For staffing agencies filling nursing and allied health shortages caused by COVID-19

If you are a healthcare staffing agency placing nurses and/or allied health professionals in shortages caused by COVID-19, there are a few way we can help. Free of charge, no strings attached.

Mobile-friendly software to prepare nurses and allied health professionals for onboarding

Kamana builds user-focused healthcare staffing software for staffing agencies. At a high level, our software enables agencies to provide nurses and allied health professionals with a mobile friendly and easy to use portal for applications, onboarding, credential management, form filling, e-signatures, and communication. Simply put, healthcare pros with a Kamana profile are more prepared to be screened, submitted, and onboarded.

In an effort to help your staffing agency combat COVID-19 staffing efficiently, we are offering healthcare employers a version of Kamana, at no cost. This will enable nurses and allied health professionals to self prepare to be screened and onboarded, and expedite the submission process for your agency. We can implement very quickly, and work with your teams of healthcare professionals to successfully complete their profiles.

No strings attached. Simply send an email to crisisresponse@kamanahealth.com, and we’ll be in touch.

Connections to nurses & allied health professionals in our network

We have a network of nurses and allied health professionals independent of those that work with our staffing agency customers that use Kamana to manage their credentials and professional documentation. Many have let us know they are available to pick up a travel contract or extra shifts in their area in response to COVID-19. We would like to connect these healthcare pros with jobs that meet their needs.

If you have established needs in specific locations of the country and would like Kamana to match those needs against our network of independent healthcare professionals, we will do so in a meaningful manor. The location and general requirements of that need are required, as we will not be making connections at random.

Provide the following information via email to crisisresponse@kamanahealth.com, or fill out this short form, to start receiving connections. 

  • Agency name and website
  • Point of contact email and phone number
  • Location(s) (city and state) you’re staffing for the most
  • Profession(s) needed the most
  • Any general requirements needed up front in addition to those we have directed healthcare professionals to complete at the top of this post?

Please do not hesitate to reach out if either of these options would be helpful in your time of need. We are here with you. And we are here to help.

Staffing Agency Disclaimer: This is no way a lead generation source and is only to connect healthcare professionals with critical staffing needs that A) match their qualifications and B) are in locations that they have expressed willingness to serve. Agencies found violating this policy will be immediately removed.
