 CareLuminate Insights 
Building Bridges to the Places Your Hospital Wants To Go

Candid, Unbiased, Powerful 


We are talking to nurses.  In your hospital, and across the nation.

We conduct structured interviews centered around two key questions:

1. Do you recommend your hospital to your loved ones?

2. Do you recommend your hospital to other RNs?

These conversations reveal comparative new insights, particularly related to Quality, Care Experiences, and Why Nurses Leave but perhaps more importantly, Why Nurses Stay.  CareLuminate, with data and behavioral science, will work with your teams to deliver the results that get you where you want to go. 

 CareLuminate Nurse Experience and Care Recommendations data, when combined with CMS Stars and HCAHPS data, reveal innovative insights allowing us to dig into what is working, and what is not, creating a data-driven clearer path to help hospitals proactively improve care quality, patient experience, hospital reputation, and of course RN retention while reducing contract labor costs. 

Let's work together to build strong, meaningful bridges with the largest, most expensive healthcare labor force.

 We are different from every other RN survey yet seen.  Our personal, structured interviews provide not just a view into a hospital, but also show how that hospital is differentiated against all others in a community. Hospital leadership will better understand the labor differences in bedside care quality, the work environment, as well as reputation commentary made by the largest workforce within each hospital in a community.   CareLuminate works at risk to help hospitals gain powerful knowledge from never-before-seen data. Our behavioral science team gives leaders the data-driven building blocks needed to make sustainable positive changes in perceptions, attitudes, and teamwork. These combined tools are the roadmap to becoming the employer of choice.

“Given current and projected staffing shortages and the associated upward reset of labor rates, Fitch believes that providers' success in attracting and retaining permanent staff is key to mitigating stress on margins. The sector will trifurcate, with highly successful labor recruiters generally gravitating to higher investment grade ratings.”
– Fitch Ratings, 2023
