Love, founder of HireNurses.com and the first nurse to be featured on Ted.com, will help IntelyCare implement innovative ways to better the lives of the nursing professionals it employs
QUINCY, MA – August 24, 2021 – IntelyCare, the largest staffing platform for nursing professionals seeking per-diem positions, today announced that it has added Rebecca Love as chief clinical officer. The founder of HireNurses.com, Love is regarded as a pioneer in developing technology solutions that benefit nursing professionals. She is also one of the country’s most prominent advocates for nurses, with her 2018 TEDx Talk marking the first address by a nurse to be featured on the main TED.com platform.
At IntelyCare, Love will act as a company evangelist for the nursing professionals it employs, giving them a louder voice by identifying the issues they face and advocating for ways to overcome them. She will also oversee clinical operations and compliance.
“Too many nurses are suffering from burnout and leaving the profession every day. I think we’ve dealt with nurses for too long in an antiquated way, and we need to empower them so they can own their career,” Love said. “If we don’t figure out how to retain nurses, allow them more flexibility with their schedules, and bring them back to the bedside, we’ll see people who need 24/7 care go without.”
Studies show that nurses are exiting the profession at a rapid rate, and the pandemic dramatically aggravated the problem. The country’s shortage of registered nurses is expected to soon reach 1.1 million. The causes of the exodus have been traced to too many long shifts, lack of control over schedules, and a general feeling that nurses’ needs are being ignored. Love said she joined IntelyCare because of the company leadership’s dedication to partnering with nurses.
“IntelyCare is spearheading the change to put nurses first,” said Love. “I think when the company started it was based on building a platform that met the demands of healthcare, largely nursing homes. And from that, they became experts in really understanding how nurses work, how shifts work, and how scheduling works. I believe IntelyCare will initiate a revolutionary change in the way nurses engage with healthcare systems.”
IntelyCare’s platform uses machine learning algorithms to match its employees, known as IntelyPros, with open shifts at the facilities it partners with. At a time when the healthcare industry at large is overlooking the needs of its nurses, IntelyCare gives them unprecedented control over their schedules. IntelyPros also receive retirement benefits, health insurance, holiday and overtime pay, access to childcare benefits, and 25% higher weekly wages on average. For facilities, the staffing-and-scheduling platform provides the ability to automatically optimize and add staff, leading to the highest shift-fill rate in the industry.
Love’s passion has always centered around ways to empower the nursing profession, with the aim of building, scaling, and strengthening nursing’s impact on the future of healthcare. She is President of the Society of Nurse Scientists, Innovators, Entrepreneurs & Leaders (SONSIEL), a 501-3 Nonprofit founded by leading nurses in the U.S., U.K., and Canada. In partnership with Johnson & Johnson and Microsoft, SONSIEL organizes NurseHack4Health.org, the world’s largest nursing hackathon. Love also started the nation’s first nurse innovation and entrepreneurship program at the School of Nursing at Northeastern University, is the co-author of two international best-selling books (The Nurses Guide to Innovation and The Rebel Nurse Handbook), and is the host of the Outcomes Rocket Nursing podcast. She will lean on all of her experience to help lead IntelyCare in its mission to solve the workforce shortage by putting the needs of nurses first.
“Rebecca Love is one of the most articulate, imaginative, and straight-talking thought leaders in healthcare and nursing today,” said David Coppins, IntelyCare’s CEO and co-founder. “Not only is she a nurse, the daughter of a nurse, and a former nursing instructor, but she also co-founded and sold the tech company HireNurses.com. She knows from firsthand experience the role software solutions can play in tackling the most daunting healthcare challenges. We couldn’t be happier that Rebecca has joined our team and will bring her tech know-how and understanding of the nursing profession to IntelyCare.”
