Our Online Platform Can Help You Develop and Manage Your Pool of Locum Tenens Providers
The TempMD online platform allows you to identify quality providers and confirm bookings for your staffing needs quickly and easily and at a much lower cost. We have substituted technology for the high cost of a traditional middleman staffing agency. All TempMD fees are disclosed to the Client prior to the booking confirmation so there are no surprises. TempMD allows you to pay the providers a bit more and still enjoy substantial savings. This helps you attract the best providers and keep them happy.
The Locum Tenens industry is rapidly growing for a variety of reasons and the costs to the clients or facilities that need coverage continues to rise. The rates that traditional staffing companies charge continue to increase at a much higher rate than provider pay increases. This state of affairs creates some level of inherent friction to occur between both: (i) clients and staffing companies; and (ii) providers and staffing companies, because the perception is that staffing companies are taking too much from both the client and the provider. TempMD reduces this friction level as providers and clients know exactly what everyone is making and paying and since TempMD is openly taking less, this allows providers to make more and clients to still pay much less than prevailing Locum Tenens rates.
Cost savings is not the only reason to use TempMD. In a traditional staffing arrangement, a staffing company has an incentive to present the first "qualified" provider candidate to the client as the Locum Tenens industry is based on a race to present as the first to present wins. This model does not encourage a staffing company to take the time to look for the best provider fit. By using TempMD, a client can peruse the database and seek out the candidates that best fit the open position or need. If TempMD cannot fill your need (and we know we cannot fill every need) by all means put that need out to your usual group of 3-5 staffing companies and let them hunt down your provider. TempMD knows that clients don’t post needs unless they have a real need. By trying TempMD's services at least, the client will know that it tried to fill the need at a lower cost first.
