NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nomad Health, the first online marketplace directly connecting physicians with freelance clinical work, has been endorsed by the Texas Hospital Association as a partner in helping Texas hospitals more efficiently and effectively fill temporary physician staffing positions. Founded in 2015 by a team of physicians and leading technologists, Nomad Health uses a simple and user-friendly digital platform to eliminate third-party recruitment brokers and directly connect physicians with the medical institutions that hire them. Both sides of the marketplace benefit from substantial time and cost savings.
In July 2017, Nomad Health launched its Texas marketplace, and the company already is working with thousands of clinicians and dozens of health care facilities throughout the state.
"Finding and hiring great physician talent is a constant and costly challenge for Texas hospitals," said Ted Shaw, THA president and CEO. “We are confident that partnering with Nomad Health will help our hospitals simplify physician staffing and help physicians get to work faster to serve Texas patients."
Healthcare provider shortages and turnover are a growing problem in Texas, creating access-to-patient-care challenges across the state. Hospitals rely on freelance clinicians so they can maintain vital health care services in their communities. The short-term staffing industry, however, has been dominated for decades by middleman brokers who add costs and delays. As a result, hospitals are anxious for better, more cost-effective tools to help find and hire quality clinical talent.
"As a doctor myself, I've experienced far too many archaic recruitment and onboarding processes," said Alexi G. Nazem, M.D., Nomad Health co-founder and CEO. "Nomad is a 21st century recruiting tool that makes finding and taking a job as easy as booking a vacation on Airbnb. With the time and money saved by using Nomad, clinicians and medical institutions can focus their efforts more directly on delivering outstanding patient care."
"Texas has long been at the forefront of innovation in medicine, from pioneering cardiac surgery to the invention of mammography as well as other advances too numerous to count. Nomad Health is thrilled to partner with the Texas Hospital Association to continue this tradition by solving critical challenges on behalf of Texan patients," said Nazem.