IntelyCare is the largest digital nurse staffing platform in the United States. Through advanced machine learning and behavioral science, IntelyCare’s easy-to-use app matches nursing professionals with open assignments at its post-acute partners. In doing so, IntelyCare is leading the work evolution for nurses, empowering them with the freedom to choose when, where, and how often they work, for the wages and benefits they deserve.

IntelyCare Announces Partnership With DailyPay to Provide Nursing Professionals Faster Access to Earned Pay
Providing daily access to earned income from shifts is just the latest way IntelyCare is empowering nursing professionals to enjoy flexibility and take control in their careers.
QUINCY, MA – August 17, 2021 – IntelyCare, the leading intelligent workforce management solution for post-acute facilities, has teamed up with DailyPay to enable nursing professionals to access their earned income on-demand. The partnership gives IntelyCare employees, known as IntelyPros, more financial flexibility during this challenging economic period for healthcare workers.
With DailyPay, IntelyPros can now elect to retrieve a portion of their pay on the same day that they work their shifts. Since the new benefit launched, 70% of eligible IntelyPros have enrolled. Those using DailyPay have seen their earned income from a shift transferred directly into their bank accounts. The instant access to their earnings makes it easier for these IntelyPros to pay for essentials, such as food, transportation, childcare, and other expenses that directly impact their everyday lives.
“The first time I completed my shift with DailyPay, about 15 minutes later, I got a notification that my DailyPay Balance went up,” said Brianna Douglas, a certified nursing assistant from Lynn, MA. “I cashed out and took my kids to a nice little dinner and we had fun. With a job like mine, those things make a difference.”
Providing faster access to income is just the latest example of how IntelyCare is breaking the traditional confines for the typically overworked and underpaid nursing community. As new COVID-19 variants begin to again threaten public health, nurses are fleeing the profession in record numbers and the country could soon suffer a shortage of 1.1 million nurses. Therefore, to keep nursing professionals happy, healthy, and by the bedside, it is imperative that the specific causes of this exodus be addressed.
“As a country, we can no longer afford to turn our backs on nurses. Fewer nurses mean more deaths and that’s simply a fact,” said David Coppins, CEO, and co-founder of IntelyCare. “Nursing is inordinately taxing and stressful. To effectively do their jobs and avoid burning out, nurses need facilities to provide appropriate nurse-to-patient ratios, as well as flexibility in scheduling. And nurses must be compensated appropriately.”
At the height of the COVID-19 crisis last year, nurses dramatically demonstrated their value when, at great risk to their own lives, they labored long hours caring for the sick. Nonetheless, for many nurses, the profession remains synonymous with overwork, low pay, too few benefits, and a general feeling that the healthcare system exploits them. It’s precisely here – where the healthcare sector is weakest at supporting nurses – that IntelyCare contributes most.
“I love IntelyCare,” said Douglas. “I get to set my own hours, my own days. If I need to leave early or come in a little later, I just let IntelyCare know and they get it all straightened out for me. It’s amazing. I really don’t have to talk to anybody to get my shifts. I just do everything through the app and it shows me all the information I need, including the rate.”
DailyPay is the industry-leading technology platform that is architecting a new financial system for the future. Starting with pay, DailyPay is rewriting the invisible rules of money through its innovative technology platform. During the pandemic, the demand for DailyPay grew exponentially as companies realized the positive impact this technology offers employees and employers alike. According to recent research, when employers offer an on-demand pay benefit to staff, they hire 52% faster and retain workers up to 73% longer.
“As we continue to make our way through this pandemic, we rely on the frontline workers IntelyCare provides to keep us safe and healthy,” said Jeanniey Walden, DailyPay chief innovation and marketing officer. “Working with IntelyCare to support these frontline heroes so they feel respected, trusted, and valued is a true honor.”
DailyPay, powered by its industry-leading technology platform, is on a mission to build a new financial system. Partnering with America’s best-in-class employers, including Dollar Tree, Berkshire Hathaway, and Adecco, DailyPay is the recognized gold-standard in on-demand pay.
