Fallout from the pandemic continues to affect the world economy, most notably in healthcare.
Staffing Shortages in 2022
According to a recent article in Healthleaders, although most prevalent in nursing, healthcare staffing shortages are across the board. Not only are bedside caregivers burned out and leaving in record numbers, so are the background positions that keep a hospital running. Custodians, food service, medical records, financial and other vital staff are harder to hire and retain.

Our experienced team is complemented by proprietary technology, nCREAS™, to enhance both revenue opportunities and compliance.
