The healthcare workforce in the United States needs to be stabilized as the country faces a major danger to the quality of life for many individuals. There's no time to waste in reviving our care culture, which is in crisis.
FREMONT, CA: "America is facing a big challenge threatening the quality of life for many people, and the healthcare workforce needs to stabilize," says Brandi Kurtyka, CEO of MissionCare Collective and its growing suite of brands. Many factors contribute to the need to improve healthcare quality, including boosting the accountability of health practitioners and managers, optimizing the use of effective care and improving results, avoiding medical errors, and aligning care to what patients want. To meet the growing demand for better training, engagement, and retention of health care workers, MissionCare Collective, the new parent company of myCNAjobs and the nation's largest network of front-line care workers, expands its portfolio.
A shortage of healthcare workers, lack of upward mobility, a lack of engagement and burnout among workers, and a lack of trustworthy care for those who need it contribute to poor outcomes in the healthcare system.
"The bottom line is that everyone suffers—the worker, the employer, and the patient," adds Kurtyka. "After spending 10 years in the trenches serving the industry, we knew something needed to change and we plan to build bridges to help the industry do just that."
CoachUp Care and MissionCare are two new solutions that are accessible and will continue to be developed to meet industry concerns.
CoachUp Care is a first-of-its-kind platform that unifies training, staff engagement, recognition, and retention resources. The platform is surrounded by best practices, data, and testing to determine knowledge competence, employee engagement, and turnover. It will soon be available to a wider market. For the time being, the platform is exclusively available via invitation, select networks, and members of myCNAjobs.
Additionally, MissionCare will act as a conduit for connecting workforce, providers, and trainers to address state-level systemic labor challenges. Additional announcements will be made when they become available.
"There's no single technology that can change the culture of care," adds Kurtyka. "However, bringing people and companies together that envision a brighter future can make real and lasting change possible."
