How to Build Your Own Internal Agency Pool to Reduce Reliance on Agencies, Lower Costs and Meet Staffing Demands

Healthcare systems across the country face serious staffing challenges and many rely on third party staffing vendors to source staff, which results in a premium high cost. To address this challenge, Augusta University Medical Center decided to create their own internal agency to combat these high costs, ultimately lowering costs while filling the staffing demands. Augusta University Medical Center partnered with Healthcare Workforce Logistics to develop a strategic marketing campaign, as well as a seamless, automated workflow, to quickly hire and onboard contracted staff.

Butler, MSM, BSN, RN, Director of Clinical Nursing Resource Management at Augusta University Medical Center; Noah Rees, Director of Business Operations at Augusta University Medical Center; and Jeff Niles, Executive Vice President at Healthcare Workforce Logistics on how to create your own internal agency pool while reducing reliance on agencies, lowering costs on premium pay rates and meeting staffing demands.
