At AHSA, we pride ourselves on building strategic staffing solutions that provide cost savings, create efficiencies by streamlining communication, contracting, credentialing, and invoicing while at the same staying laser focused on quality and enhancing patient outcomes. By offering a solution that strikes the right balance of high tech and high touch, we give time and money back to our clients so they can focus on delivering the best patient care possible.
That’s what AHSA delivers.
More than 200 agencies are contracted to us, supplying temporary Nursing, Allied Health, Physician, Medical Office, IT, Finance and Accounting professionals - and it is all done through a specifically designated AHSA Relationship team acting as your one point of contact throughout the entire staffing process.
Our service is supported by proprietary technology, which provides easy access to all candidate records and eliminates excessive paperwork.
All agencies within AHSA’s network are enjoined to a single, standard contract. This eliminates the requirement for our healthcare clients to maintain multiple agency contracts, each with its own terms, conditions, and stipulations.
AHSA offers a single point of contact through a specifically-assigned Relationship Manager supported by a client relationship team that coordinates all communication, information, and client needs throughout the entire staffing process.
Our recruiting process includes a large contracted agency pool competing to fill open positions. This enables us to maintain pricing at competitive levels while also improving quality and turn-around time. Additionally, AHSA’s standard agency contract includes terms that substantially lower costs pertaining to orientation, overtime, assignment extensions, and the transitioning of candidates to permanent employment status.
Key performance metrics are tracked and presented in a reporting format that provides insight to all staffing activity to the unit level. This provides our clients greater control in their budgeting and hiring process and holds AHSA accountable.
AHSA’s consolidated billing provides a comprehensive look at all current supplemental staff, allowing easy invoice review and approval. Our audit procedures ensure invoice accuracy and save our clients a significant amount of time and money. AHSA’s billing services accommodate both manual and electronic timekeeping systems.
