IntelyCare Sees Exceptional Momentum and Growth; Expands Leadership Team and Employee Base to Support Post-Acute Market and Nursing Professionals amid Pandemic

Leading Workforce Management Company Ranks No. 41 on Inc. 5000, Tops Charts as Fastest-Growing Company in Massachusetts

QUINCY, MA August 19, 2020 IntelyCare, the leading intelligent workforce management solution for post-acute facilities, today announced it has experienced rapidly escalating demand for staffing support at skilled nursing facilities, which has been further accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic. The company has also seen record growth and momentum in 2020, securing a ranking of No. 41 on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing companies in the U.S.

IntelyCare began the year with a record-breaking $45M Series B raise, the largest funding round in nursing technology, and warranted its inclusion on the Inc. 5000 list based on three-year revenue growth of 7,047 percent. The company out-ranked all other nursing workforce organizations and all Massachusetts-based companies.

“At the start of 2020, IntelyCare was finalizing a landmark investment and planning new market entries and product launches, but when the virus hit, we shifted our focus to support our nursing community,” said David Coppins, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “The past several months have been tumultuous, yet our company’s rapid growth and recent hires, combined with a rising need for nurse staffing support, all demonstrate the critical role IntelyCare plays in the post-acute space. We are dedicated to leveraging our recent successes and momentum to continue meeting the evolving needs of nursing home facilities and nursing professionals in a COVID world and beyond.”

Since launching in 2017, IntelyCare has filled more than 3 million shift hours, two-thirds of which were filled since March 2019 alone, which is a testament to the company’s exceptional momentum and a growing need for gig-based nurse staffing solutions in the post-acute market. The company has also doubled its revenue in the past year and doubled its customer footprint from 2018 to 2019. The number of nursing professionals it employs to meet this demand has increased by 159 percent over the past two years with over 15,000 healthcare workers on its staff.

IntelyCare has also continued to grow its Boston-based leadership team with three recent hires: Robyn Lunsford, SVP of Workforce Growth and Retention; Prashanth Gali, SVP of Engineering; and Rachel Schiff, SVP of Product Management. In addition to new executives, this robust hiring initiative will ensure the company is well-positioned to harness this momentum and support its expansion.

“We are the largest per-diem nursing tech company in the market, and will be a top-five per-diem provider by the end of 2020, which speaks to our unique position and approach in the space, as well as the heightened need for our market-leading technology and expertise,” said John Shagoury, President and Chief Operating Officer. “We are excited to have brought on new senior-level executives and to infuse our strategy with their deep expertise and passion for the work we do. Fueled by exciting growth, and recognition on the prestigious Inc. 5000 list, we are rolling up our sleeves and continuing to innovate new strategies and avenues for reimagining workforce management in the post-acute space.”

IntelyCare’s platform and mobile app empowers nurses with access to flexible, on-demand opportunities and intelligently matches them to open shifts that facilities need filled—reducing burnout and turnover. The solution is powered by advanced machine learning algorithms that optimize matching and pricing, creating shifts before facilities know their own need and resulting in the highest shift-fill rate in the industry. It also employs the principles of gig economics to add more than 20 percent capacity to the available workforce. This virtual workforce expansion lowers costs to facilities by reducing turnover and compliance penalties, and ensures facilities have the support needed to care for the patient population.

IntelyCare Launches First COVID-19 Training Program for Nurses, Nursing Facilities to Help Mitigate Spread of Virus

Free Virtual Training Offered to Meet Growing Demand from Most Vulnerable Healthcare Segment for Increased Education and Support

QUINCY, MA March 17, 2020 – In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, IntelyCare, a leading intelligent workforce management solution for post-acute facilities, is launching the first training certification program specific to nursing facilities. The training will update nursing professionals on COVID-19 prevention and treatment practices in order to maintain the health of nurses and patients during the outbreak.

“As we monitored the spread of coronavirus, it rapidly became clear that nursing homes are ground zero and healthcare workers are at high risk of infection. We recognized an immediate need among our facility partners and nurses for training specifically designed for these vulnerable communities,” said David Coppins, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, IntelyCare. “By offering training courses free of cost to our nursing employees and the larger nursing community, we are ensuring that nurses and facilities are better protected, informed and equipped to care for patients in this unprecedented time.”

Most Nurses Willing to Work, Need Training and Support
The coronavirus outbreak is placing intense strain on an already-taxed healthcare industry, exacerbating the existing workforce shortage which, before the virus, was expected to reach a dearth of 1M nurses by 2030. IntelyCare conducted a broad survey of its nurses to gather feedback, determine the biggest needs, and project the potential impact of the virus on the workforce. It found:

  • 74% of nursing professionals are still willing to work
  • 55% of nurses want to limit exposure to multiple facilities and want to know if a facility is infected
  • 26% of nurses would consider reducing or stopping work to avoid infection

Surveyed nurses reported wanting more transparency surrounding outbreaks, training, infection control questionnaires, and other communication via IntelyCare’s app or text/email. They also prioritized hand sanitizers, masks, and hazard pay. Nursing facilities’ biggest needs were knowing if nurses are safe to work and trained to treat and prevent the spread of COVID-19, or if any nurse has been infected.

