Risk Mitigation for Staffing Agencies
Healthcare staffing agencies play an important role in connecting qualified talent to the hospitals, healthcare providers, and senior living facilities that need them most. But, unlike staffing in other industries, the results of a poor placement can potentially be deadly and have legal ramifications. Understanding this, healthcare staffing agencies can put numerous safeguards in place to avoid such risks.
Credential validation, clinical competency assessments, and skills checklists all help recruiters do their jobs more efficiently without sacrificing quality or opening their agencies to risk. However, unless you have the right technology powering these capabilities, tasks like validating credentials or assessing important clinical competencies become time-consuming and inefficient.
When this happens, recruiters can feel overwhelmed and start taking shortcuts that could put the agency at risk. Chances are, your qualified talent risk mitigation challenge is characterized by these underlying conditions:
Lack of credential validation, clinical competency assessment, or skillset verification technology
Spending too much time matching talent to reqs with too much room for error
An inability to get qualified talent through onboarding efficiently, leading to incomplete paperwork and potential legal issues
