5 Halloween Costumes for Healthcare Staffing

Posted by Julie Moore on Mon, Oct 27, 2014 @ 12:25 PM

Now, you probably have your work Halloween party coming up this week and want to make sure you have something appropriate but different, right?  Well the BlueSky team brainstormed and came up with a great list of costumes specifically for healthcare staffing. Check them out!  

1.  Travel Nurse

This is probably the easiset thing to do as a recruiter.  All you need to do is grab some scrubs, a stethoscope, a globe and then make a Google Pin hat out of some cardboard. 

2.  BlueSky Man

For those of you who were at the Healthcare Staffing Summit 2012 in Las Vegas you got to see Rick Ault, our implementation specialist dressed up as BlueSky man.  Its a pretty simple costume with a blue spandex suit, blue mask, blue cape, and of course have BlueSky running on your iPad. 


3.  BLS Card

For those medical staffing credentialers that want to do something simple yet funny to all of their coworkers then dress up as a BLS card.  You can make the card body sign by printing out a large American Heart Association BLS Card, pasting it to cardboard and then hanging it from your body.  


4.  Prophecy Healthcare’s Anita Nurse

We love Prophecy Healthcare and Anita Nurse.  She is the fun loving teddy bear that they have been giving out at shows for the past several years.  You may even have an Anita Nurse sitting on your desk.  For this costume you need a bear outfit, a stethoscope, a surgical mask and a nurses hat.  


5.  Jason Lander from Staffing Robot

Finally we save the best for last and if you know Jason Lander from Staffing Robot then you know he has a certain recognizable style. Since he works with so many healthcare staffing agencies I thought this was very appropriate.  All you need is a fedora, jeans, vest and of course some cool shoes.  This is quintessential Jason.


We would love to see you and what you decide to dress up as for your office halloween party.  Please tweet pictures of your costume to @blueskymss #healthcarestaffinghalloween.  We look forward to hearing from you!

New BlueSky Updates!

Posted by Doug Word on Fri, Sep 13, 2013 @ 03:20 PM

describe the imageAt BlueSky, we have more enhancements to announce that will save our clients time and increase their productivity. They will also help to further establish BlueSky MSS as THE source for cutting-edge technology in the medical staffing software sphere.

One exciting update we want to feature is a change we made to the Pay overtime calculation.

This stemmed from an issue agencies faced when they had a contract with a facility -- particularly those in California concerned with daily overtime -- but oftentimes were faced with the problem of pay and bill weeks that did not coincide. Our developers recognized this discrepency and wanted to make things easier for our clients.

describe the image

So we found a solution to match those pay and bill periods allowing for overtime.

What this means:

  • Agencies no longer have to manually override overtime payroll and invoicing.
  • There will be no discrepencies in overtime calculations if a facility has a different bill week than pay week.
  • OT calculations for the contract will match the facility contract.

Previously, either the agency or the caregiver might have received the short end of the stick. With this new tool, reconciliations are much easier for payroll and invoicing teams. Now, the pay and bill will add up. Keep in mind, however, that is update pertains to contract work only and does not apply to per diem shifts.

Other new upgrades include:

  • Gross Margin has been added to the candidate search.
  • A vendor contact is now available in Vendor Notes and in the Note grid.
  • Facility- and Unit-required documents have been added to Placement.
  • Radius Search for caregiver and facility
  • Revamped Email Template Editor!
  • And much, much more!

Thank you again for your feedback. Our upgrades are the direct result from the feedback of our clients! As always, if you have any questions please forward them to [email protected]. We are here to help!

BlueSky's Global Cash Card Integration

Posted by Doug Word on Tue, Aug 27, 2013 @ 03:16 PM

GCCThese are exciting times here at BlueSky. At this year's Healthcare Staffing Summit in Chicago we will unveil a long-awaited feature: an integration with Global Cash Card! Be sure to stop by and visit us in Booth No. 101 for a live demo! We are thrilled to share this seamless enhancement with our loyal customers.

What is Global Cash Card?
Global Cash Card is a paycard program designed to make payroll and invoicing much more convenient for your company and employees. It essentially takes the place of a paper check.

Global Cash Card is ideal for daily pay, because it loads funds electronically onto the card, effectively bypassing paperwork and paper checks as well as their costs. It also works great for travel assignments, because the caregiver will no longer have to visit his or her branch office to pick up a check.

Find out more here: GlobalCashCard.com.

How will it work?
The employee will have his or her compensation loaded onto a paycard, which looks like a standard credit, debit or gift card. Equipped with top-notch security, the card funds are FDIC insured and 100 percent paperless. The card will get funded after you run payroll, and the caregiver's net pay will load.

When will it be ready?
BlueSky will unveil this feature at the 2013 Healthcare Staffing Summit in Chicago. If you haven't signed up yet be sure to do so here. You don't want to miss this!
