Shift In-house Staff from Relo Duty to Credentialing Support
According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, one of the best ways to speed the credentialing process is to designate one or more staff people to run point on all your incoming applications.
Not in a position to expand your administrative team? That’s okay: when you outsource your relocation program, you free employees who are already experts at working with new hires—except instead of juggling receipts and populating spreadsheets, they’re ensuring those all-important credentialing apps are completed promptly and fully.
The right tech-based relocation vendor will provide you with all the data you need to manage your program wisely, via a real-time dashboard of key information, on-demand analytics—and even automatically-generated reports emailed to your inbox.
End result: you not only achieve a smoother credentialing process, but a more closely-managed relocation program.
One More Word of Advice
If you’re outsourcing your relocation program for the first time, you may find your vendor choices overwhelming. With that thought, here are three questions to ask when evaluating relocation providers:
Are They Traditional or Tech-based?
Traditional providers operate primarily by people-power—that is, new hires are dependent upon a specific relocation consultant to help them manage their move. While tech-based providers like UrbanBound do provide relocation specialists, employees also have access to an empowering online portal, where they can manage much of their relocation how and when they choose.
In our experience, highly-trained professionals like physicians, researchers and nurses vastly prefer tech-based solutions to old-school methods—and their employers do, too.
Will They Cost Us or Save Us Money?
Few hospitals can afford to increase their relocation budgets right now. And with the right relocation provider, you won’t need to.
For example, when employers switch to UrbanBound, they save an average of 66% per move—while providing employees with a better relocation experience.
Do They Know the Healthcare Industry?
When it comes to relocation, the healthcare industry has unique needs. If you choose a provider that doesn’t understand them and therefore doesn’t accommodate them, you’re setting yourself and your new hires up for frustration—and that can impact their ability to get up and running in your facility.
