[BRENTWOOD, TN., January 17, 2024] – In a transformative move set to redefine healthcare hiring, Relode, a leading healthcare recruitment engine with an extensive network of healthcare professionals and recruiters, is proud to announce a strategic partnership with epocrates, an athenahealth, Inc. company that delivers digital clinical decision support to over one million prescribers. This alliance combines Relode’s innovative recruiting engine with the trusted epocrates solution to increase the reach and visibility of job openings, enabling healthcare organizations to solve the challenges created by open roles and start alleviating that pain point quickly, at scale.
According to data from Elsevier Health’s Clinician of the Future report, 47% of healthcare workers plan to leave their positions by 2025, yet this is not a new problem. Data from Definitive Healthcare shows that 117,000 physicians left the workforce in 2021, followed by nurse practitioners with 53,295 departures, and physician assistants with 22,704 departures. Relode can help offset the impact of these staffing gaps with a proven shorter-time-to-hire process than industry averages.
“Our innovative partnership with epocrates streamlines the hiring process by enabling healthcare professionals to easily apply for jobs or refer peers directly from an app they already use,”
says Peter Clare, CEO of Relode. “This is essential given the healthcare industry’s high turnover rates and ongoing labor shortages.”
This unique referral model sets off a ripple effect, drastically increasing the reach and visibility of job opportunities. The convenience of referring or applying directly from the epocrates app fosters active participation, ensuring the right candidates are informed about applicable jobs. The efficiency of this model is already being demonstrated, with over 1,000 healthcare professionals evaluating job opportunities through Relode within the first two weeks of launching the partnership.
“The staffing crisis is an issue that is compounded when not addressed rapidly. As an example, according to the American Nurses Foundation, 41% of nurses are considering leaving their current positions due to insufficient staffing,”
said Bridget Seay, Executive Director of Customer Experience & Commercial Consulting, epocrates. “At epocrates, we strive to empower clinicians to deliver care at the top of their license, so partnering with Relode to address this urgent crisis is a natural part of our offering.”
