Moonlighting and locums tenens staffing agencies help healthcare facilities address provider shortages, reduce worker burnout, and lower operating costs. The combination of these benefits allows healthcare facilities to stress less and focus more on the quality of patient care.
But with a hyper-local staffing method, a moonlighting and locum tenens company can benefit healthcare facilities even more.
For instance, by using a local staffing model, OnCall Solutions consistently saves healthcare organizations 25 - 40% compared to other locum tenens staffing agencies.
But how exactly do local locums and moonlighters save healthcare facilities money, and what other benefits do a local model offer? Here are three keys to why local locum tenens staffing agencies help healthcare facilities the most.
Relocation costs for out-of-town locums and moonlighting staff can be significant, even for short-term moonlighting locums jobs. These plane fare and room costs can significantly cut into the resources of healthcare facilities, especially when administrators are overseeing already tight budgets.
Local moonlighting and locum tenens staffing agencies minimize these expenses by identifying qualified physicians and clinicians nearby. These qualified healthcare providers can cover shifts with far fewer costs associated with relocation, allowing significant savings to healthcare facilities.
Local healthcare providers are more familiar with a healthcare facility’s community, and as such, they often provide unique and essential care.
Being more familiar with a patient community allows healthcare providers to be more aware of a particular region's social, economic, and environmental conditions—some of which may even play a valuable role in diagnoses and appropriate treatment. Additionally, that familiarity can help lead to a stronger sense of shared community and commitment.
That increased quality of care can result in shorter lengths of stay, improved efficiency, and reduced operating costs.
Healthcare administrators know firsthand how a healthcare facility’s time and resources can be lost due to charting errors and omissions—and how they can seriously impact the quality of care.
