Are you paying market rates for Locums? Or are you overpaying? If you are negotiating rates with agencies individually and without the benefit of a competitive process you are most likely overpaying. The reality is that most health systems do not do a great job ensuring that they are competitive in the marketplace and not being overcharged for fees and conversions.
The pandemic has dramatically altered the relationship between price and demand related to healthcare staffing. Concurrently, health systems are facing mounting financial pressures and limited resources, preventing the ability to conduct the necessary and objective market rate analysis. This is where HWL excels, providing a vendor-neutral model that achieves competitive sourcing and rate negotiation while also offering full transparency into contingent labor costs. As mass vaccination sites continue to roll out nationwide, now is the time to explore vendor-neutral managed service providers (MSPs) and move away from supplier-driven MSPs that prioritize their own margin preservation.
Vendor Management Systems (VMS) streamline and standardize the management of contingent workers across the healthcare organization to reduce costs and increase time saved. Whether it’s Local or Travel, Contract or Per Diem, Clinical or Non-Clinical, a robust VMS will deliver heightened visibility, efficiency, and compliance into your operations. Learn how Lahey Hospital and Medical Center leveraged HWL VMS technology to consolidate contract hiring and monitor contingent workforce performance across the organization.
