Also in other news at Mayo Clinic, KLOC Health https://www.klochealth.com based in Denver Colorado, has entered into an agreement with Mayo Clinic to co-create a mobile, on-demand nurse staffing solution platform for Mayo. The collaboration will focus on matching nurses for immediate short and long term assignments by informing on availability, location, certifications, skill sets, and interests.
The software focuses on matching nurses for immediate, short and long term assignments by allowing for real time communication with staff to secure the right individual for the right position, at the right location, and at the right time. Nurses will also be able to build their own profiles on the platform and provide real-time feedback on their performance, job satisfaction, and peer reviews.
The KLOC Health Staffing Platform is in its final stages of development and will be launched as a pilot at Mayo Clinic. Participating nurses will be invited to create their profiles on the platform which is expected to go live by late Summer 2022.
