About our project



Update: Oct 2013 – YNIO Raises 390K!
To be honest, not all projects are great for rewards-based crowdfunding. YNIO is a perfect example, but they did great and their crowdfunding campaign restarted the conversations with dozens of clients and hospitals that were in the sales funnel. The Hospital sales cycle has killed many companies, but not this one. Maybe it had something to do with the 4,155 views from the health crowd of their video for a total of 47 hours? It just stands as testimony that in healthcare you can work your butt off and have a great product, but that is often not enough, sometimes you need more exposure, eyeballs, and a little luck. We make our own luck around here, you could even say we are a luck factory.

Back then we didn’t have an equity version, so they had to close the round the old fashioned way. In March YNIO took on $390,000 in funding and got a fantastic new partner helping them spread their service to tens of thousands more nurses. We are very excited for our friends at YNIO and look forward to helping them with their next round on MedFundr!

Update: Nov 2013 – Next Round Closing
YNIO rebranded as Intelliblast Communications and is arranging for it’s next tranche this month. Want to get involved with this amazing company today? Contact Us today and we will introduce you. They are all set up on MedFundr, which should be available later in the month, but for now only private beta access is available.

Here is the original project:

As the one responsible for ensuring quality nursing coverage for your patients, you see this scenario all the time:
One of the nurses has gotten injured, and her shift has to be filled!

By calling the members of your nursing staff one by one, you’ll only get in touch with about 15 within an hour. But an hour for your patients is too long and the effect on your day is a massive loss of productive time.

Instead, imagine being able to contact every registered nurse that is qualified for the needs of that particular shift instantly, and getting their responses within seconds.

This is what YourNurseIsOn.com does. The YNIO™ communications platform is a paradigm changing, disruptive technology that will forever change the way your healthcare team is coordinated in times of great need, for emergencies large and small.

How it works

When you have a need, simply say what type of people you need when and where. Your un-allocated staff will receive a text, phone call, then email (or in any order they prefer) with the details of an assignment. One click will accept or reject the request and instantly alert you of their availability and decision.

For example: click to show that you need an RN at 11pm to work in the emergency room at location X. The YourNurseIson.com system then determines which of your staff are qualified and available for that shift and how they prefer to be communicated with. It then sends specified communications to select staff members who upon receiving the request, can accept or reject the assignment.

Designed for both Administrators & Nurses

CLICK Hospitals and healthcare facilities/agencies are able to instantly contact and confirm staff by multiple communication methods, including 2-way text, phone and email.

CONTACT Enables connectivity with staff in ways that help with shift coverage, routine and emergency communications, compliance communications and continuity of operations.

CONFIRM The YNIO™ communications platform recognizes a staff member’s response and can then perform a number of functions such as: notifying a manager who has filled the shift, sending information to a scheduling or billing application, or filling the next requisition.

RESULTS YourNurseIsOn.com improves patient outcomes, staff morale and customer satisfaction while simultaneously decreasing staff turnover, overtime costs and agency usage.

What problem are we solving?

Healthcare cannot happen without healthcare providers and an army of ancillary staff. Staffing needs change by the minute – callouts, accidents, injuries, changes in census and changes in acuity all require staff communication.

That communication is done, today, by telephone calling one provider at a time. This is inefficient, expensive and time consuming. Inadequate staffing leads to decreased patient outcomes, lower patient satisfaction, increased overtime and agency costs, increased worker injuries and turnover, increased “never” events and a lower bottom line.

How does YNIO solve the problem?

YourNurseIsOn.com’s competitive edge is our patent-pending communications platform, which makes communication instant on any existing device.

In addition, our system monitors license, CPR and insurance expirations and can automatically notify management and staff when action is required. It also categorizes staff by seniority, per diem vs. part-time vs. full-time, or by department.

YourNurseIsOn.com can: decrease overtime expenses; decrease agency usage; decrease staff vacancy rates and dangerous under-staffing; decrease employee turnover due to mandates and burnout; increase patient/provider contact hours; improve patient outcomes and satisfaction; introduce new communications capabilities for routine and emergency communications; and provide a hardware-agnostic unified communications solution for pennies per person per day.
