The COVID-19 pandemic has renewed many questions healthcare leaders have been asking for some time, and introduced new questions as they look to improve the delivery of care in this “new normal”:
- Do we have a flexible clinical staffing model that can handle surges and volume declines in a cost efficient manner?
- What are we doing to help our frontline nurses and physicians reduce burnout and focus on patient care?
- How can I right-size staffing models to reduce premium pay and locum utilization?
These are just a few of the questions we hear from our partners. The many challenges that faced healthcare leaders before are still on the rise. Shrinking margins, provider burnout, increasing administrative and regulatory burdens – the list goes on.
