PHOENIX, AZ, SEPTEMBER 5, 2023 –OpusVi, a leading workforce development solutions provider that exclusively enables healthcare systems and organizations to upskill and retain top talents, is announcing its strategic collaboration with Premier, Inc., a leading technology-driven healthcare improvement company, to provide Premier’s vast network of 4,350 U.S. health systems and 300,000+ other providers with a wide range of healthcare workforce development solutions to help support retention, reduce costs, boost engagement and enable continuity of patient care. 

According to the American Hospital Association, by 2025 there will be a shortage of up to 3.2 million healthcare workers caused by pandemic burnout, high turnover rates and staffing shortages that could threaten access to care within the communities they serve. As the demand for healthcare services is rapidly increasing, exceptional patient care hinges on high-quality workforce development training that will equip healthcare professionals with the ability to interpret complex problems and find solutions. These factors result in a need for better access to centralized professional development services that help fill in-demand positions as well as retain, upskill and reskill talent. 

“As we navigate the healthcare industry’s ever-evolving landscape, we recognize true innovation and progress must be achieved through collaborative efforts,” said Andy Brailo, Chief Customer Officer at Premier. “Our initiative with OpusVi complements and amplifies Premier’s robust workforce management consulting, data and technology within Premier’s PINC AI™ technology platform, empowering us to deliver transformative workforce training initiatives for our members.
