Montebello, NY – September 15, 2023 – Empeon, the enterprise-grade Human Capital Management (HCM) platform for health systems, announces today its partnership with Keeper, a leading earned wage access (EWA) platform for healthcare workers. The two industry-leading software providers are joining forces to give healthcare organizations a powerful tool to combat chronic healthcare labor shortages and give healthcare workers more financial freedom.
“The Empeon/Keeper relationship is based on our common goal of solving needs unique to customers in the healthcare industry with innovative, easy-to-use, automated payroll solutions,” says Lipa Lefkowitz, CEO of Keeper.
Nearly two-thirds of healthcare workers live paycheck-to-paycheck. Early access to wages provides much-needed financial flexibility to caregivers. The benefit has also proven helpful in extending the average tenure of employees in long-term care and home health, reducing turnover and accelerating the adoption of digital solutions in healthcare.
“It’s clear the team at Keeper understands the complexities of the healthcare space and is highly adaptive to change,” says Joel Krausz, EVP of Strategic Operations at Empeon. “They do a great job of listening to customers and identifying actionable insights, which helps them continually improve their solutions and stay on the cutting edge of healthcare HR tech.”
Thanks to the two platforms’ integration, customers can automate the early-payment request and payment delivery processes, freeing up HR staff to focus on more strategic and impactful functions of their job.
