Balance your healthcare facility’s fixed and variable staffing when you partner with Cross Country Staffing.September 30, 2014 by Vickie Anenberg

As baby boomers age and the impact of the Affordable Care Act becomes more pronounced, we can see a significant nursing shortage is on the horizon. It's more urgent than ever for healthcare facilities to find a balance between fixed and temporary staff throughout the seasonal changes in patient census. Currently, many healthcare facility executives are making internal adjustments and engaging with workforce solution providers in order to ensure optimal patient care in this ever-evolving healthcare ecosystem.

Cross Country Staffing addresses the challenge to manage costs while satisfying patient/staff ratios through Internal Resource Pool development and management, ensuring a continual flow of qualified candidates. We also have a more traditional staffing model with our Managed Services Provider program.

The number of Americans 65 and older is expected to grow from 34.8 million in 2000 to 53.7 million in 2020. In the same year (2020), the healthcare industry is expected to face a registered nursing shortage exceeding 400,000. Cross Country Staffing's Managed Services Provider program builds a relationship with your healthcare facility. We take the time to learn the staffing flows and processes so we can help deliver data-driven workforce solutions that ensure you're consistently at full staff and able to meet patient needs.  

Cross Country Staffing can help your healthcare facility operate more effectively and efficiently with a number of our available services from Internal Resource Pools and Managed Services Provider programs to workforce assessments, electronic medical record (EMR) transition staffing and recruitment process outsourcing services.
