Urgent Response Team & Efforts

Managing the crisis

Updated March 4th

As the nation continues to battle the outbreak of COVID-19, we have taken several steps to support our employees, clients, providers, and other stakeholders.

We are in close communication with our providers regarding their availability and risk factors and we have a large number of clinicians who are ready and willing to help during this crisis.

Information for Healthcare Organizations

Business Continuity

While the COVID-19 outbreak continues, we remain fully operational. If you have immediate staffing needs, please click here.

We are relying on guidance from federal and state authorities and are prepared to make real-time decisions as changing conditions warrant.

Clinician Availability and Screening

We are staying in close communication with our clinicians throughout this situation. We are engaged with them in open dialogue regarding their availability and risk factors, and we are actively working to identify clinicians who are prepared to help in this moment of crisis.

Specifically, we have prepared a list of screening questions for all clinicians scheduled to start their assignments in the coming days and weeks.

Licensing & Credentialing

To stay on top of rapidly changing state and federal regulations, we have established a dedicated COVID-19 task force within our Licensing & Credentialing team. They work directly with state boards and organizations for the most up-to-date information.

We suggest that healthcare organizations review their emergency contingency plans to ensure that there are necessary measures in place to fast track the onboarding process.

Information for Clinicians

We have clients across the country that are looking for qualified clinicians who are ready and willing to help in this situation. Many states are temporarily waving licensing requirements in response to COVID-19, which makes it possible for us to get clinicians assisting patients faster.

If you would like to discuss what you can do to help, please let us know here or reach out to your recruiter directly. You can also call us directly at 888-693-9751.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will update you with additional information if necessary. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your Barton account manager or recruiter.

Stay healthy and safe.
