Spans Human Capital Management from Hiring to Healthcare Coverage for Employees
onDiem today announces the launch of its new platform connecting dental practices and dental professionals to meet real-time staffing needs. Able to serve employers and employees in all 50 states, onDiem eliminates staffing compliance burdens by offering pre-vetted employees, who are covered by malpractice and workers’ comp insurance, and have the option to participate in a group healthcare plan after working just one shift.
Designed to help practices resolve staffing shortfalls, optimize production and increase revenue, onDiem’s on-demand staffing platform connects dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants and front office professionals with both temporary and permanent staffing opportunities. With a free account, practices can create posts for new temp shifts, search for professionals in their area, and communicate with candidates directly. onDiem eliminates staffing compliance burdens by offering pre-vetted employees, who are covered by malpractice and workers’ comp insurance. Its national footprint makes onDiem an ideal choice for single source staffing across multiple states.
onDiem distinguishes itself from other staffing platforms that merely enroll contractors by classifying its pool of temporary staff as onDiem employees. Not only does this solve the complex challenge of employee misclassification, it also allows professionals to take advantage of employer-paid taxes, insurance coverage, and healthcare benefits without sacrificing scheduling and rate flexibility. Access to the healthcare plan is a significant value to a professional class that is often at the mercy of part-time policies. Most dental practices fall under the small business category of less than 50 employees and, typically, are only open four days a week, creating a unique labor pool of part-time employees who are often left uncovered. For a reasonable weekly premium, onDiem dental professionals start a six-week span of coverage after just one shift. If they don’t work again for five weeks, coverage expires, but if the need for medical care arises before the cut-off, employees can just opt to pay back those weeks’ premiums. Like the workforce it serves, the onDiem plan is flexible.
“Through our app, we provide a solution to the dental community that is truly a win-win, increasing quality of care for patients, revenue for practices, and peace of mind for professionals,” said Joe Fogg, CEO of onDiem. “Technology makes the alignment of employee availability and practice needs easier, but we knew that true innovation in the space needed to be about more than good code. Extending healthcare benefits is the right thing to do because it re-centers dental professionals as healthcare providers who shouldn’t need to be distracted by limits to their own coverage when providing care to others.”
