The nursing shortage gripping North America is fought on the front lines by hospital HR teams everyday. With the remote work revolution passing nurses by, it’s no surprise that 90% of nurses are considering leaving the profession in the next year. The legacy staff-nurse model is being eroded, and the future is flexible nurse staffing fulfilled by agencies.
Managing multiple staffing agencies at hospitals is hard. Agota Health automates communications, record keeping, and cost management so that hospitals save time and money. Agota is currently piloting with four hospitals, and will be charging a 1% fee on all staffing agency shifts fulfilled, going forward, on completion of the design partnership terms.
Agota Health becomes hospitals’ one source of truth for filling shifts from staffing agencies and travel nurses. Later, Agota Health plans to enable nurses to practice independently by offering their labour through the platform directly to hospitals.
