Nearly half of the long-term care nursing workforce is looking to permanently move to a flexible role. To attract and retain more nursing staff, you must provide flexible staffing, but traditional nursing float pool management is often inefficient, stressful, and cumbersome. It involves updating spreadsheets and spending hours on the phone trying to fill shifts at the last minute. In the end, you simply cross your fingers and hope that someone will show up.
IntelyCare’s Nursing Float Pool Management platform provides an innovative solution to this problem, putting the power in your hands to manage your own pool of providers without the inefficiency and stress you’ve come to expect from nursing float pool management.
Provide the Flexibility that Nurses Want with a Nursing Float Pool
With IntelyCare’s Nursing Float Pool Management platform, you can create and manage a float pool of your own, eliminating silos by establishing one central resource to staff your departments and facilities. Approaching staffing in this way will help you take back control of your costs and maintain a level of predictability in your scheduling.
Our software’s predictive algorithms prioritize open shifts based on their difficulty to fill and suggest the optimal staff to fill them. Our intelligent incentives help you stay within your budget by making suggestions without exceeding a configured limit and optimizing for maximum fill. On top of that, the platform gives you a complete view of your staffing gaps and allows for seamless communication with available providers.
By utilizing your own nursing float pool, you can achieve an ideal staffing mix that allows you to maintain census, streamline per diem usage, and keep your full-time staff happy.
