Utmost for Healthcare

Utmost enables work to get done

Without one system of record to capture the entire workforce, how can you plan for the future?

Ninety percent of healthcare providers rely on contingent workers. That demand has continued increase as providers seek to respond to the budgetary pressures, skill shortages, and increased demand they face. 

Utmost provides a single solution for sourcing and tracking workers, automating key processes (especially on/offboarding), reporting, and ensuring compliance.

Healthcare leaders need visibility and compliance

Staffing Industry Analysts reporting an overall physician demand growth of 16% by 2032 and Staff Care’s 2020 Survey of Temporary Physician Staffing Trends indicating that 85% of healthcare providers used locum tenens doctors in the previous 12 months. 

Key Challenges:

  • Access to highly skilled talent
  • Irregular shift patterns, different rates for night shifts, weekend shifts, overtime, on-call rates, double pay
  • Worker misclassification resulting in massive cost to the organization 
  • Administrative burden trying to track training, vaccinations, certifications

Organizational Self Assessment

As a healthcare leader, are you lacking a scalable approach to managing the external workforce? Are you able to  deliver visibility into cost, skills, certifications, and detailed work history across the entire workforce, allowing your organization to plan for the future? To know for sure, here are a few questions to consider. If you can't answer these questions, don't worry, you're not alone.

Many organizations struggle to understand or capitalize on their extended workforce simply because they don’t know what they don’t know. 

Can you calculate the number of extended workers?

This includes freelancers, gig workers, independent contractors, consultants, outsourced workers, and SOW workers. Additional complexity tracking volunteers, students, residents, and fellows who may also be employees in the system.

Do you have visibility into worker skills?

It's important to understand the skill sets you’re lacking across your workforce and workers that may need to be reskilled to keep up with market demands.

Are your workers classified correctly?

It is critical to understand how every one of your workers is classified to avoid legislative and compliance risk. 

Do you know your extended workforce spend?

The ability to report on and provide predictive analysis on your total talent spend, including your extended workforce, from one system is imperative.

Are you able to track complex pay rates and irregular shifts?

Irregular shift patterns, different rates for night shifts, weekend shifts, overtime, on-call rates, double pay, holiday pay, home visits, and travel rates make it hard to ensure the correct rate is paid to each worker.
