Onboarding new practitioners shouldn’t require running a gauntlet of red tape. Within most healthcare organizations, the process can resemble a maze of interconnected departments – each with their own requirements and processes. Depending on your size, integrating new medical staff may set in motion a network of recruiters, human resource departments, medical staff services, credentialing committees, administration, and a system of physician mentors – all working toward the same goal.
Call it a hiring spree! Between the looming physician shortage and the pressure to treat more insured patients through the Affordable Care Act, more and more high-performing healthcare organizations are adding new physicians to their payrolls. In fact, a recent study by The Cejka Search and American Medical Group Association (AMGA) showed that 76% of healthcare entities plan to hire more primary care physicians. When it comes to creating a strategic differentiator, organizations must work to proactively develop an effective practitioner onboarding process.
