The deal will expand HealthcareSource's staffing footprint to some 3,300 clients – including more than half of U.S. hospitals, officials say.

HealthcareSource, which offers talent management and staffing tools for the health industry, is acquiring Centricity Contingent Staffing from GE Healthcare for an undisclosed sum.

With the addition, HealthcareSource will broaden its footprint across the industry with 3,300 clients, including more than half of U.S. hospitals, officials say. It will manage contingent placements for 40 percent of all healthcare shift staffing and 12 percent of all contracts.

Centricity, formerly API Healthcare's Clearview Staffing Software, offers capabilities like onboarding and competency validation; worker profile and credential management; client profile and contract management; per diem and travel staffing workflow; compliance validation and enforcement; payroll and billing processing; operational and gross financial analytics and more.

"With this acquisition, we will be able to provide solutions across the full talent spectrum within healthcare, addressing the needs of both direct healthcare employers and staffing organizations in attracting, sourcing, placing, developing and continuously retaining highly engaged people," said J.P. Fingado, CEO of HealthcareSource, in a statement.

Upon closing of the deal, expected to be completed by the end of Q1, the technology suite will be rebranded as HealthcareSource Contingent Talent Management. Mike Wejrowski, formerly of API healthcare, will return to serve as general manager.

"We will be integrating our technology platforms to allow staffing clients to tap into HealthcareSource's recruitment marketing, behavioral assessments, and learning offerings, adding new and complementary capabilities to clients' existing staffing and onboarding solution," said Wejrowski.
