PHYSICIAN RECRUITMENT & RETENTION

Because today’s ever changing healthcare landscape is wrought with physician shortages, hospital closings, changes to reimbursement and increasing costs for recruitment, it has never been more important to be sure your message and brand promise align with your product and service delivery.

The days of just finding a candidate who is qualified are behind us and there is a growing need to focus on the dynamics between identifying a qualified candidate and ensuring they fit into your organization.

SystemCare Health believes that to be successful in recruiting and retaining the right candidates, there must be a strong connection with your brand.

Impact on Provider Retention

A strong recruitment plan can have a major impact on a provider’s decision to stay with an organization. In fact, successful recruitment and retention are, in many ways, two sides of the same coin. Often the features that attract a provider to an organization are the same ones that tend to keep them with the organization. Ensuring you have a strong and effective recruitment strategy that is tied to your corporate brand promise is critical to successful provider retention.
