1. You'll have specialty-specific points of contact
VISTA is organized by specialty teams, giving you a group of experts to handle your locum tenens contract.
2. We build a detailed clinical practice description
We will ask you the questions necessary to build a clear picture of the opening and the type of physician, nurse practitioner or physician assistant you need. Review our quality assurance/risk management client screening process.
3. We present appropriate CVs for a precise match
As we identify physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants with the skills, experience and time available to meet your needs, we will present their CVs for your approval. You are under no obligation until you accept a provider for specific dates. Review the VISTA Locum Tenens candidate screening process in detail.
4. We expedite credentialing and privileging
We provide as much documentation as possible to assist with your own credentialing and medical staff privileging.
5. We provide comprehensive professional liability insurance
VISTA Staffing Solutions provides professional liability insurance through our A+ rated carrier, CNA, for every hour a physician, nurse practitioner or physician assistant works through us. Our volume and positive claims history make malpractice coverage more affordable. The policy has individual limits of $1 million per claim/$3 million annual aggregate per provider. Because it is a claims-made policy, our coverage is continually updated to reflect economic trends, changes in the market, and shifting national health policy. Our physicians are covered whenever a claim arises from work arranged by VISTA, even if they are no longer active members of the VISTA group.
6. We get the physician, NP or PA licensed in time
We understand the licensing requirements and timeframes in each state, and will manage the licensing process to ensure that your VISTA Locum Tenens physician, NP or PA is licensed in time for your assignment. We pay for this licensing for the physicians, NPs and PAs who work with us.
7. We coordinate travel, housing, and transportation
VISTA has a full-service in-house travel team that works directly with the physician, nurse practitioner or physician assistant to plan cost-effective travel. We are also happy to coordinate housing and local transportation, or you may do it if you prefer.
8. We ensure accurate billing and provider compensation
VISTA providers fill out a work record every two weeks, which is signed off by your designee so there are no surprises. All of the revenue generated by the physician, NP or PA stays with your organization, so the service generally pays for itself.
9. We follow up
Once an assignment begins, we will check in with both you and the provider to make sure everything is going well. We also conduct post-assignment evaluations with both you and the provider.
