  • Why is the current healthcare staffing model in need of an update?
    There is a massive and growing practitioner shortage in the healthcare industry. More specifically, there are so many metro areas that are saturated w/ providers, while many suburban and rural areas are suffering every day. Freelance practitioners are often hired to relieve shortages like this, but the current staffing supply chain is often slow and expensive. Medical practices often pay high agency markups and sacrifice an estimated $7500 per day due to onboarding delays. Furthermore, over 50% of physicians report burnout, and patients ultimately suffer.
  • What is What is Hyr Medical's overarching vision and mission?
    Our Mission: Hyr Medical's mission is to empower employers to directly recruit and credential physicians without using agencies. Our Vision: To create a world in which space and time are no longer barriers to providing and receiving quality healthcare Hyr Medical is fundamentally transforming and modernizing the online healthcare staffing industry and enable an elastic, responsive and on-demand workforce. We are shaping the healthcare hiring economy by offering more lifestyle choices for healthcare providers and more staffing flexibility for medical practices.
  • What is Hyr Medical doing to reduce credentialing time and waste?
    This is an enormous issue for providers and medical practices. The short answer is that Hyr leverages numerous data partnerships and applies web-technology, automation and streamlined processes to significantly reduce the time required for credentialing. Our staff prepares documents on behalf of providers and electronically sends documents for review and signature. Final documents and artifacts are then sent to the medical practice. Hyr Medical has also formed a partnership with Axuall ( to leverage its blockchain-based credentialing and verification network to eliminate the wasteful practice of revalidating provider information. This will result in a significant reduction in credentialing cycle time. We have conducted early pilot activities with Axuall and believe that digitial credentialing (built on the blockchain) is the future for the staffing industry. For more information on Axuall visit:

  • How are provider rates set on Hyr Medical?
    Rates are ultimately set by the medical practice. However, Hyr Medical does collaborate with the medical practice by providing benchmark rates to ensure that rates are competitive and high enough to quickly attract high quality, freelance providers. Note that rates on job postings are always transparent; they are displayed upfront on Hyr, along with the exact practice location. This is part of our Hyr Provider Bill of Rights. We believe that providers and medical practices should be able to set rates without haggling and wasting time.

    Yes. Hyr covers its 1099 contracted providers with our A++ rated MedPro (Berkshire Hathaway) med-mal policy. Coverage limits are aligned with state requirements and tail-coverage is provided.

  • Why is it important to 100% complete my profile on Hyr Medical?
    When you first create your free account on Hyr, your profile is only partially complete. You can browse all jobs on the marketplace, but you can't apply. Completion of your profile to 100%, which only takes 5-10 minutes, enables you to apply to jobs and notify medical practices of your interest. In addition, you'll want to upload a current CV to allow the medical practice to start reviewing your information.
  • Will you call me after I join and will I receive match emails and notifications?
    As a company founded by clinicians, we know your time is valuable. We will not call or text you (see "Provider Bill of Rights" below). You will receive emails (usually system generated ones regarding jobs you match for or the status of jobs you've applied to) and push notifications if you use our iOS or Android mobile app. We will only call or text you if you are going through the credentialing process with a medical practice. Please refer to Hyr's Provider Bill of Rights below.​​
  • Who can see my profile and how is my information protected?
    Your profile is hosted on our encrypted, cloud-based servers. Only you, the medical practices, and Hyr Medical can view your profile.
  • How does Hyr Medical manage the provider credentialing process?
    Once a provider applies to a job, completes an e-background check via Hyr and is accepted by the medical practice, they will securely upload and store their credentialing documents (medical license, merit badge certificates, diplomas, etc.). We will request and complete the medical practice applications, payor enrollment forms, and any other required documents. We will also leverage your CV, CAQH, NPDB, and other data sources. We will then alert the provider via email to electronically review and sign the documents. The final credentialing package will then be submitted to the medical practice.
  • How long does it take to start working at a new medical practice?
    This varies from practice to practice, but in general, once all your application materials are completed and artifacts collected (2-4 weeks), Hyr will submit the final credentialing package to the medical practice. The medical practice, based on their internal process and bylaws, will submit your file for privileging (4-8 weeks). Through our partnership w/ Axuall, we continue to pilot digital credentialing approaches to dramatically reduce this credentialing cycle time.
  • How and when are providers paid for completed assignments?
    Excellent and important question! Compensation for completed assignments, which includes clinical work and travel lump sum allowance, are direct deposited into the providers designated bank account. Payment is made within 30 days of assignment completion.
  • Does Hyr reimburse the cost of new state medical licenses?

  • How does the medical practice gain online access to Hyr Medical?
    Once the 1-page agreement is finalized, we will provide the medical practice with one or more facility rep accounts on Hyr. The facility rep is generally the recruiting manager who reviews job applicants, accepts/declines applicants to start credentialing, reviews/monitors posted jobs and browses and connects w/ physicians on the Hyr platform. Hyr also relies on the facility rep to notify us to update or remove certain posted jobs.
  • How does Hyr manage the invoicing process with medical practices?
    When a provider is scheduled for an assignment w/ the medical practice, Hyr Medical will send a confirmation letter to both parties for electronic signature. Once the assignment is completed, Hyr will invoice the medical practice. The invoice will include both the fee for clinical services and the travel lump sum. Payments terms are net 30 days.
  • What can medical practices do to further reduce staffing cycle times?
    Once you have accepted an applicant to begin credentialing, timely communication is critical to ensure the shortest overall cycle time.
