It seems like common sense to cut out the middleman when it comes to any business.  Unfortunately, doctors aren’t always their best advocates when it comes to their businesses.  Locums companies take advantage of that and make a killing.   I was in a situation where I serendipitously was offered the same job from both a locums company and the hospital directly.  The Locums company offered me 60% of what the hospital gave me directly.  That’s when I truly realized how much we were leaving on the table with every deal with a locums company.  But realizing that you’re the one with the talent, the life-saving skill, and honestly, the priceless commodity is power.  Negotiating your own contracts directly is the ultimate way to flex that power. This is how FlexMedStaff is changing the game so that all physicians can be successful at cutting out the middleman.
