Hiring challenges the organization faced
A four-hospital health system, part of a large national organization, located in San Jose, California needed a better solution for recruiting and onboarding registered nurses and nurse practitioners. Like many other hospitals, they were exceeding 70 days to fill open positions. The situation was especially difficult in Northern California where the competition is fierce and the cost of living high. The slow process and competitive market translated to a higher cost per hire, along with increasing overtime and traveler costs for the hospitals.
The solution Incredible Health provided
The health system chose to partner with Incredible Health to reduce inefficiencies, shorten the recruiting and hiring process, and improve results. Using its advanced automation, data and recruiting technology, Incredible Health was able to sort through thousands of candidate data points to more effectively screen and identify the best matches for both the hospitals and the registered nurses.
The organization saw results in under 30 days
The results have been quick and substantial. It took only 30 minutes to train and set up new users on the Incredible Health platform. Because the platform is candidate-centric, it presents the health system only nurses who are actively looking, reducing time they previously wasted targeting any nurse in a particular region. The health system’s recruitment team was able to hire new candidates within the first few days of using Incredible Health, including high-profile positions like trauma coordinators, emergency department supervisors, and labor and delivery staff nurses.

- 10% of open positions filled
