The Melville, N.Y-based Nassau-Suffolk Hospital Council, representing 24 member hospitals, has formed an exclusive strategic partnership with LLoyd Staffing (Melville) for its healthcare technology transition goals.

The Hospital Council will help its member hospitals meet current federal mandates for patient chart conversions and a shared network of data that is expected to improve the overall quality, safety and costs of treatment, the company says.

LLoyd says it will offer a program to inform and educate prospective talent associates on the EMR technology process. The LLoyd Health IT curriculum will be specifically focused on current health care industry technology initiatives and it says it will increase the pool of clinical IT professionals available to Council hospitals.

The partnership became effective Dec. 1, 2009 and LLoyd has already begun working with member hospitals to create clinical technology staffing implementation plans.
