Press Release

Boston (Dec. 12, 2023)

Laudio, an innovator in front-line leader solutions that drive efficiency and engagement for health systems, today announced a new collaboration with the American Organization for Nursing Leadership (AONL) to inform the future of work in nursing. A cornerstone will be the development of biannual reports providing unique data, insights, and perspectives related to today’s nurse leaders and their evolving roles.

“At Laudio, we firmly believe nurse leaders have the potential to be a health system’s strongest asset. Unfortunately, they are oftentimes overlooked and don’t receive the resources and solutions needed to succeed,” said Russ Richmond, MD, CEO and co-founder of Laudio. “By collaborating with AONL and jointly developing a variety of publications, we aim to quantify the value nurse leaders bring to health systems and offer insights into the operational attributes that allow them to be most impactful.”

As the national professional organization of more than 11,000  nurse leaders, AONL is the voice of nursing leadership. AONL’s mission is to transform health care through expert and influential nursing leadership. Its work includes promoting leadership development, improving health through advocacy, and fostering a diverse nursing leadership community.

“We are pleased to collaborate with Laudio, a company that shares our values in advancing nurse leadership,” said Robyn Begley, CEO of AONL and chief nursing officer, senior vice president of workforce at the American Hospital Association. “By collaborating with Laudio on these reports, we aim to deliver insights our members will use and operationalize in real-time. We believe these insights will help inform strategic workforce decisions.”

Laudio offers the first and only integrated platform focused on scaling front-line leaders' work, easing their administrative burden and fostering impactful engagement with their teams. Nearly 20 health systems have implemented the platform, offering Laudio access to a wealth of actionable insights to help health care executives make informed decisions and implement new operational models to reduce turnover and costs.
