"May 22, 2018: TEXT MESSAGING OFFERS PHYSICIAN RECRUITERS A MORE DIRECT, EFFICIENT MODE OF PHYSICIAN CONTACT IN FAST-PACED MARKET

New TextMatch Service Enables Hospital Recruiters and Healthcare Employers to Conveniently Recruit Doctors and Advanced Practice Clinicians via Text

New TextMatch Service Enables Hospital Recruiters and Healthcare Employers to Conveniently Recruit Doctors and Advanced Practice Clinicians via Text

St. Louis, MO, May 20, 2018- With the healthcare industry leading the nation's record-low unemployment rates, physician recruitment is as fast-paced and competitive as ever, especially for healthcare employers and their inhouse recruiting team. Healthcare recruiters are increasingly turning to new, more effective uses of technology to contact physicians for practice opportunities in today's intense physician recruiting market. Texting candidates via a new messaging service designed specifically for physician recruitment offers a streamlined, quick way for healthcare employers to reach out to physicians before a competing employer does so. PracticeMatch, a company that provides a leading physician database and other recruiting resources to hospital and healthcare recruiters, has created the industry's first texting program for inhouse recruiters, based on market research and client demand.

"According to our market research, about 80% of physicians reported having received up to 30 contacts from recruiters about practice opportunities in the past 90 days, but only about 15% reported receiving a text message about opportunities," states Mike York, CEO of PracticeMatch. "Text messaging is such a direct, efficient way to reach out to candidates, so we wanted to help staff physician recruiters tap into this convenient mode of communication that is clearly not yet being utilized by many recruiters to its fullest potential."


The new text service is called TextMatch, and is fully integrated into PracticeMatch's other products and services, including their Pinpoint physician database, allowing recruiters to track and report all text messages, as well as to hone in on a precise candidate audience and message them directly about a particular practice opportunity.

In a survey of 1730 physicians conducted in February of 2018, 80% of physicians reported that they would be receptive to text messages from a recruiter. Many survey respondents also reported that they consider texting to be "more convenient" and "more personal" than other common modes of communication such as email, direct mail, or phone calls.

"We are excited to offer recruiters a faster, more personal approach to contacting physicians about the opportunities most suited to their specific career needs," states York. "There is no other product like this on the market for inhouse physician recruiters, and the outstanding functionality of this offering will significantly impact the recruiting process and vastly improve results, by providing another way to conveniently and directly contact candidates."


PracticeMatch also implemented controls in the text messaging application to ensure a positive user experience for candidates, as well as recruiters and employers. TextMatch includes settings and utilization limits to protect candidates from being flooded with too many messages. For example, recruiters must contact physicians and advanced practitioners regarding a specific opportunity, and there are limits to the length and volume of messages sent to each candidate.

Additional features include advanced scheduling of messages, detailed reporting, and search capability for easy access of over 100,000 verified physician mobile numbers and 5,000 advanced practitioners.

PracticeMatch is one of the most established companies serving healthcare employers with recruiting resources including job boards, career fairs, and candidate leads.

"Apr 4, 2018: PINPOINT DATABASE BY PRACTICEMATCH EXCEEDS 350,000 INTERVIEWED PHYSICIANS

Total Verified Healthcare Provider Count Exceeds 1.5 Million, Includes 350,000 Interviewed Physicians

Total Verified Healthcare Provider Count Exceeds 1.5 Million, Includes 350,000 Interviewed Physicians

St. Louis, MO, April 4, 2017- The healthcare industry's leading physician candidate database, Pinpoint by PracticeMatch, reached a new milestone of 350,000 interviewed, pre-screened physicians. PracticeMatch initially established the database in 1989 to provide healthcare systems with a unique, cost-effective alternative to outsourcing their physician recruiting to a search firm. Since then, the database is updated on an ongoing basis with new candidates and information. Engaging with Pinpoint physicians allows hospital recruiters and healthcare hiring managers to maintain control of the recruiting process and avoid placement fees, with the benefit of convenient access to 350,000 interviewed physicians, plus a total of more than 1.5 million total verified providers via licensed databases. This also includes more than 320,000 advanced practice clinicians.

"Hospital staff recruiters and healthcare hiring managers have relied on the unrivaled quality of our Pinpoint physician database for nearly 30 years," states Mike York, CEO of PracticeMatch. "Pinpoint is the only physician recruiting database with 350,000 interviewed physicians, which saves precious time that in-house recruiters would otherwise spend pre-screening candidates themselves. Our product allows physician recruiters to efficiently and effectively pinpoint the best physician candidates for their facility's particular hiring needs."


PracticeMatch helps physician recruiters find the best candidate match for each of their openings by providing the industry's largest database of verified, pre-screened physicians and advanced practice healthcare professionals. A team of professionally-trained PracticeMatch interviewers contacts each Pinpoint physician to discuss and record their preferences regarding practice settings, geographic location, along with gathering details about each provider's professional history, among other things. Healthcare employers then simply purchase access to the database, so that their hiring managers or hospital recruiters may utilize it at their convenience to contact the candidates that best fit their needs.


"This Pinpoint milestone is significant in the industry because it is such a substantial number of providers for physician recruiters to have at their fingertips. No other company offers access to more than 1.5 million verified providers, and certainly not with the level of information and detail that the Pinpoint database provides on its 350,000 physicians," York explains.


PracticeMatch will be celebrating this exciting milestone with special programs for physician throughout the upcoming months. For more information and details about how your healthcare facility may obtain access to Pinpoint physicians, and other verified healthcare candidates, please contact Mike York at Information@PracticeMatch.com
