New HealthcareSource TestSource Software Helps Hospitals Screen for Fit

Woburn, Mass — April 21, 2011 — HealthcareSource®, the leader in talent management software for the healthcare industry , today announced significant product enhancements to its TestSource Healthcare Selection Inventory® (HSI) — a behavioral assessment solution for healthcare.

The new edition of the HSI adds an assortment of product features including a powerful “Screen for FitSM” function, an updated look for the Feedback Reports and refined Structured Interview Guides, which help hiring managers conduct effective behavioral based interviews.

As the first product upgrade since HealthcareSource acquired TestSource in November 2010, this version has been optimized to integrate the HSI with HealthcareSource’s flagship Position Manager® applicant and onboarding tracking solution, deployed by more than 1,000 healthcare facilities.

Screen for Fit:
Features and benefits of “Screen for Fit” include:
• Saves recruiters hours of sorting through applications
• Provides objective data for the recruiters
• Reinforces hiring for “fit” and service aptitude
• Screen-in top 50% of applicants for high-volume postings with a few mouse clicks

“The dynamics of the economy have had a significant impact on our clients. Many of them are overwhelmed with the sheer volume of applications for some positions,” said Michael DiPietro, VP of Marketing and Product Management. “Our new `Screen for Fit’ feature saves many hours and allows them to invest their time on quality interviews with the individuals who are likely to possess the behavioral competencies they’re seeking.”

While TestSource and HealthcareSource worked together for over five years and were jointly integrated at more than 150 facilities before their merger last fall, this new edition provides a robust integration between Position Manager and HSI. Through the combination of these two industry-leading products, hiring managers are now able to retrieve feedback reports directly through Position Manager; as well as unite information from applications and surveys together — increasing their efficiency, saving time, and streamlining the hiring process.

“The solutions from HealthcareSource and TestSource work well together. Using them in concert with one another makes it much easier to screen candidates and track the evolving status of applicants,” said Jennifer Bucher, Coordinator of Employment Services at Susquehanna Health — an award-winning three-hospital regional health system in north central Pennsylvania and the region’s largest employer with more than 3,000 employees.