Using the IntelyCare Platform to Flatten the Infection Curve
IntelyCare will require that all nursing employees complete the COVID-19 Best Practices Course in the IntelyCare app before taking shifts. The company will also offer a free, web-based version of the training to all nursing professionals in the U.S., meeting a wider demand for corona-specific educational tools and support. All nurses that take the training, whether employees of IntelyCare or not, will receive continued education credit of one contact hour.

The company has launched additional prevention protocol for its network of facilities and nurses, leveraging its app to share real-time updates as well as to track and mitigate infections. By enacting this comprehensive training and response plan, IntelyCare is taking critical steps to ensure healthcare gig workers don’t promote the spread of infections across facilities.

“We are seeing unprecedented demand on our platform and app from nursing facilities and nurses, all looking for support in dealing with coronavirus,” said Chris Caulfield RN, NP-C, Co-Founder and Chief Nursing Officer, IntelyCare. “We have enacted protocol to immediately notify our nurses if they have worked at an infected facility, and we’re requiring nurses take a symptom survey to ensure they are asymptomatic. We are also alerting facilities if any nurses have direct contact with an infected patient, utilizing a 14-day lookback to project potential spread. By moving swiftly and using our app to prepare our network, we hope to not only slow the disease spread but to share our best practices with other nurses and facilities to flatten the curve on a wide scale.”

In February 2020, IntelyCare raised $45M in a Series B venture round led by new investor Endeavour Vision and included Kaiser Permanente Ventures and Generator Ventures. The investment has helped the company expand its ability to provide on-demand care at critical times of need like this. The company’s platform and mobile app gives nurses access to flexible, on-demand opportunities and intelligently matches them to open shifts that facilities need filled. Through a combination of advanced machine learning algorithms and gig economics, IntelyCare’s approach adds more than 20 percent capacity to the available workforce.

IntelyCare Completes Largest Venture Round in Nursing; Raises $45M to Solve Nationwide Workforce Shortage

Endeavour Vision, Kaiser Permanente Ventures, and Generator Ventures Join Existing Investors in Round, Leveraging Gig Economics to Close Projected 1 Million Nurse Shortfall by 2030; Builds on Company’s Exceptional Momentum

QUINCY, MA February 20, 2020 – IntelyCare, a leading intelligent workforce management solution for post-acute facilities, today announced it has completed the largest venture round in the nursing technology space, raising $45M in new equity and debt financing to solve the nationwide workforce shortage. The Series B round was led by new investor Endeavour Vision and includes Kaiser Permanente Ventures and Generator Ventures. 

“As an investor in innovative medical and digital health technologies, we look for companies with disruptive solutions to the challenges facing today’s healthcare system,” said Rob Barmann, Senior Investment Director, at  Endeavour Vision. “IntelyCare’s rapid and significant growth demonstrates the value it is bringing to the nursing sector. With a unique technology and an experienced team, the company is well-positioned to develop further, and we are proud to support it in its next phase of growth.”

This new investment will support IntelyCare’s innovative efforts to apply gig economics and advanced data science technology to optimize existing talent and close the widening gap between supply and demand. The funding round builds on the company’s unprecedented momentum, which saw IntelyCare doubling its revenue and number of facilities from 2018 to 2019.

“With rising rates of chronic conditions and an aging population, there is a critical need for new technologies to support the post-acute care workforce,” said Sam Brasch, Senior Managing Director and Vice President, Kaiser Permanente Ventures. “IntelyCare’s approach augments available nurses to help overcome these complex challenges, reduce burnout and attrition, and drive greater patient care.”

Fueling Future Expansion

This new funding round comes on the heels of record company successes, demonstrating market appetite for the company’s solution. IntelyCare is one of the fastest-growing health tech startups in the Boston area:

  • Revenue doubled over two consecutive years from 2017-2019
  • Customer base (number of facilities) doubled from 2018-2019
  • More than 2 million shift hours filled since 2017
    • More than 1 million shift hours filled in the last nine months alone
  • Shift fill rates three times higher than the staffing industry average (of 25%)

“Since founding IntelyCare in 2016, the demand for our intelligent staffing solution has skyrocketed due to shifting industry dynamics and an intensifying discrepancy between availability and need,” said David Coppins, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, IntelyCare. “Our company has grown exponentially in target regions with a severe need for nurses, and we’re poised to increase our market presence by more than 140 percent in the coming year. We see this as just the beginning; it’s an exciting time for IntelyCare, our nurses, and our customers as we revolutionize the traditional healthcare staffing model.”

