Global health Clinical Process Outsourcing (CPO®) giant Shearwater Health is set to move to a new and bigger location in Cebu on September 12 at the Mabuhay Tower in Cebu IT Park. “We have been pleased with the quality of work by our Cebu operations and personnel, so when the need arose to accommodate a growing number of clients, we chose to expand and transfer to a bigger and better site in Cebu,” said Anshum Sinha, Shearwater Health Chief Operating Officer of CPO® and Country Manager.
The Philippines is increasingly recognized as one of the best countries for outsourced solutions because of their strong clinical and English-speaking skills, with Cebu being one of the leading investment areas in the country. “As we move to a bigger location, we will definitely offer more job opportunities for highly-motivated, career-driven, and hard-working nurses and clinicians. We are offering jobs for about 500 USRN, PHRN, and Medical Coders,” said Sinha.
Shearwater Health has been a leader in the BPO industry with a sole focus on healthcare, which is why they trademarked the term CPO® (Clinical Process Outsourcing). They also provide high quality clinical staff for healthcare providers, payers, and companies requiring skilled clinical experience since 1973. According to Shearwater Health President and Chief Financial Officer, Tom Kendrot, there is a significant nurse shortage in the United States with over 100,000 openings for clinical experience in its healthcare industry, a gap that his firm seeks to fill.
He said this shortage will only grow and is projected to reach 200,000 by 2020. By outsourcing clinical and administrative needs to Shearwater Health, various clients can thus free up their current clinical staff to perform the highest priority tasks. Shearwater Health uses clinically-certified staff from all over the world to meet the needs of healthcare companies in the United States. The global giant boasts of over 2,000 clinicians in HITRUST-certified and URAC-accredited facilities in the Philippines that operate in remote, dedicated teams for its clients.
Its clients include top US healthcare and insurance companies and service providers, including 8 of the top 10 health plans, 5 of the top 6 workers’ compensation Third Party Administrators, over 20 healthcare service providers and managed care organizations. “We are always expanding as a fast-growing company. We thus expect to open more sites in the future,” said Kendrot. “We plan on staying in the Philippines market due to the high quality of healthcare professionals that allow us to deliver clinical solutions to our clients,” he added.
