To provide global clinical solutions for our partners that improve their service deliveries while lowering costs of operations.
There is a significant nurse shortage in the United States that is only growing. The current healthcare industry has 100,000 openings for clinical experience, and it’s projected to grow to 200,000 by 2020 (WSJ, 2016). With this shortage comes rising costs and poor care coordination with even worse outcomes.
We believe there’s a responsibility for companies like Shearwater Health to provide solutions that help mitigate this shortage. Since 1973 we have continually developed our clinical staff to meet the needs of healthcare providers, payers, and any company with needs that require skilled clinical experience. Our desire to provide high quality nursing staff and Clinical Process Outsourcing® (CPO®) fuels the solutions we provide to our clients.
Shearwater Health brings a unique advantage in the healthcare marketplace due to our Global Healthcare Solutions Model which allows us to partner with and retain the best clinicians in the market.
Shearwater uses clinically-certified staff all over the world to meet the needs of healthcare companies in the U.S. We have over 1,700 clinicians in our URAC-accredited facilities in the Philippines that operate in remote teams for our clients. We couple our clinical expertise with Six Sigma business experts and Robotic Process Automation to improve outcomes and lower costs.
We also sponsor international nurses with the clinical expertise to work as a nurse in the U.S. Through our Nurse Recruitment & Retention solution, we’re able to provide hospitals with experienced nurses from all over the world.
By outsourcing to Shearwater for their clinical and administrative needs, our clients are able to free up their current clinical staff to perform the highest priority tasks.
