Meet Mediflash, a brand-new French start-up that wishes to enhance temperature staffing in health care centers, such as nursing houses, centers and psychological health centers. The business positions itself as an option to standard temperature staffing firms. They declare to provide much better terms for both caretakers and organizations.
“It costs a little fortune to health centers while caretakers are paid improperly,” co-founder Léopold Treppoz informed me.
Conventional temperature staffing firms work with caretakers and nurses on their payroll. When a center does not have adequate personnel, they ask their typical temperature staffing firm. The company discovers somebody and charges the center.
“When we began, we believed we would do a temperature staffing company, however more digital, more tech,” Treppoz stated. The start-up understood they would deal with the very same concerns as routine temperature staffing companies.
Rather, they took a look at other start-ups dealing with freelancer markets for designers, task supervisors, marketer and more. In France, a few of them have actually been rather effective, such as Comet, Malt, StaffMe and Brigad— a few of them even run a vertical concentrated on health specialists. Mediflash desires to focus particularly on caretakers.
Specialists registering to Mediflash are freelancers. Mediflash just serves as a market that links health centers with caretakers. The business states caretakers can anticipate more income– as much as 20%– while centers wind up paying less.
Naturally, it’s not a reasonable contrast as temperature staffing firms employ caretakers. As a freelancer, you do not have the very same advantages as a full-time worker. And in specific, you can’t get welfare.
“But a great deal of caretakers state that this isn’t a concern due to the fact that there is a great deal of need [from health centers],” Treppoz stated. On the platform, you’ll discover trainees in nursing school who wish to make a little cash, specialists who currently have a part-time task trying to find extra work in addition to full-time alternative caretakers.
Typically, centers simply desire somebody for 3 days since they’re running short on personnel. Mediflash is aware that health centers generally deal with one temperature staffing company which’s it. That’s why the start-up has a sales group that needs to talk with each center one by one. Now, the start-up is mainly focused on Metz, Nancy and Strasbourg.
Mediflash just recently raised a $2 million financing round (EUR1.7 million) led by Firstminute Capital. Numerous organization angels are likewise getting involved, such as Alexandre Fretti (Malt), Alexandre Lebrun (Nabla), Simon Dawlat (Batch.com) and Marie Outtier (Aiden.ai, gotten by Twitter).
Far, the business has actually handled 1,400 alternative days. Mediflash takes a cut on each deal. The business now prepares to broaden to other cities all around the nation.
