The Registry Program was created in 1988, to help coordinate the placement of temporary healthcare personnel associated with agencies selected to participate in the Registry Program in participating hospitals and healthcare facilities.
The Registry Program works closely with staffing agencies and participating facilities to establish working relationships that enhance customer service, patient care, and create more effective staffing alternatives. The Program allows for more efficient use of the supplemental staffing resources available in Arizona by working with agencies and hospitals to determine scheduling options for personnel based on availability.
The Registry Program operates four divisions: Per Diem Nursing, Travel Nursing, Allied Health Per Diem, and Allied Health Travel personnel. The Registry Program operates as a group purchasing arrangement as it helps participating facilities fill their staffing needs with healthcare personnel from the agencies under the terms of the Registry Program Master Agreement. The current Agreement commenced on November 1, 2011, and will go through October 31, 2014.
