The American Hospital Association Exclusively Endorses Staffing Vendor Management from ShiftWise

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 10, 2013

The American Hospital Association (AHA) today announced it has exclusively endorsed the Staffing Vendor Management system from ShiftWise. AHA Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of the AHA, awards the AHA Endorsement to products and services that support member hospitals and health care organizations to achieve operational excellence. The ShiftWise solution was selected for endorsement following a proprietary due diligence process that identified it as a leader in providing Web-based solutions to automate, streamline and simplify workforce vendor management processes.

Automating Vendor Management Processes for Increased Efficiency

To address system-wide staff shortages, many health care organizations rely on supplemental staff from a variety of resources including staffing agencies, float pools and independent contractors. Working with multiple vendors and resource pools to procure and manage temporary staff can be complex and time-consuming, often involving manual, paper-based processes.

“We recognize the operational challenges hospitals and other health care organizations face in managing their supplemental staffing needs,” said Anthony J. Burke, President and CEO of AHA Solutions. “After an extensive due diligence process, we are endorsing the system from ShiftWise for its documented effectiveness in streamlining staffing vendor management processes, and for its focus on both vendor management and serving the health care field.”

Through the Staffing Vendor Management system from ShiftWise, health care organizations can automate and standardize the procurement and management of flexible, temporary and contract labor to lower costs, improve quality and ensure compliance.

“We are honored that the American Hospital Association, with all its prestige as an advocate for hospitals across the U.S., has endorsed the ShiftWise Staffing Vendor Management system,” said Stephen C. Schwartz, CEO of ShiftWise. After months of scrutiny from the AHA due diligence process, it is a tremendous validation of the hard work that has produced a system so dedicated to helping clients accomplish their staffing objectives.”
