- Quality providers. Only work with locum tenens agencies that take the time recruit the best locums and complete thorough reference checks of each of the providers they work with. This will give you piece of mind that the locum you are using is top-notch without having to spend hours sifting through CVs.
- Experienced credentialing and licensing teams. Locum tenens agencies that have a team of professionals that handle all the credentialing and licensing paperwork are worth their weight in gold. People in those roles know what documents are needed to get a locum in your organization as quickly as possible. Some will even fill out the necessary forms, so all you need to do is review and sign them.
- Travel coordinators. Chances are your locum isn’t going to be from the area. Travel coordinators put together comprehensive travel itineraries, complete with rental cars and accommodations, so your locum arrives safely at your organization ready to work.
- Ongoing support. Your relationship with a locum tenens agency shouldn’t end once the physician or NP arrives at your door. If issues arise, you should feel confident that you can contact any member of the support team for any reason throughout the assignment.
