In a demanding industry like healthcare, fluctuating staff needs and turnover are common challenges. Many hospitals turn to managed services to outsource certain processes and functions to agency staff—and increase efficiencies and control labor spend.

With a Managed Service Provider (MSP), the hospital still has direct oversight of the organization being managed, while the MSP is responsible for the delivery and management of staff. With a large number of agencies to choose from, having one point of contact is an ideal way to address staffing challenges without getting overwhelmed.

Join IHA Strategic Partner FocusOne Solutions, LLC, for a free webinar to learn how using supplemental staffing can aid in recruitment efforts, provide insights on best practices to improve patient outcomes and reduce staffing costs. As an MSP, FocusOne acts as an extension of hospital HR departments to centralize functions and eliminate outside stressors, adapting to their clients’ needs every step of the way.
