Aya Healthcare’s Qualivis Acquires the Staffing Division of Associated Purchasing Services – a Joint Venture of the Kansas and Missouri Hospital Associations
Qualivis, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Aya Healthcare, has completed the purchase of the Associated Purchasing Services (APS) Staffing Program. APS is a joint venture of the Kansas Hospital Association and the Missouri Hospital Association. The acquisition closed on June 27th, 2020.
APS CEO, Dennis George, spoke to the importance of this transaction for his organization’s members: “Today’s volatile healthcare environment requires hospitals to have the capacity to flex to meet the continuously shifting demands for skilled workers – be it on the front lines of care or in essential administrative and operational roles. The capability to manage one’s workforce adeptly may prove to be the single most important factor separating those facilities that prosper from those that struggle. That’s why APS is delighted to join forces with Aya and Qualivis to offer the healthcare industry’s most robust complement of staffing services and workforce solutions.”
Current APS clients already use technology from Symmetry, a recently acquired Aya Healthcare subsidiary. By joining Qualivis, APS member hospitals will have access to additional software tools and services to streamline the entire contract staffing process through Aya’s robust technology platform. Enhancements include:
- Robust N Tier software architecture
- Integrated timekeeping
- Mobile applications
- Consolidated invoicing
- Enhanced reporting and key performance indicator reports
- Enhanced candidate vetting and credentialing processes
- Access to IRP and per diem solutions
- Access to locum tenens coverage
APS leadership will continue to play a key, strategic role in ensuring its members have access to the right staffing and workforce solutions at the right time and the right cost.
