Health Carousel Invests in Lucidity to Enhance Healthcare Experience
FREMONT, CA: Health Carousel, a leading developer of healthcare workforce solutions, recently acquired Lucidity, a technology platform provider, connecting job-seeking physicians with medical practices with vacancies. The acquisition is aimed at improving the experience of physicians. The integration will allow physicians to choose between full-service concierge and digital experience when seeking temporary positions.
Health Carousel is based in Cincinnati, Ohio and operates a global healthcare staffing business. The company is looking forward to addressing the short-term and long-term staffing problems faced by healthcare organizations. It also aims to alleviate the challenges faced by patients in gaining access to qualified healthcare attention.
The collaboration is designed to streamline the task of connecting medical practices seeking temporary staff with prospective employees. The technology platform of Lucidity utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) to enhance the decisions of medical practices. The agreement allows Lucidity to function independently even after the acquisition. The technology provider will integrate with Health Carousel Locums Network (HCLN) to enhance its omnichannel offering. According to the staffing industry analysts, HCLN is one of the largest temporary physician staffing companies in the country.
The digital transformation is changing industries across all fields, and healthcare workforce platforms are no exception. As consumers expect convenience and practical tools to interact with companies, the service providers will have to up their game. The agreement between Health Carousel and Lucidity will allow the physicians to choose their preferred service, either an optimized concierge option or a digital self-service option.
The investment by Health Carousel fits its objective of improving lives and enhancing healthcare work. The current approach of temporarily assigning physicians to any medical practices without an efficient assignment method has dissatisfied many. Hence, physicians seeking temporary work need a seamless digital solution that can help them in finding the right assignment for them.
The futuristic vision and efficient leadership of Health Carousel will help Lucidity in enhancing their services and providing physicians with more control over their temporary assignments. The expertise of Health Carousel, combined with the technology-driven innovation of Lucidity will help in taking the staffing platform to the next level.
