Flexwise partners with Sanford Health to solve nurse burnout and Covid staffing shortages

TN-based health tech company develops AI approach to improve clinical workforce scheduling and staffing
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - March 10, 2022 - PRLog -- NASHVILLE, TN – Flexwise, a health tech provider based in Nashville, Tenn., will soon be partnering with Sanford Health, one of the largest health systems in the United States, to implement data analytics and artificial intelligence to optimize the scheduling of its more than 10,000 nurses. The partnership aligns with Sanford's goal of improving clinical staffing by scheduling workforce activities through a system-wide application of patient demand forecasting.

"Sanford's Nursing Leadership, Enterprise Data Analytics, Innovation and Commercialization teams have collaborated with Flexwise to incorporate predictive analytics into our clinical workforce governance model" said Erica DeBoer, chief nursing officer at Sanford Health. "We are fully committed to harnessing the power of predictive modeling and analytics to provide new insights into our clinical workforce needs and optimize our staffing and scheduling decisions in the future."

Maintaining a balance between patient care needs and labor costs continues to become more complex, especially given challenges arising from the Covid-19 pandemic. Flexwise helps health care systems adopt a data-driven approach to clinical workforce scheduling and staffing.

"Now more than ever, hospitals need innovative solutions to help them control labor costs without compromising patient care and staff satisfaction," said Kevin Godsey, Co-Founder and CEO, Flexwise Health. "Predictive staffing will help Sanford Health achieve those objectives."

By working with a hospital's existing electronic medical records, Flexwise brings all data together in one place to optimize clinical workforce staffing decisions.

"We are excited to continue enhancing our patient care with this new platform," said DeBoer. "If we have enough nurses scheduled ahead of time, they won't be called in during a crunch."

"Flexwise is identified as the best-in-class precision staffing company," added Braden Bills, PhD, representing Sanford Health's innovation and commercialization team. "Flexwise values the Sanford Health partnership because we can provide extensive clinical, operations and data science feedback through our internal implementation efforts. We've also identified several opportunities for further collaboration to extend the platform into other areas of our clinical operations."
