From reactive to proactive, a managed services provider will help you make the transition.

From reactive to proactive, a managed services provider will help you make the transition.May 28, 2014 by Vickie Anenberg

A management technique that relies on reacting to challenges rather than planning for them sets the stage for misjudgments and mistakes. That is why many healthcare organizations rely on managed services providers (MSP) to help them operate at peak efficiency.

An MSP will handle many of the day-to-day management responsibilities with which healthcare facilities need assistance. The MSP assumes responsibility for various functions and focuses on their smooth operation, which allows the client to concentrate on other areas.

Clients who use a MSP aren’t just freeing up resources that can be used in other ways, however, they also receive the benefits that an experienced services provider is able to offer.

Cross Country Staffing (CCS) has been providing managed services for more than 10 years, and has helped clients at more than 660 healthcare facilities nationwide with their staffing needs. This experience gives CCS the knowledge necessary to become a strategic business partner with its clients, creating operational efficiencies and implementing best practices that create a proactive management style.

CCS works with clients to develop a strategy for both planned and unplanned staffing vacancies that ensures quality healthcare staffing will be in place no matter what happens. This eliminates the need to cover vacancies at the last minute, which can be expensive. The pre-credentialing process used by CCS also means that staff is highly qualified and will be able to deliver the level of care your organization demands.

As an experienced managed services provider, CCS has the knowhow to drill down and meet the specific needs of its clients, but it can also view the larger picture and suggest improvements based on the work it has done with hundreds of other healthcare clients. This can help turn a reactive organization into a proactive one very quickly and effectively.
