It’s no secret that we need more health care professionals. The staffing shortage is real. We all feel it. Nobody feels it more than the professionals themselves. They are overworked and overwhelmed. The traditional model isn’t working. Health care facilities cannot find enough workers. Workers are burnt out. And patients suffer the most in the end.
That’s where Clipboard’s marketplace comes in. We’re reinventing the health care market by putting the needs of workers, facilities, and patients first. We are not a staffing agency. We are an online marketplace that connects independent professionals and health care facilities that desperately need their services. Why does that matter? Because we’re giving professionals the independence they want, facilities the workers they need, and patients the care they deserve.
We designed our marketplace to maximize flexibility, ease of use, and fair pay - no shift minimums, no non-competes, and no other barriers to work. Professionals work when and where is best for them. That might mean only one shift a week and then more the next week. Or maybe a professional wants to test a new market for a while. Or even already has a full-time job and wants to supplement their income. Many professionals have taken full-time jobs at the very facilities they discovered while using the marketplace. That shows the marketplace works and is empowering professionals.
Clipboard’s marketplace does the same thing for health care facilities that are desperate for health care professionals. Facilities can post as many or as few shifts on the marketplace as they need - and up to the very last minute. Our marketplace provides last-minute vacancies so patients never go without care. Maybe a facility needs to find coverage on short notice because regular employees are out due to family obligations, illness, or just need a well-deserved break.
Our on-boarding is streamlined. The average professional starts booking shifts within seven days after starting the signup process - and about 30% book shifts within 24 hours of signing up. This makes a world of difference for professionals looking for immediate income. Even better, our marketplace pays professionals ASAP - not a week or weeks later. Speed is also critical for facilities with immediate staffing needs - without these marketplaces, hundreds of thousands of shifts would go unbooked, and patients would not receive the care they need.
Our marketplace is working for professionals, who are generating millions of dollars in earnings each week and working more than a million shifts a year. That’s happening even though most professionals average just 2.25 shifts or fewer per week. That’s the power of independence, flexibility, and innovation.
Hundreds of thousands of patients are now receiving care because of shifts booked through Clipboard. With Clipboard, they are receiving better, more attentive care in a fully-staffed healthcare setting. None of this would be possible if we were not continuing to innovate and operate as an independent marketplace. We empower workers and facilities to better serve their patients and provide for themselves.
