About Us

The current healthcare and dental staffing systems are broken. That’s why our team at Locqum is developing solutions including a modern-day dental hiring platform and an advanced medical credential verification service to solve common problems with less friction.

Locqum was started by a group of doctors frustrated by the excessive fees and cumbersome process needed to hire temporary and permanent medical staff. We’re working hard to push healthcare forward with a commitment to innovation, experimentation, and compassion.

Investors

At Locqum, we welcome investor inquiries. For any investment-related questions, please call (208) 251-4711.

Social Impact

Locqum is committed to social impact. We believe that everyone deserves high-quality healthcare and that our current healthcare system does not perform equally well for all patients and staff members. That’s why we’re creating services to help streamline the healthcare process and make finding quality professionals easier for medical and dental practitioners.
Credential verification is a necessary but time-consuming process for every healthcare organization. We want to make verification easier, more affordable, and more efficient for healthcare institutions of all sizes. CVO by Locqum uses a digital-first approach that connects organizations with a professional verification team through a subscription-based platform. Healthcare teams pay for only the credentials they need and can adjust their plan at any time.

The hiring process for dental hygienists and assistants is antiquated and broken. That's why we created Dental Diem, where dental professionals can get hired by dental offices who need to fill temporary shifts. Rather than relying on word of mouth or a phone tree, dental hygienists and assistants can use our online portal to match with local dentists. At the same time, dental offices can connect with credentialed, experienced professionals in minutes. Get started for free today.
