The California startup gives nursing professionals and hospitals a faster and more efficient hiring process through proprietary matching algorithms that replace the need for hospitals to manually sift through applications. Instead the platform matches job seekers to nursing vacancies based on criteria supplied by both sides of its network. The recruitment platform Launched in late 2017 and has so far limited its range to California, with 150+ hospitals in the region signed up and an undefined “thousands” of nurses on board.
Incredible Health claims that by 2024 the US will have a shortage of a million nurses. This shortage will be a risk of financial loss to hospitals, as contractors cost more to employ, and the growing number of unfilled nursing vacancies risks the quality of care hospitals are able to offer patients.
Their hiring and recruitment solution taps algorithms to help health systems narrow down the list of qualified nurses, and to provide those nurses with personalized, tailored opportunities they’d not likely find anywhere else. That’s not to suggest it’s an entirely automated flow — human experts support both job seekers and employers along the way, vetting matches to ensure they’ll lead to fruitful, long-term employment.
Hospitals begin by making a profile and then browsing a set of licensed nurse candidates screened for over 40 specialties, education, experience, malpractice records, and certifications before sending interview requests to professionals they’d like to meet. On the candidate side, nurses can accept or decline requests that come to them and compare top offers from favored hospitals that match their criteria.
Incredible Health’s mission is to help health care professionals live better lives and do their best work. They’ve seen strong early success helping to match these health care professionals with hospitals throughout California, and are beginning to expand their solution nationally.
