How Do Healthcare Provider Organizations Benefit from Locum Tenens?

September 12, 2019/By Jeff Niles

Originally published May 2018. Updated on November 17, 2020.

The U.S. health sector has seen tremendous growth over the last century. Demand for medical providers is outpacing the supply so organizations are turning to provider staffing firms to fill the gaps. In fact, the healthcare staffing market is expected to hit $43.5 billion by 2025.

More and more healthcare provider organizations are turning to locum, or locum tenens to keep up with the increasing demands.

6 THINGS SUPPLIERS WANT IN A VMS/MSP AND WHY WE ARE LISTENING

6 THINGS SUPPLIERS WANT IN A VMS/MSP AND WHY WE ARE LISTENING

September 26, 2018/By Jeff Niles

When my colleagues and I formed HWL, there were a lot of spirited discussions around what constitutes a great VMS/MSP program. And yes, there were lots of different perspectives and opinions regarding the existing models in the marketplace, and about the functionality gaps that existed in available VMS systems. However, there was one area where there was universal agreement. Treat agencies with respect, listen, and be hyper focused on what is important to them. This may sound simple and obvious but having been in this business for over 20 years I constantly hear from suppliers that are frustrated with this or that MSP provider or VMS system because they feel like concerns aren’t heard and are treated like second class citizens. Having spent the first part of my career on the supplier side, I personally experienced this and remember that feeling. Not great.
