CareRev and the Massachusetts Health & Hospital Association Partner to Support the State’s Healthcare Workforce Efforts

VENICE, Calif., June 20, 2023 – CareRev, a leading technology platform that connects healthcare facilities with qualified local professionals, and the Massachusetts Health & Hospital Association (MHA) today announced a partnership to help address the workforce needs of hospitals and health systems in the commonwealth. 

According to a recent MHA survey, an estimated 19,000 positions are currently unfilled in Massachusetts acute care hospitals alone. There is an urgent demand for workforce development strategies that keep clinicians in the healthcare field. While workforce continues to be the ultimate priority for health systems and facilities, CareRev’s technology offers a long-term solution to the current shortages. CareRev can tap local talent and connect Massachusetts hospitals with highly qualified healthcare professionals in their community, keeping care local. The platform also provides facilities with the ability to streamline staffing managers’ workflow, simplify onboarding processes and the tracking of credentials, and build an even more resilient workforce that is ready to deploy in times of excess need. 

“We are in the middle of a massive healthcare professional workforce crisis, one that could have grave effects on patients and our communities,” said Brandon Atkinson, CEO of CareRev. “As a sector, we have not yet come to terms with the fact that change is inevitable to promote the safety and wellbeing of our patients and our workforce. CareRev’s partnership with the Massachusetts Health & Hospital Association is emblematic of the beginnings of a new approach to reconstructing and reimagining the Massachusetts healthcare workforce.”

Hospitals across the United States are using CareRev’s platform to forge relationships with local healthcare professionals who are eager to stay in the healthcare sector but want more flexibility in their careers. Through the platform, staffing managers post available shifts, reaching this pre-qualified talent pool. The professionals are then able to browse and pick up shifts on the CareRev app, filling in for the full-time workforce. This provides hospitals with yet another tool and innovation to reduce clinician burnout and honor time off requests while maintaining safe care. 

“We have chosen to partner with CareRev knowing that a strong workforce is our members’ number one priority,” said Valerie Fleishman, MHA’s Senior Vice President and Chief Innovation Officer. “With CareRev’s platform, Massachusetts hospitals have access to a tool that can help them grow their local talent pool on-demand, while simultaneously advancing their approach to workforce management. By engaging local healthcare professionals, hospitals can be even better positioned to meet the ever-changing needs of their patients.”
