Allied Healthcare Case Study:

Solving staff shortages and turnover for two nationwide pharmacy businesses.


Two large, nationwide, pharmacy-based companies struggled finding quality candidates to fulfill roles involving medication therapy management and consumer outreach, focusing on high quality customer service.


Plagued by staff shortages, both companies were struggling with a cycle of overworked people and low morale driving even more attrition. With more than 375 pharmacist, pharmacy technician, and customer support roles available, these companies needed people — and fast.


They engaged Alliance Healthcare Solutions’ staffing services due to our extensive database of pharmacy professionals and use of technology to quickly source and activate quality talent. AHS was able to spring into action by offering:

  • Temp-to-hire services to try out new allied health employees before committing to a permanent hire
  • A dedicated team to quickly source and engage with candidates
  • Sourcing technology to connect and vet candidates quickly and thoroughly
  • Trends and market information that influenced the client to offer market pay rates
