ShiftRx is revolutionizing the healthcare staffing landscape, starting in pharmacy. We provide seamless sourcing to integration of temporary healthcare providers. This platform was built by healthcare providers, for providers to empower them to work a more flexible schedule, increase economic opportunities, provide cross-training opportunities in new specialities, initial pathways to licensure, and give them the tools they need to be successful when picking up per diem work or being placed in a new role. We leverage the power of AI to create tailored onboarding modules based on the facilities unique systems, processes, and softwares so our providers know exactly what to expect, and they can instantly cashout after. ShiftRx is the prescription for the healthcare staffing crisis.


Main Points:

  • Current staffing crisis, and landscape for flexibility & pay for pharmacy providers
  • Integration into new settings
  • Initial pathways to licensure, and opening opportunities as the role of a pharmacist progresses
