Driving efficiencies in healthcare staffing
Healthcare is hot. In 2020 the Bureau of Labor Statistics forecast that employment in healthcare occupations is projected to grow 15 percent from 2019 to 2029, much faster than the average for all occupations, adding about 2.4 million new jobs. The question is, how will the healthcare industry efficiently select the best workers for all those positions? Given the choice between the healthcare worker who got a C and the one who got an A, which patient is going to choose the less qualified person to take out their appendix, prescribe medication or draw blood? Add to that the pace at which science is progressing in healthcare, evolving state and federal level privacy laws, and staffing effectively and efficiently presents real challenges not present in other staffing decisions.
Clearly, technology, automation and data are critical to assist hiring managers in meeting the unique challenges presented by healthcare staffing. Generic staffing background checks are not comprehensive enough and won’t create the necessary profile required by regulators. Today it’s no longer sufficient to take a snapshot of a healthcare worker’s credentials at the time of hiring and it’s not efficient to pay staff to continuously monitor healthcare staff for both compliance and concerns, during their tenure.
