Prolucent Chosen by Major Texas Health System as Technology Partner to Develop a Single Systemwide Flexible Staffing Strategy

Prolucent ®, a leading provider of enterprise-wide healthcare workforce optimization software and services, today announced an agreement with Houston Methodist, recognized as a U.S. News & World Report's best hospitals in Texas for 12 years in a row, to implement the company's vendor-neutral MSP services and LiquidCompass® VMS+, a flexible workforce platform and vendor management system.

The system will provide an enterprise-wide MSP program and VMS across all eight Houston Methodist hospitals and numerous clinics in the greater Houston area, seamlessly integrating both internal and external flexible labor resources on a single technology platform to streamline the management and filling of temporary staffing positions.

"Many health systems like Houston Methodist are creating internal staffing pools as healthcare workers seek flexibility and work-life balance, while hospitals aim to optimize staffing costs and leerage their trained personnel," stated Bruce Springer, co-founder and CEO of Prolucent. "While reliance on external third-party agencies for temporary staffing cannot be entirely eliminated, a hybrid approach that integrates both internal and external contingent labor resources - with a prioritized staffing model that taps internal resources first - reduces labor costs and enhances staff satisfaction and employee retention. Our MSP services coupled with LiquidCompass VMS+ is providing new opportunities for efficiency that is redefining the management of flexible labor."
