Local model. Tailored solutions. Lower costs.

Mission

To provide fair-minded locum tenens and other medical staffing services in partnership with both physicians and healthcare facilities—for a happier, high-quality workforce.

Vision

Using our commitment to shaping the future of the medical profession to build a better model of staffing that supports the needs of patients, facilities and clinicians – now and for the future.

Values

If we treat people right, good things will happen.

MEET OUR FOUNDER & CEO
Scott Shapiro MD, FACC
Dr. Scott Shapiro, a practicing cardiologist and one of the founders of OnCall Solutions, realized early in his journey to becoming a physician that you could either inherit the profession or shape it. He chose to shape it.

He became involved in advocating for physicians and patients while still in medical school. He was a board member for the Pennsylvania Medical Society and had multiple leadership positions in the American Medical Association before he had fully entered the profession. He continues to commit his time as a volunteer board member at the state and national level with the American Medical Association.

Being in his 30s, fresh out of medical school, with a young family, he started moonlighting in his third year of residency. As he worked for this locums company, he observed that the company treated physicians like widgets. They were a CV and credentials with little thought as to the needs of the facility or the physician. The locums company kept huge margins with practices he felt were unfair to both hospitals and physicians. He saw an opportunity for a better way to approach hospital medical staffing.

His experience and his volunteering to help shape the future of medicine at a state a national level proved to have benefits for OnCall, their hospitals, and their physicians. OnCall understands what the profession needs. Scott says the OnCall strategy is similar to that of hockey great Wayne Gretzky who said the key to success is to skate where the puck is going instead of where it is.

“We take some of our strategy from hockey legend Wayne Gretzky. Skate to where the puck is going, instead of where it is. First, we look to understand what’s impacting the industry… legislation, quality measures, accountability, financial challenges, and increasing costs… then we work to influence and shape the future by escalating the focus on value, cost, satisfaction, and quality patient care.
