Using Technology to Gain and Retain Healthcare Employees

According to the 2022 NSI National Healthcare Retention & RN Staffing Report, the average hospital turnover rate in 2021 was 25.9%, revealing a 6.4% increase over the prior year. Over the last five years, hospitals on average, have turned over 100.5% of their staff. Organizations are searching for new and innovative ways to address churn and recruit top talent in healthcare. Automating routine (and often time-consuming) tasks can reduce administrative burnout for HR professionals and caregivers, enabling them to focus on higher-value initiatives. An investment in automation is an investment in your employees and the overall efficiency of your organization.


  1. Accelerate the recruiting and onboarding of qualified candidates.
  2. Improve employee retention.
  3. Strengthen the security of patient care by licensed and certified professionals.
