McLean, Va. – August 1, 2023- ShiftMed, an on-demand W-2 marketplace for healthcare professionals (HCPs), today announced it will collaborate with Huron, a global professional services firm, to support health systems in implementing its on-demand, marketplace staffing solutions. The collaboration between Huron and ShiftMed will help healthcare organizations manage the challenges they face in acquiring and managing skilled HCPs. 

ShiftMed is helping hospital systems save money three ways:
