Insight Global Health and MedCerts Team Up to Tackle Healthcare Staffing Shortages

The Partnership

Insight Global Health is a leading healthcare staffing agency that provides sustainable staffing solutions for hospitals across the United States. MedCerts is a content training provider that focuses on creating best-in-class training programs for technicians working in Allied Health settings. Together, they have teamed up to create a more effective way for students to connect with jobs that already exist.

The Problem

The healthcare industry is facing a significant workforce shortage. Leaders aren't being bold enough when it comes to staffing and coming up with creative solutions for the future. This shortage is only going to escalate in the future, with a growing demand for healthcare services.

The Solution

MedCerts and Insight Global have come together to tackle the healthcare staffing shortage crisis by providing a transparent pathway for learners to become employed in the healthcare industry. MedCerts provides certification programs that give employers trust and credibility, while Insight Global helps to recruit people who have a passion and appetite to enter the profession of healthcare. Upskilling is an investment because it allows employers to fill their staffing needs and gives students the opportunity to access training that can lead to future career paths.

The Importance of Upskilling

Talent acquisition pipelines and upskilling are both important for employers to consider when hiring new employees. Upskilling can help current team members make more money, increase retention, and revolutionize the way healthcare is staffed in the future. Learning and development programs should be tailored to both new and existing employees in order to ensure a positive ROI. Insight Global Health and MedCerts' partnership provides a solution for healthcare staffing by upskilling their employees, investing in a transparent pathway for learners, and developing best-in-class training programs. Together, they are contributing to a healthcare workforce that is adaptable, agile, and sustainable.
