«Amid a shortage of nurses, health systems are increasingly turning to digital health to fill gaps in scheduling.» 

«“Nurse staffing is more of a challenge now than it’s ever been,” said Eric Humphrey, chief human resources officer at Froedtert Health in Wisconsin. “It’s always been a challenge but with the pandemic we saw a lot of nurses choose to retire, others who decided to stay at home with their kids or work part time and some who just left healthcare altogether.”»

«An analysis in Health Affairs from April found that the number of nurses decreased in 2021 for the first time in 18 years. And the problem could get worse. A McKinsey survey of nurses in February found that 32% are likely to leave the profession within the year.»
