To fulfill their mission of providing life-saving healthcare to those who need it most, CHG Healthcare Services needed a faster way to onboard doctors and facilitate locum tenens (that is, the ad hoc appointment of temporary doctors) in hospitals and healthcare facilities around the nation.
CHG’s previous system relied on paper doctor privileging documents and state licensing forms, which had to be faxed and sent by FedEx, often creating administrative delays and restricting the availability of doctors at crucial moments.
For the past year, CHG has used PDFfiller to accelerate doctor onboarding and to introduce a whole new level of agility and control to the document management workflows involved in hospital staffing.
By digitizing document workflow, PDFfiller allows doctors to have access to all necessary documents wherever they happen to be, meaning these documents can be finalized and returned with far greater speed, accuracy, and convenience than paper versions. The range of document management options combined with the speed of working with documents online makes the entire physician onboarding process more efficient for everyone involved.
“Sometimes we have situations where there is a hospital that needs someone right away and we have patients that can’t be seen because we couldn’t get the documentation back because we had to Fedex it to them and [the doctors] had to Fedex it back to us. The fact that they can sign on their phone and get it back to us the same day is huge for our business and for the number of patients that we serve”
