staff has uncovered what is quickly becoming the long-term care industry's second biggest hurdle: efficient and effective agency management.
With the hassle of paperwork, maddening number of administrative tasks and money wasted on costly human errors, the inability to streamline and automate agency management is, without dispute, getting in the way of facilities ability to deliver quality care and degrading their five-star ratings.
The problem is obvious – if long-term care administrators can’t fill shifts with nursing staff, they can’t deliver the highest possible quality care, nor are they able to grow their facility, extending their care to their greater communities for decades to come.
That’s why SmartLinx developed the first staffing portal; A disruptive technology that will break down boundaries, reduce silos, and enable long-term care facilities to advance care by combining agency and staffing management into one platform.
