Frequently Asked Questions

The healthcare staffing market is complicated. We're here to simplify it for you.

What does it cost?

Our MSP comes at no cost to your facility.

Can you provide permanent staff?

Yes, we can.

If something goes wrong, how will you support me?

Trusted Managed Services is Joint Commission Certified, so we will handle everything should something go wrong.

What kind of facilities do you work with?

Trusted Managed Services works with hospitals, long-term care, and rehab centers.

Am I too small to need an MSP?

Due to labor shortages across all industries, facilities are all in competition for the same pool of candidates. It will only benefit you to have as many suppliers and as much help as you can to get the appropriate staffing in place.

What do you do that we don't already do?

Working with an MSP can relieve incredible amounts of administrative burden on your staff while decreasing your contingent labor spend. We accomplish this by providing you one singular point of contact, easy access to billing and timekeeping, compliance outsourcing, a streamlined hiring process, streamlined onboarding, robust and scalable reporting, and more.

Is your pay competitive?

We provide competitive pay, health insurance, and other attractive benefits to contingent staff that will keep you highly competitive with larger facilities or facilities in more populated areas.

What is RPO?

RPO stands for Recruitment Process Outsourcing. As an RPO partner, your facility gains access to our industry specific job boards and costly databases, allowing us to offer roles in your organization directly to qualified clinicians seeking permanent or temporary work in your area.

Do you provide onsite onboarding?

Yes, a representative from our team can be as available as you need them to be.

Can I still use my current vendors?

Our MSP agreement is non-exclusive. TMS believes that facilities should have options and maintain a diverse portfolio of suppliers.

Is there a charge for converting temp staff to full time?

TMS will not charge a fee for converting travelers to staff after 26 weeks of assignment. We understand the predicament that healthcare facilities are facing in this labor market and our goal is to alleviate it as much as possible.

Does your VMS integrate with my timekeeping system?

Yes, our VMS can seamlessly integrate with all major ERP/HRIS and various other third-party systems.

What is an MSP?

A healthcare MSP will take over your entire recruitment, onboarding, and management process, from beginning to end. An MSP is vital to your organization, as it automates and offloads much of the time consuming and labor-intensive tasks that bog down your human resources and administrative staff. Your MSP partner will help you reduce costs, improve processes, and automate and manage tasks that hospitals, clinics and facilities once had to manage all by themselves.

How do I access my reports/data?

Reports and data can be accessed through our VMS. All reports are customizable and can be generated and sent on a recurring basis if desired. We provide access to reporting in real time.
Some examples of reporting include:

  • Total contract labor spend by quarter
  • Time to fill certain orders
  • Average length of assignments
  • Hours/spend per unit
  • Hours/spend per shift
  • Hours/spend per nurse

Do I need to use contingent staff?

Using contingent staff allows you to keep extra staff on during busy seasons, flu season, the winter months, etc. and reduce staffing costs when the additional staff is not needed.