IntelyCare offers a platform and mobile app that empowers nurses with access to flexible, on-demand opportunities and intelligently matches them to open shifts that facilities need filled—reducing burnout and turnover. The solution is powered by advanced machine learning algorithms that optimize matching and pricing, creating shifts before facilities know their own need and resulting in the highest shift-fill rate in the industry. It also employs the principles of gig economics to add more than 20 percent capacity to the available workforce. This virtual workforce expansion lowers costs to facilities by reducing turnover and compliance penalties, and ensures facilities have the support needed to care for the patient population.

“Due to high patient-to-nurse ratios and frequent mandatory overtime, nurses experience greater burnout and dissatisfaction while patients have an increased risk of re-hospitalization and higher mortality risk,” said Chris Caulfield RN, NP-C, Co-Founder and Chief Nursing Officer, IntelyCare. “Out of all healthcare settings, post-acute care facilities experience these situations the most frequently and have the highest rates of nurse burnout, which is why we decided to develop our technology specifically for this care setting.”

IntelyCare Continues Significant Momentum in 2019 with New Client Wins and Company Expansion

Intelligent Workforce Management Company Continues to Grow to Meet Increasing Market Demand for Nurse Staffing Services Across the Nation

QUINCY, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–IntelyCare, a leading intelligent workforce management solution for post-acute facilities, today announced that it has continued its dramatic growth in the past year, winning client contracts in new states, expanding its footprint in key markets and growing its employee base to help support its expanding business. The company has also experienced a surge in the engagement of nursing professionals interacting with the IntelyCare mobile application.

Healthcare staffing shortages continue to plague the industry. This is especially true for post-acute care and skilled nursing facilities, where there is a competitive market and high demand for qualified nursing professionals. These organizations turn to IntelyCare’s per diem staffing platform to optimize staffing levels and augment their workforces through smart matching of nursing professionals to facility needs. In the past year, IntelyCare expanded its roster of signed clients by 154%, and saw significant market expansion in a number of regions, such as Pittsburgh, in which it experienced a notable 236% market growth. In less than a year’s time, IntelyCare entered into the Greater Cincinnati area (including Dayton) which has grown into the company’s largest market to date. IntelyCare also doubled the number of states in which the company operates; newly adding Florida, Illinois, New Jersey, and Kentucky.

“There is a stark lack of resources in the post-acute healthcare world, and facilities are in need of a workforce management solution that can supply them with the most qualified and skilled nursing personnel to provide their patients with the best possible care,” said David Coppins, IntelyCare’s CEO and co-founder. “IntelyCare provides facilities and nurses with a scheduling platform that works with both parties to meet their most up-to-date needs and availability, resulting in a higher fill rate than traditional agencies. Understanding these unique market needs and delivering an effective support model for these organizations not only helps them maintain optimal staffing ratios to meet quality standards, but it also helps combat larger industry challenges, such as forced overtime and staff burnout.”

The company’s expansion in client partnerships has also led to the achievement of a significant enterprise milestone in 2019: 169% revenue growth across all markets, making it the second year in a row that the company doubled its year over year revenue. To support this exploding client demand, IntelyCare has grown its company as well, increasing its headquarters staff by 50% over the last year, and adding key players to its executive team, including the appointment of John Shagoury, President and Chief Operating Officer; and Dr. Ben Tengelsen who leads the company’s advanced data science organization. IntelyCare has also dedicated resources to accelerating its workforce engagement. As part of this initiative, IntelyCare recently launched a loyalty program within its on-demand mobile app that incents its nursing professionals through awards and recognitions. As a result of this and other technological advancements, user engagement has increased, doubling the number of daily unique check-ins on the app, compared to the year prior.

As it continues to differentiate itself as a market leader in the long-term care and healthcare IT space, IntelyCare has begun to garner distinguished industry accolades and recognitions. In July, the Staffing Industry Analysts named Ike Nnah, IntelyCare’s Chief Technical Officer and co-founder, to its 2019 “40 Under 40” list for his industry leadership and innovative contributions to the staffing and workforce solutions ecosystem. Among other significant credits, The Joint Commission recently awarded IntelyCare the “Gold Seal of Approval® for Health Care Staffing Services” for its commitment to compliance, which reflects the organization’s dedication to providing the highest level of safe and quality patient care. Additionally, Healthcare Tech Outlook named IntelyCare as one of the “Top 10 Long-Term Care Solution Providers – 2019,” recognizing the company as a premier long-term care technology leader at the forefront of tackling industry challenges.
