Nurse Disrupted won the Information Technology category of the 2021 Governor’s Business Plan Contest.
As hospital systems nationwide face financial shortfalls and staffing shortages, Madison-area virtual nursing startup Nurse Disrupted recently raised $1.5 million to expand its services to inpatient hospitals.
Nurse Disrupted provides hardware, software and technical support services to help health providers offer virtual nursing. The startup says implementing its products can help hospital systems save millions of dollars on outsourced agency nurses by enabling staff nurses to work some shifts from home.
“What we’re doing is reducing nursing turnover by offering more flexible shifts, a little bit of physical respite by being able to do some virtual nursing shifts from home and to recharge nurses for their bedside shifts,” Nurse Disrupted CEO and co-founder Bre Loughlin said.
