• Maximizing Cost Savings: The Benefits of Direct Sourcing Contingent Labor for Hospitals

    Health systems across the country continue to suffer from chronic staffing deficits which heavily stretch hospital resources. Facilities in rural and urban regions have had to rely on the contingent workforce to fill vacancies throughout their health systems.While contingent workers have been able to fill vital roles, the price of that labor has come at a high cost to facilities, many of which saw their operating costs triple as a result of dependence on such workforce. Many health systems have had no option but to secure travelers, regardless of the rising costs and limited transparency into market rates. While effective in filling vacancies, traditional staffing methods have yet to prove cost-efficient for hospitals. This factor alone has led to hospitals being tasked with finding creative and more cost-effective ways to staff their facilities.
