hello, we’re uPaged
uPaged was born of an idea that there had to be a better way for great nurses to get great nursing jobs when they want; and for quality healthcare organisations to find quality nurses quickly. since then, uPaged has expanded across a range of healthcare workers
Gig work has been around for decades in healthcare, however, the tech that had raised the bar for work in other industries had failed to make it to healthcare. Until now
Putting the heart back into healthcare by:
‘Think Amazon, but for healthcare workforce. And it’s a bit like TripAdvisor and Hinge meeting Uber in a mash-up with the traditional nursing agency model, but better’
“A few years ago, I was working full-time hours, 3 days a week, as a Registered Nurse and Intensive Care Specialist. For the previous 8 years, I’d been supplementing my income with agency nursing work and I had started to feel unfulfilled. I wanted to make a greater impact. I’d also repeatedly observed the disconnect – as agency nurse and ward nurse – between agencies, nurses, hospital and patients.
An interesting dynamic played out each time an agency nurse arrived on shift which didn’t make sense to me. There was no value – for nurse, hospital, nursing agency or patient.
I was also acutely aware that hospitals were paying hefty fees for nurses and yet they had little or no control over who they were allocated by their agency, and therefore they couldn’t effectively utilise the unique skills and experience of their agency nurses.
Nurses I spoke to complained of frequent agency cancellations, a lack of respect for their skills, no trust from nursing peers on agency shifts, and allocations to patients with conditions that they had no experience with.
I established uPaged to solve all these problems.
uPaged puts control and choice over healthcare workforce back in the hands of clinicians, eases the financial burden for healthcare organisations and providers, and increases transparency for frontline healthcare workforce by showcasing their skills and experience.”
