Healthcare workforce management technology leader continues to see strong results in 2010
HARTFORD, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- API Healthcare, the leader in healthcare-specific workforce management solutions today announced that 35 provider and contingent staffing clients have gone live with API Healthcare solutions. The steady number of clients completing implementations demonstrates a successful year for the company.
A sampling of the healthcare provider clients that recently went live on API Healthcare solutions includes: Overlake Hospital Medical Center in Bellevue, WA; Spectrum Health in Grand Rapids, MI; Methodist Hospital of Southern California in Arcadia, CA; Bartlett Regional Hospital in Juneau, AK; Kadlec Health System in Richland, WA and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, NH.
“For years we used manual processes for scheduling and payroll, which was not only cumbersome but inefficient,” said Denis C. Ibey, director of corporate accounting, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. “With the help of API Healthcare and their healthcare industry specific solutions we are better prepared to optimize our talent in a future which includes a greater demand for high-quality care and more positive patient outcomes.”
Smaller budgets and limited labor pools are also starting to impact contingent staffing agencies in a positive way as more providers look towards contingent staffing as a cost-efficient solution to serve the impending patient demands placed on their organizations. A portion of the healthcare staffing agencies that are now live with API Healthcare solutions include: Dream Nurse Travel in Newfield, NY; AHS Pharmstat in Edmond, OK and TG Healthcare in Omaha, NE.
“Our investment over the past year to innovate new solutions and streamline our implementation process is generating positive outcomes across the board,” said J.P. Fingado, president and chief executive officer, API Healthcare. “Institutions across the country are turning to API Healthcare to address their labor challenges by implementing our unique clinically-based solutions for workforce optimization in a timely and under-budget manner. We are pleased to be driving outcomes focused on keeping costs low, ensuring compliance and improving the quality of patient care.”
The past year marks the most significant shift in the healthcare industry in decades, most notably with the passage of major healthcare reform legislation which provides healthcare insurance for 32 million additional Americans within the next four years. As changes resulting from reform are coming quickly, healthcare providers are realizing the value and importance in focusing on workforce talent optimization to proactively manage upcoming challenges tied to reform.
