Aya Healthcare acquires Nashville’s Winnow AI

Music City company combines artificial and business intelligence to identify physicians who are likely to relocate to their region.

Aya Healthcare, the San Diego-based company that is largest healthcare talent software and staffing firm in the U.S., has acquired Winnow AI, a data Nashville-based science-driven solution that unlocks predictive physician insights and untapped connections to bolster an organization’s provider recruitment and retention strategies.

Coming amidst a historic provider shortage, Winnow AI combines artificial intelligence (AI) with business intelligence to help organizations tap into a unique source of passive physicians who are likely to relocate to their region. Winnow’s AI model identifies the best predictive matches for each open role and surfaces relationships of potential candidates with existing providers. The model also predicts which physicians are likely to change jobs and where they are most likely to relocate.

These insights equip medical leaders and in-house recruiters to drive novel candidate options, referrals, and create perfectly aligned provider teams, leading to faster, more efficient physician recruitment. Winnow AI will operate within Aya’s Provider Solutions division.

The Nashville company was launched by SwitchPoint Ventures, an award-winning venture studio that builds AI-driven business solutions for the challenges of healthcare.

“Winnow AI offers a more targeted approach to building all-star teams by pinpointing candidates who match the profiles of a company’s best doctors,” said Ray Guzman, Co-Founder of Winnow AI and Chief Executive Officer of SwitchPoint Ventures. “Aya’s ability to scale Winnow’s innovative solution will help healthcare companies dramatically improve their ability to attract, hire, and retain the best-fit providers for their organizations.”
