ALPHARETTA, Ga., Nov. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Healthcare Workforce Logistics (HWL), the nation's innovator and leader in vendor-neutral healthcare workforce solutions, has been engaged to manage a Locums Managed Services Program, or MSP, for the Arizona Healthcare and Hospital Association Affiliated Partners Program (AzHHA APP).
The new program that launches December 1, 2018 allows AzHHA members to take advantage of HWL's extensive locums agency network to meet their temporary physician and advance practice staffing needs. HWL's program enables AzHHA members to seamlessly expand the number of locums agencies they work with; simplifies the ordering, screening and on-boarding process for members; and reduces costs associated with contracting for locums by creating a competitive marketplace.
"We are excited to be supporting AzHHA APP's initiative to improve the process and reduce the costs of sourcing locum physicians for its members," said Jonathan Ward, president of Healthcare Workforce Logistics. "This agreement enables all members, but especially those rural members who face locum staffing challenges, to source the right locum physician at a market rate to deliver patient care in their communities."
John Koeneke, vice president of business development for the Arizona Healthcare and Hospital Association, stated that "The AzHHA Affiliated Partners Program understands the unique needs of our hospital members as the demand for quality healthcare increases, especially as we see a growing and aging population. In our quest to make Arizona the healthiest state in the nation, we are partnering with services that will assist in providing quality care to the people, patients and communities across our state."
AzHHA is Arizona's statewide association for those organizations and individuals devoted to collectively building better healthcare and health for the patients, people and communities of Arizona. Founded in 1939, AzHHA's objective is to improve healthcare through Better Care, Better Health and Lower Costs with the ultimate goal of making Arizona the healthiest state in the nation.
