The only solution that empowers medical leaders to drive physician hiring.
Amidst a historic physician shortage, Winnow offers a competitive advantage.
Winnow combines artificial intelligence with business intelligence to create a breakthrough solution that supplements traditional physician recruiting. In the process, we've cracked the code to fuel better, faster physician hires.
The Winnow journey began from a problem we heard from every corner of healthcare: traditional physician recruiting is broken.
So we set out to develop a new approach to hiring physicians, working closely with healthcare leaders to identify the day to day challenges with recruiting. With our best data scientists iterating in real time, we discovered that a key opportunity was hidden in plain sight: the underutilized and typically ad hoc channel of physician referrals.
Building successful physician teams should be a team sport. Physicians can play a big role in driving the right hires, and physician recruiters deserve all the help they can get.
Turns out that we didn't need to recreate the wheel, we just needed to pump it full of air.
Our novel approach was to put physicians into the driver's seat of referrals and vetting. Not just as an afterthought, but as a whole separate operation powered by AI, creating hot inbound leads for recruiters.
Winnow's solution is built around an AI model that identifies the best predictive matches for each open role, then surfaces relationships with existing physicians. Our platform unlocks a new door to physician hiring by arming medical leaders with the predictive insights and untapped connections they need to drive candidate options, referrals, and perfectly aligned teams.
