WOBURN, Mass. and DRAPER, Utah, May 12, 2010 — HealthcareSource®, the leading provider of talent management software solutions to the healthcare industry, and HireVue, the number one provider of video interviewing solutions, today announced that they have formed a strategic partnership. HealthcareSource will become the exclusive reseller of HireVue to U.S. healthcare providers and will integrate the software into Position Manager®, its industry leading applicant-tracking solution used at over 1,000 hospitals. The solution will be marketed as HealthcareSource Interview ManagerSM powered by HireVue.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports the healthcare industry will generate 3.2 million new wage and salary jobs between 2008 and 2018, more than any other industry, largely due to growth in the elderly population.
“While Healthcare remains at the top of the hiring market, healthcare providers have been forced to pull back in response to the recession,” said Peter Segall, CEO and President, HealthcareSource. “The demand is still there but the recruiting budgets are limited. However, with the economy showing positive growth, the healthcare reform bill adding millions of potential patients to the mix and no change in elderly population growth, the pressure is building for new ideas that reduce recruiting costs. Our customers are asking us for help. We knew this problem couldn’t be solved with traditional thinking, that’s why we turned to HireVue. They are changing the game and our customers will benefit with competitive recruiting advantages.”
HealthcareSource Interview ManagerSM powered by HireVue is a video job interview platform that allows employers to dramatically improve the interview process by using video interviews to create a historical record of the interview that can be reviewed at any time and compared against other candidates. Organizations can drastically cut time and cost from their recruiting processes while giving hiring teams deeper insight into candidate’s strengths and weaknesses. The result is improved candidate screening, reduced interview time, reduced recruiting travel expense, and more consistent, compliant and effective interviews.
“The bottom line for healthcare providers is that, combined with Position Manager, HireVue is ideally suited to help them deal with the pressures of talent management in today’s healthcare environment,” said HireVue CEO, Mark Newman. “HealthcareSource is a true innovator for talent management in healthcare. This partnership is proof that they not only hear their customers, but they are keeping pace with the changing face of talent management in this evolving space.”
