Inefficient or ineffective healthcare workforce management can significantly increase costs for hospitals and practices. The healthcare workforce is evolving, often by necessity, thanks to the same gravitational forces that are affecting the rest of the industry and the economy at large: technological advances, competitive market forces, shifting imperatives that demand new skill sets, challenges with job satisfaction and burnout.
Whether they’re C-suite leaders, physicians, nurses, IT staff, data scientists, case managers, security pros or revenue cycle, billing and accounting experts, hospitals and health systems large and small are facing an array of challenges when it comes to finding the right people to fit the right roles.
It’s a familiar complaint echoed across health system C-suites nationwide. Physician dissatisfaction, combined with a dwindling clinical education supply, means an inevitable gap in the ability to deliver care safely and scale businesses. These shortfalls are problematic as the elderly population grows and providers find themselves in need of more providers to handle increasingly complex needs. The shortages also create a competitive job market in which the power is in the hands of employees, not employers.
With staffing shortages worsening and pressure on healthcare organizations increasing, CFOs and operations executives are predicting hospital labor costs to rise. The numbers support this, with expected shortages of 100,000 physicians by 2030, and shortages for other clinical and non-clinical professions potentially even worse. While the gaps will differ by state, and even by town, hospital and health system administrators will struggle over the next decade to staff key positions in an environment of cost constraints.
From small rural clinics to big city hospitals, HR leaders serving the health care workforce consistently feel the pressure of today’s rapidly changing environment, a delicate balancing act of regulatory compliance, employee safety and labor cost control, while trying to attract and retain qualified staff during a very real skilled labor shortage. Although these shifts can sometimes feel never-ending, they often can be addressed with process improvements and people management optimizations. To overcome these hurdles, HR must better understand the how and why behind each one. People in Healthcare will give you the tools to do that.
