Aya Healthcare Launches Travel Nurse Demand Indexes To Help Hospitals Make More Informed Labor Pricing Decisions

San Diego, CA /PRNewswire/ - Aya Healthcare recently launched a set of demand indexes to help hospitals make more informed travel nurse staffing and pricing decisions.

The Aya 3000 index compiles data from over 3,000 healthcare facilities and is the first publicly-available data to assess fluctuation in overall travel nurse demand by geography and specialty.

As the second largest travel nurse staffing provider in the United States based on the number of clinicians currently on assignment, Aya has wide visibility into pay rates and client demand in every geographic market in the country.

Many hospitals currently pay elevated and crisis rates for contingent labor. These new indexes help enable hospitals to determine whether or not the higher rates are justified.

In addition to the launch of the demand indexes, which are publicly available at AyaHealthcare.com/workforce-solutions, Aya also provides granular analysis for healthcare facilities which includes a fair market rate analysis for comparable facilities in need of comparable specialties. Market rate transparency allows hospitals to quickly and confidently make informed contingent labor staffing decisions so they can provide exceptional patient care while being fiscally responsible.

"We want to make sure our clients have granular data tailored for their needs and geography," says Peter Kaufman, VP Workforce Strategy for Aya. "This information helps hospitals make intelligent decisions about their contingent labor staffing based on geography, pay rate and competing demand."
