Cerebro is a SaaS enabled marketplace to disrupt the traditional means through which healthcare organizations connect with clinicians for contingent work.

Currently, all hospitals experience acute and intermittent nurse shortages to some degree—every shift, every day. Healthcare organizations rely on nurse staffing agencies to supplement in-house teams to help care for patients. At a typical community hospital, there are contracts with 25 agencies taking (on average) a 35% commission on rates that are supposed to go to nursing care. Larger or more complex hospitals can have north of 60 agencies contracted.

The process is fraught with inefficiencies. From a customer perspective, these inefficiencies are very expensive ones, from both a spend and administrative standpoint. However, that has not stopped the growth in demand, which swelled to $19B in spend in 2015 alone. It is expected to grow at a nearly 10 percent clip annually over the next 5 years.

Cerebro shortens time to procurement to nearly zero; tracks and delivers quality nurses on time; and makes supplemental staffing more capital efficient by better utilizing each dollar of spend from the healthcare organization. Cerebro's commission rates start as low as $10/hour, and the subscription price for hospitals is flexible based on the size of the opportunity. With continued growth and organizational penetration, Cerebro will develop and acquire tools to help hospitals manage internal staffing to complement our contingent solutions. Interfacing with existing electronic staffing solutions, an operational data feed, and environmental variables will inform a large-scale machine learning prediction engine to push real-time decision support to hospital management.

Cerebro has been developed and is operated by an experienced team of healthcare executives, technical experts, and clinicians, solving problems that we encountered in our own professional lives.
