What should I look for in a travel healthcare company?


When choosing a staffing company, travel healthcare professionals and clients should look for the same qualities in a firm. From the staffing firm's perspective, the industry is a two way street. Both travel healthcare professionals and clients must be provided with the services they need in order for the company to be successful. To help you choose a firm you feel comfortable with here are some guidelines to follow:

  • Is the company certified by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO)?
     
  • Does the company provide professional liability and workers compensation insurance for the travel healthcare professionals they place?
     
  • What is the company's history? Do they have the financial resources to pay their travel healthcare professionals regularly?
  • Does the company offer the services necessary to ensure all details are taken care of when the travel healthcare professionals arrive to work (i.e. credentialing, benefits, and housing arrangements)?
  • Is the company a member of the NATHO (National Association of Travel Healthcare Organizations)? NATHO is dedicated to establishing a set of service standards among Travel Healthcare companies. The members of NATHO are held to a strict code of ethics for your benefit. 

In addition to these guidelines, the firm you choose should place a high priority on quality service. This means: a professional staff to provide you with personal attention; comprehensive service offerings such as payroll, travel, and housing departments; qualified travel healthcare professionals who meet strict credentialing standards; and most importantly, enough assignments for travel healthcare professionals to choose from and enough travel healthcare professionals for clients to choose from.
