As always, we’re listening to the feedback we get from Users about how they interact with LocumsMart and looking for ways to improve the User experience. One request we’ve heard recently from a few Vendor Members regards the information that is viewable from the list views for Assignment Requests. As a direct response to this feedback, LocumsMart is adding the ability for Users to view how many Providers have been accepted for a particular Assignment Request.
A common use case that illustrates how this additional information is helpful to Users is when a Healthcare Organization opens an Assignment Request for multiple doctors on the same practice description. Even if the Facility User only requests one FTE on the AR, LocumsMart always allows the Facility to indicate whether recruitment is complete at the time they click to accept a Provider, in which case the AR would move to the Archive folder, or whether the AR should remain active and be displayed in the Open folder. The Facility and/or HCO can leave the job Open, continue to receive Bids, and see if there are additional Providers they may want to Accept.
Currently, as a Vendor User, the card view of an Open Assignment Request displays how many Active Bids you have sent, as well as how many Total Bids have been received by the Facility, but there is no indication as to whether any Confirmation Agreements have resulted from any of those Bids. A few different Vendor Users have provided feedback to LocumsMart that it would be helpful for them to know whether any Providers have already been accepted on a particular Assignment Request. Having this additional level of information about the Open jobs at a Facility will help our Vendor Members decide how to prioritize their recruitment efforts and use their time more efficiently.
Got any suggestions for how LocumsMart could work even better for you? Let us know.
