Who is the Account Creator for the Healthcare Facility?

The account for a Healthcare Facility on the SHIFTit web platform is typically established by an authorized individual such as an Administrator, Human Resources representative, Office Manager, or another designated person in a leadership position. 

Moreover, the individual in charge of filling shifts at your facility is the power user for the SHIFTit Facility Web application.

Your payment method is saved, and when your shift is accepted, all payment transactions from the facility to the professional are automated!

No One Has Responded to My Shifts Posting. What Do I Do?

While the majority of shifts on our platform are typically filled within a few hours, there may be instances where a shift remains open. This could be attributed to a limited number of professionals available in your vicinity. To optimize the chances of your shift being accepted, consider the following recommendations:

  1. Advance Posting: Endeavor to post shifts well in advance of the start date. This provides ample time for professionals to view and accept the shift.
  2. Competitive Compensation: If a shift remains unclaimed for over 24 hours, consider enhancing the compensation package. This could involve raising the pay rate, subsidizing lunch expenses, or covering mileage costs.
  3. Detailed Descriptions: Furnish comprehensive details about the shift. The more professionals understand about the expectations and environment, the more likely they are to commit.
  4. Profile Completeness: Ensure your facility’s profile is exhaustive and up-to-date, especially regarding payment details. Prompt responses from administrators to any queries can also expedite shift acceptance.
  5. Engage Through Reviews: Regularly provide feedback on professionals who have previously worked shifts at your facility. Positive reviews can encourage them to engage with your future opportunities.

By implementing these strategies, you can enhance the visibility and attractiveness of your shifts, leading to quicker and more frequent acceptances.
