Denodo Enables Fastaff and U.S. Nursing to Help Meet Hospital Demands for Specialized Nurses with Enhanced Velocity.

Palo Alto, CA, August 2, 2016Denodo, the leader in data virtualization software, today announced that Fastaff Travel Nursing and U.S. Nursing Corporation have selected the Denodo Platform for Data Virtualization to accommodate rapid growth and a need to find innovative technology partners to empower enhanced efficiency. Denodo integrates disparate data sources to enrich an individual nurse profile record, allowing Fastaff and U.S. Nursing to quickly identify the nurse’s capabilities and match him or her to urgent needs at hospitals around the country.

As the pioneer and industry leader in Rapid Response® travel nurse staffing, we own a unique market position placing nurses in ten days or less,” said Allison Beer, CEO of Fastaff and U.S. Nursing. "Data virtualization adds automation to our process by matching well qualified nurses with hospitals to ensure uninterrupted patient care. As innovators in this space, we are committed to using cutting-edge technology in delivering quality patient care where it is urgently needed and, after careful evaluation, we selected the Denodo Platform because of its superior performance, capabilities and technology innovation.”

Hospitals rely on Fastaff to fill temporary travel nursing positions in highly specialized areas such as pediatric and critical care acuities. Fastaff sources experienced nurses that meet the specific profile hospitals require in very short periods of time due to the urgent nature of the order. However, as one of the fastest growing healthcare staffing companies in America, Fastaff had to ensure that their current innovative processes were scalable for the growth they have been experiencing.

Through business intelligence and data analysis, Fastaff recognized that the data virtualization solution offered by Denodo could provide the necessary boost needed to create better healthcare delivery in the U.S. and allow hospitals to meet the demands of patients and communities nationwide. To accomplish this, Denodo creates an abstraction layer above the data sources, assembles a single view of the nurses, and feeds the information to a reporting tool which enables Fastaff to quickly find the most qualified candidate that can provide the necessary care.

On the recruiting side, Fastaff employs marketing automation technology to generate leads and capture engagement activity. By integrating the engagement activity data into the nurse profile record, Denodo’s data virtualization technology helps Fastaff to hone marketing campaigns to deliver smart messages to the right nurse, at the right time, thereby optimizing digital marketing ROI.

In the future, Fastaff intends to use data science to push the boundaries of current recruiting methods. Beer adds, “We want to be able to mine volumes of data and forecast the demand for nurses in a particular specialty and during a particular time. Big data and Denodo’s data virtualization technology will help us to accomplish this strategy.”

“We are excited to have been selected by Fastaff to swiftly integrate nurse and employer data, which are dispersed across multiple systems,” said Ravi Shankar, CMO at Denodo. “Fastaff and U.S. Nursing’s impending use of predictive analytics to anticipate the demand for nurses even before they occur is avant-garde, and Denodo’s advanced data virtualization features such as best-in-class performance optimization techniques and self-service search and data discovery capabilities are well suited to meet these needs by accelerating the process from weeks to days.”
