Why US Locums is Different

At US Locums, we approach staffing differently and more systematically, so we’re confident you will have a positive experience.

Just like evidence based clinical protocols provide an agreed standard to which clinicians and health facilities can work and against which they can be measured, our Total Locums Care® system sets the highest standards across each step in the Locums placement process for contractors.

By embedding best practices within each step and understanding mistakes often made in the industry, our approach ensures that you’re up to speed on every step of the process.

Having a great system alone isn’t enough, though.


We have to know how to bring every component within our system together to deliver measurable results for our customers through our people.

Total Locums Care® enables US Locums to proactively address common failures.

These common failures include:

  • Lack of proper pre-qualifying and screening of facilities.
  • Miscommunication of assignment details such as patient volume, call schedules (if any), etc.
  • Missed credentialing deadlines
  • Improper onboarding and training for contractors
  • On- assignment support in place to support compliance and improved documentation

The Total Locums Care® Process

Our Total Locums Care® process (TLC) contains checklists and pause points to help us identify potential problems before they become issues.

TLC provides a proven and predictable process based on best-practice standards throughout every step of the placement process. This will make you more comfortable and confident, especially if you’re new to locum tenens or had a negative experience in the past.

Just like clinical protocols are key to quality patient outcomes, we use best-practices locums staffing protocols to better serve contractors.

  • Our TLC system assures providers get the most appropriate action for any given situation that arises, every time.

  • The TLC system provides an agreed upon highest-quality standard to which we measure all that we do.
  • Using TLC helps prevent potential problems from ever arising (including compliance-related issues such as completeness of medical records prior to the end of a contractor’s assignment).
  • With TLC, we can better measure our overall effectiveness by each important component, ultimately allowing us to provide you with a better experience.

Our goal is to successfully execute on this process every step of the way to make each contractor’s experience exceptional.
