Medefis Offers New Option for Staffing Needs

The COVID-19 pandemic is presenting unprecedented challenges to health care facilities. Medefis, a rapid staffing network solution from AMN Healthcare, hopes to ease some of the burden of the COVID-19 pandemic. This vendor management system comes with a pre-vetted network of nursing, respiratory, and physician contingent personnel. It is designed to simplify life for HR departments, especially smaller hospitals (fewer than 300 beds), with staffing services to address:    

  • Increase in census with resultant forecasting challenges 
  • Critical shortages in ER, ICU and respiratory units 
  • Need to mobilize health care professionals quickly 
  • Turnover of core staff; school closures impacting availability and morale 

Medefis streamlines licensure and universal compliance documentation requirements, which will enable clinicians to be mobilized more quickly. Hospitals can also request temporary assignments with durations of three weeks or longer through the easy-to-use platform. Operationally, the program provides stand-alone time capture, standardized invoicing, and financial reporting related to all interactions. There is also flexibility to include or exclude certain components of the staffing rate, such as lodging. 

Medefis is an Endorsed Business Partner and hospitals that want to utilize this staffing solution are encouraged to join. There is no cost and there is no requirement to use the program if it doesn’t meet your hospital’s needs. Training and technical assistance are available to support hospitals as they learn how to best use the AMN technology portal. Click here to learn more about the program or contact Doug Janes at (877) 282-5305 or
