Improve Patient Care, Optimize Spend & Reduce Labor Shortages

Many healthcare facilities today are managing multiple vendors and contracts, in-house staffing pools, hundreds of candidate submissions, interviews, verification and validation of documents, timekeeping, billing and the complexities that go along with these processes. Add multiple external factors to the mix such as ever increasing regulation, quality measure reporting, and accountable care, and the challenges increase exponentially.


Healthcare organizations faced with funding cuts and reimbursement reductions are compelled to find more efficient and cost-effective ways to manage their contingent workforce. As one of the largest and most recognized national providers of healthcare staffing and workforce solutions, MSN understands how to balance quality patient care with costs savings.
