A: Not at all. Although the concept of having a “reserve” of available nurses is similar, that is the only similarity. In our program, the work rules for participants are well above those standards of the typical “pools,” and participants are incented differently. Also, by raising the bar on performance, fostering availability and consistent work patterns, and offering participants more control over their use of competencies, shifts and days worked, Mobius Systems’ outcomes far out-perform traditional float pools. Additionally, we help your management establish Rules of Engagement that ensure the most effective utilization of participants’ competencies, while creating a level playing field of how flexible talent is utilized across your entire health system.
