There is a shortage of nurses. Older nurses are retiring while younger generations of nurses are facing extremely high rates of burnout. Registered nurse job vacancies continue to remain high, despite an aging population and growing need for healthcare.
In order to address this ongoing shortage Avant Healthcare Professionals recruits, trains, and places much-needed nurses from abroad into the U.S. healthcare system. Commissioning and onboarding Healthcare Professional’s (HCP) from overseas is an increasingly complex and highly regulated process. Previously, Avant Healthcare Professionals had relied heavily on spreadsheets to track and manage recruitment, onboarding and active assignments of nurses. This process became cumbersome as the pipeline of candidates and placements quickly grew.
To scale with demand, while effectively managing data security and compliance, Avant Healthcare Professionals Chief Financial Officer Spence Lloyd, and his team built an enterprise resource management (ERP) solution entirely on Quickbase. It not only automates tasks and workflows, but also adjusts to constant change across such areas as immigration law, work visas, and state-by-state certifications.
To manage the complexities of onboarding new nurses, Avant needed a highly-customized solution. Quickbase provided the company with a fast, flexible platform for building robust business applications that has allowed the company to expand and support a 300% growth in its nursing pipeline.
