    #105: The Story of Intelycare and a $45M Nursing Investment 🚑

    This week, James is joined by Chris Caulfield, a registered nurse and cofounder / chief nursing officer at Intelycare. After witnessing short staffing as a floor nurse and union leader, Chris built a solution to reduce nurse staffing shortages by joining forces with a full-stack engineer and developed an on-demand, app-based scheduling solution for nurses and nursing facilities.

    Chris filled IntelyCare's first shift four years ago, and since then, he's been helping the organisation grow across the US. Today, IntelyCare has over 11,000 active Nursing professionals who've filled over two and a half million hours of skilled nursing care, making IntelyCare the fastest growing healthcare staffing company in the US.
