symplr Discusses Bridging Physician Gap With LocumTenens Practitioners Insymplr Monthly Webcast Series

HOUSTON - OCT. 28, 2015symplrTM, a leading provider of Software as a Service (SaaS) based healthcare compliance and credentialing solutions, today announced the upcoming webcast “Introduction to Locus Tenens.” Part of the symplr Education Series focused on Payor Enrollment, the webcast will air on Wednesday, October 28, 2015 at 12 p.m. CT/1 p.m. ET.

Healthcare leaders predict that the shortage of physicians will continue to rise. This increase will have a critical impact on the availability of physicians to provide quality patient care. A physician shortage can be bridged with the use of locum tenens practitioners. MSPs must be part of the management solution to integrate these physicians into their organizations in a compliant and properly vetted manner.

 In the first session of this webcast series, healthcare experts Donna Goestenkors, CPMSM ­ President, and Susan Collier, VP of Quality Management CHG Healthcare Services, will lead attendees through a series of proven practice techniques on launching a successful locum tenens program.

 “Locum tenens can play a vital role in filling the need for physicians, but integrating a new set of staff into an existing healthcare facility can be daunting,” said Patrick Birmingham, Vice President and General Manager of symplr. “Donna Goestenkors and Susan Collier have years of experience helping healthcare organizations expand their staff to include locus tenens and will help shorten the learning curve for attendees.”
