On January 19, 2023, ShiftMed, an on-demand workforce platform providing labor across the healthcare system, announced a technology partnership with UKG, a provider of payroll, HR, and workforce management solutions.
With this partnership, companies using ShiftMed and UKG Dimensions can access ShiftMed's 350,000+ contract workers within UKG and schedule all personnel using a single system. With ShiftMed and UKG, when a ShiftMed healthcare professional claims a facility's open shift, that credentialed worker is automatically added as an employee within UKG and assigned to the schedule. This removes the need for a UKG Dimensions administrator to enter employee data or update the schedule manually.
UKG solutions are built on the FleX platform. FleX by UKG is an advanced technology platform specifically designed to support workplaces. FleX Flow, a versatile API framework, anchors UKG solutions in the workflow where people require them the most. It enables businesses to connect established IT with emerging applications to enhance the workplace.

CipherHealth | January 06, 2023
CipherHealth, a leader in patient engagement technology and communication solutions, recently teamed up with SADA, an award-winning Google Cloud Partner, to use Google Cloud's Looker to collect socioeconomic data to improve patient care.
With this new feature, CipherHealth aims to empower healthcare leaders by enabling them to collect large volumes of data and assist patients and medical professionals at each point of the care journey.
Earlier, CipherHealth's platform gave doctors and nurses complete conversational and clinical information about each patient. It worked with SADA, a company that knows how to set up and run Google Cloud's analytics platform Looker, to add self-service analytics to the platform and make it more useful. With the help of Looker Embedded Analytics, CipherHealth has made it easier for its clients to access this data for analysis and visualization at any time during the patient's life.
As a result of the partnership, CipherHealth's clients, which include 500 hospitals across the country, will now have access to patient data about social determinants of health (SDOH). Also, they can use in-built analytics to divide patient groups and send personalized messages to each of them separately.
With this information, CipherHealth's clients can zero in on a specific patient and find out what kind of treatment they need, along with any special accommodations (like if they have trouble making appointments).
CipherHealth is HIPAA-compliant, meaning it may safely analyze and transfer clients' protected health information (PHI) over the internet.
The company believes combining SADA with Google Cloud can give its clients a new view of their patient populations. It will also allow the company to make changes to its care delivery that are good for patients. In line with this, SADA said that the integration of Looker from Google Cloud improves the patient experience for CipherHealth and its clients.
CipherHealth is a proven technology solutions partner dedicated to improving patient communication and care. Since 2009, the company has helped build the market for patient engagement by making innovative tools that help providers give excellent care. The range of patient engagement programs from CipherHealth sets new standards for care and provides healthcare businesses with the tools they need to have meaningful conversations with their patients.
