NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--What if you could know which of your employees is looking to move jobs—before it happens? DocDelta, a healthcare tech startup, says that they’ve found the key to this valuable insight, and they’re launching their innovative software platform this month.
Citing the intense rivalry between competing hospitals as inspiration for the product, DocDelta’s CEO John Dymond says that the nature of job recruitment is changing, especially when it comes to physicians and nurses. “It’s intensely competitive,” Dymond says. “Hospitals are buying up primary care institutions or hiring their doctors to direct referrals to the hospital's own specialists, and disrupting the business status quo.” As competition heats up, healthcare employers are compelled to take a much more active role in sourcing and retaining the best physician candidates—who may be employed at competing hospitals.
DocDelta provides a web-based analytics recruitment and retention suite—what they’re calling a ‘talent search engine’ for healthcare—the centerpiece of which is a dynamic physician ‘flight risk’ score that predicts the likelihood of a physician changing jobs. Behind that simple number are terabytes of medical, social and financial data.
Sociologist Simone Gabbriellini, PhD, a co-founder at DocDelta has been working intensely on understanding job embeddedness and job mobility in the US physician population. “We have mapped the job movements of almost every physician in the northeast and are now working on mapping every single physician in the USA,” Gabriellini says, “and now it’s time to put our highly sophisticated algorithm to work.”
Following a demonstration of DocDelta’s software at the BluePrint Health tech accelerator Demo Day, investors and clients have been eager to get a piece of the New York based startup. “I’m really excited about what the guys at DocDelta are bringing to healthcare recruitment and retention,” says Christopher Mastrantuono, a top physician recruiter from a leading health system in NYC. “They are clearly building the future of the healthcare talent industry.”
