Expert presenters will discuss operational strategies to attract and retain clinical staff, including optimization of the traditional float pool model.

HAUPPAUGE, NEW YORK, USA, January 12, 2023/ / -- Staff recruitment and retention continue to be a top priority for hospitals and health systems across the country. The challenges of the ongoing nurse shortage and changing workforce demands require innovative approaches for effective labor sourcing and management. To help organizations navigate these difficult circumstances, Hallmark Health Care Solutions and the American Organization for Nursing Leadership (AONL) have joined forces to produce a free webinar, “ The Power of Tech-Enablement: Modernizing Today’s Mobile Workforce.

Jennifer Firmalan of Hallmark Health Care Solutions and Kimberley Sauro of Henry Ford Health System will lead the educational program, held Jan. 23. They will address how to operationalize high-quality nursing and non-traditional float pools that meet the needs of the hospital and of the evolving workforce. Webinar attendees will explore answers to critical questions such as: How should your team prepare for the strategy? What steps can you take to operationalize a successful program in your market? What are the must-haves, and what should leaders avoid?

“It’s time for health systems to start competing with staffing agencies,” says Bill Reau, COO of Hallmark Health Care Solutions. “One way to do this is to develop an internal agency model. Several organizations are starting to move in this direction, but without the right process and technology in place, their programs may not yield the desired results.”

The webinar not only will address how to modernize the traditional float pool model, it will provide attendees with the operational strategies for successfully attracting and retaining the staff they need. During this session, Firmalan and Sauro will cover:

• How to gain support across the enterprise for changing your float pool model
• Building a program specific to your market
• Operationalizing a program that supports multiple locations and modalities
• Fully leveraging a float pool beyond nursing staff
• The results stemming from Henry Ford Health’s float pool modernization
