Freelance Physician is an innovative technological solution to the physician staffing shortage. Our online social network of freelance providers work together to service the staffing needs of medical communities ranging in size from critical access hospitals to the largest of health systems across the country. The model is simple: Connect the highest quality freelance physicians to the available work that is within driving distance to their homes. The result is a dramatic improvement in a hospital's response to such challenges as patient surge, leaves of absence, or any temporary staffing need. All of our local freelance physicians are available for permanent hire, at no cost to the hospital who uses them. We are experts at creating and managing these float pools, and cover malpractice insurance as well as payroll responsibilities, thus avoiding any misclassification issues a hospital might face for maintaining their own per diem clinicians.
