Catholic Health Partners Selects PeopleAnswers to Improve Hiring Decisions and Patient Care
DALLAS --(Business Wire)--
PeopleAnswers and Catholic Health Partners, which operates more than 100
facilities in Ohio and Kentucky, today announced the health system has
signed a three-year software license agreement to use PeopleAnswers'
talent assessment software to help identify and hire its nurses and
administrative staff system wide.
"As one of the largest non-profit health systems in the country, we've
made a commitment to improve the health of our communities - especially
for individuals who are poor and under-served," said Joe Gage, senior
vice president, Human Resources, Catholic Health Partners.
"PeopleAnswers will help us improve and streamline our hiring process
and identify employees who share our passion and commitment to deliver
high quality, cost effective, compassionate care and patient experience."
Catholic Health Partners will initially use PeopleAnswers' employee
assessment software to identify, select and hire nurses in select
facilities as a part of its registered nurse workforce initiative and to
help staff a new facility before expanding to include all nursing and
administrative roles system wide. To help select the best candidate
matches, PeopleAnswers will identify the Behavioral DNA® of
existing employees in these roles. Next, PeopleAnswers will use its
patented approach of creating custom behaviorally based Performance
Profiles aligned with medical outcomes. Other hospital systems have seen
significant improvements in employee productivity and retention as well
as patient care.
Hiring managers will use PeopleAnswers as a guide or interview content,
onboarding, employee development and succession planning. PeopleAnswers
will integrate with the applicant tracking system Catholic Health
Partners currently uses to create a seamless recruitment process.
across the nation prepares for regulatory changes and reform, hospitals
still need to stay laser focused on delivering quality healthcare," said
Gabriel Goncalves, CEO and president, PeopleAnswers. "PeopleAnswers has
the unique ability to help identify, retain and develop first-rate and
diverse talent for each role - for example, determining whether a nurse
is a better fit in the emergency department or the neo-natal unit.
Staffing a great team of nurses is a critical aspect of Catholic Health
Partners' mission and strategic focus."
