The Ideal Workforce Partner

Clients and Consultants are Looking for Three Flavors of Workforce Options

Now more than ever, healthcare providers need support from outside health delivery experts to meet the time sensitive and high visibility initiatives assigned to their IT, clinical or revenue departments. While hiring a regular, full-time employee might be the preferred model for your open Informaticist position, the availability of qualified local resources may prohibit you from hiring in a timely manner.

Not All IT Consultants Are Equal

There are two primary classifications of IT consultants depending upon their level of engagement and personal interest in the project. The most desired consultant is focused on the client’s success and is motivated to perform well on a personal level. The highly engaged consultant will also interact and lead the current team, train and teach others and help ease pressure. A disengaged consultant is only available when asked for assistance, little or no involvement with teaching and training. First has developed a stable of senior consultants who take pride in delivering high value for their client.

Meeting Today’s Workforce Needs

To address our clients ever evolving workforce requirements, First developed a flexible model called FirstFLEX allowing providers to move between three different staffing scenarios with ease. First will place an experienced advisor into the position quickly, providing the advisor with the option to transition into regular employment after you and the advisor gauge the fit.

FirstADVISE is our premium consulting services solution, offering you an immediate return on investment by placing a highly experienced advisor that provides value from day one.

FirstTEMP is a highly flexible solution, allowing you to immediately fill your vacancy with an exceptional advisor who is well versed in the domain where you need to bolster experience and efficiency without delay.

FirstEMPLOY is the solution that will solve your employee vacancy challenges. With one of the most extensive networks of healthcare IT, clinical and revenue professionals, First will help you fill those analyst, informatics, project management, director, and leadership vacancies that stagnate your enterprise IT initiatives and impact your budget.
