"Clinician job finding platform.
DirectShifts is an online marketplace that connects doctors / nurses to hospitals / clinics for short term shift work. The company is bringing liquidity and transparency into the $15B healthcare temporary staffing market in the US. DirectShifts is solving a pressing need in US healthcare as 95% of hospitals and clinics hire temporary clinical staff / contractors to fill staffing needs. Current healthcare temp agencies are inconvenient, expensive, and opaque due to extensive red tape and high middlemen margins. DirectShifts simplifies this process and cuts out the middlemen by allowing hospitals and clinics to hire clinicians directly, leading to 20% higher pay for physicians and at least 40% lower cost for hospitals / employers.
DirectShifts is currently on a $5M annual revenue run rate (with 15% margins) and are growing rapidly. Its pre-seed round ($1.2M before YC) included top angels including the former CFO of Epic EMR and board member of the Federal Reserve. DirectShifts is led by an experienced serial entrepreneur who previously founded Nouvou, which provided security solutions for the healthcare industry and was also backed by Y Combinator."
