doctors talking with each other and smiling

HWL Works is a holistic approach to healthcare staffing management that considers  all of your business's goals, pain points, and everything in between. From a state-of-the-art vendor management system (VMS) platform, managed service program (MSP), and locums management services to helping you create an internal agency and source talent directly, our suite of workforce solutions helps you attain organizational imperatives.

But what exactly is HWL Works, and what can you expect from it? 


Why HWL Works

HWL Works intimately understands the healthcare industry's staffing woes and the effects that it's had on organizations just like yours. Around 90% of hospitals utilize contingent labor in some capacity; and with seemingly no end in sight, staffing costs have been one of the top priorities for leadership. 

Our turnkey solutions are proven to help organizations manage these costs without sacrificing integrity of care. In fact, our technology is already implemented in over 2,600 care settings, including health systems, behavioral health, home health, skilled nursing, long-term care, post-acute/rehab, testing sites and clinics. The HWL leadership team has over 70 years of combined experience managing large-scale, $1 billion+ contingent labor spend through VMS and MSP programs..


What to Expect From HWL Works


Vendor-Neutral MSP Solutions

Our vendor-neutral MSP solutions have proven time and time again to lower contingent labor costs, eliminate administrative burdens, and streamline recruiting processes through:

  • Contract Management: Ensure competitive market rates through meticulous analysis and supplier commitment.
  • Dedicated Account Management: We act as a dedicated point of contact between suppliers and internal stakeholders, taking on the burden of the entire recruiting process from requisition to invoicing.
  • Clinical Screening: Our clinicians conduct intake calls with hiring managers to determine the required skills, cultural fit, experience, and background.
  • Onboarding: All certifications and health information is verified and uploaded to ensure 100% compliance with HR. 
  • Real-time Analytics: Gain key insights into vendor performance, utilization, and more.

Keep in mind all of this is approached with unparalleled vendor neutrality. We ensure you are not locked into a single vendor, which allows you to add or remove vendors based on performance.

Private Label Internal Agency

What better way to recruit than to create your very own internal agency? HWL Works helps you build one from the ground up. On average, our clients see a spend reduction of 15-20%. By shifting your contingent labor to an internal agency, money flows directly to the healthcare workers, thus simultaneously reducing costs and improving worker satisfaction. HWL Works' internal agency services are run by former agency executives, meaning as veterans of the space, they understand agency economics and operations.

Talent Management Software/Vendor Management System (VMS)

A vendor management system, or VMS for short, is a cloud-based technology platform that centralizes the most critical decision-driving information about your contingent workforce. This includes tracked performance, worker wages, location, availability, and more. By standardizing contingent staff management, the organization is able to save money in both the immediate and long term. HWL's VMS includes the ability to create custom workflows, integrate with your existing systems, and provides robust analytics and reporting mechanisms.
