WHAT IS MOBIUS SYSTEMS®?
Mobius Systems® is a unique methodology developed by healthcare staffing strategists at Convergence Services Group, a talent advisory firm. This methodology delivers a dynamic, customized internal flexible workforce, allowing healthcare facilities to best align staffing to census needs, while reducing overall labor costs and containing associated risks and liabilities.
Execution of this type of staffing methodology has proven to improve patient experience, ensuring quality and safety at all times while reducing clinician burnout, attracting clinicians, increasing clinician retention and reducing labor costs and risks.
Well within the first quarter of implementing the Mobius Systems® methodology, our clients have recognized a complete return on their investment and more.
As most hospitals work through numerous shift vacancies daily, many rely on mandatory overtime and forced floating. Additionally, low census may dictate clinicians being called off a shift, affecting employee pay and PTO time. Both scenarios create instability for employees, leading to dissatisfaction, disengagement and eventually, clinician burnout and/or attrition.
Similarly, revenue generation and reimbursements continue to shift to more competitive and compressed methods, making agency usage more cost prohibitive than in previous times. Competition within service areas and other fields that use healthcare professionals is increasing and therefore is creating more job choices for healthcare professionals. These developments have also made talent acquisition more complex and time consuming. Compounded by a multi-generational workforce with dissimilar career needs and expectations, organizations are searching for ways to integrate new staffing methods that effectively attract, secure and retain staff.
According to the Association for Talent Development, 25% of all consumers review scorecards to compare the performance of doctors, hospitals and/or health plans versus only 19% two years ago. Millennials alone review such information 49% of the time versus 31% of the time two years ago.
Additionally, in our age of consumerism, patients are taking an active role in their care experience. They have become more informed and engaged with the costs, quality of care and facility reputation prior to selecting and remaining loyal to healthcare providers. Therefore it is incumbent upon facilities to deliver high-quality healthcare, while maximizing employee satisfaction and balancing cost containment/avoidance relative to labor and risk.
Securing your market share of local talent and building a pipeline of future full-time employees is a complex issue, and critical for survival in today’s healthcare landscape.
