Press Release: Aya Healthcare Acquires Winnow AI, a Data Science Driven Platform to Recruit Passive Physicians
Aya Healthcare, the largest healthcare talent software and staffing company in the United States, today announced the acquisition of Winnow AI, a data science-driven solution that unlocks predictive physician insights and untapped connections to bolster an organization’s provider recruitment and retention strategies. Amidst a historic provider shortage, Winnow AI combines artificial intelligence with business intelligence to help organizations tap into a unique source of passive physicians who are likely to relocate to their region. Winnow’s AI model identifies the best predictive matches for each open role and surfaces relationships of potential candidates with existing providers. The model also predicts which physicians are likely to change jobs and where they are most likely to relocate. These insights equip medical leaders and in-house recruiters to drive novel candidate options, referrals, and create perfectly aligned provider teams, leading to faster, more efficient physician recruitment.
Winnow AI will operate within Aya’s Provider Solutions division. Healthcare organizations need qualified recruitment pipelines and advanced retention strategies as provider shortages are expected to increase over the next decade. Winnow AI complements Aya’s DocCafe brand, the premier physician talent acquisition platform with the nation’s largest pool of active job seekers. Aya’s Provider Solutions division will now be able to offer both active and passive job seeker recruitment platforms. The division also enables healthcare organizations to hire locum providers and manage their provider recruitment and engagement through Aya Connect.
“We’re able to help healthcare organizations effectively fill their open provider positions by offering Winnow AI to identify passive job seekers and DocCafe to effectively recruit active physician job seekers,” said Alan Braynin, president and CEO of Aya Healthcare. “This acquisition is an example of our never-ending quest to deliver innovative solutions to our clients that create greater efficiencies, generate cost savings, and improve access to care for the communities they serve.”
