Healthcare systems have historically utilized Medical Staff Development Plans to build physician recruitment plans that address community needs in their market. As a result, for most health systems, this involves performing a provider supply and demand study, evaluating medical staff age issues, and building a limited physician-focused recruitment plan that focuses on addressing gaps in community need.
Today’s healthcare environment demands that Medical Staff Development Planning evolves to a more strategic function, given the importance of providers in the execution of a health system’s overall strategy. In addition, given the relative lack of physicians in relation to physician demand, plans must more closely evaluate the recruitment and deployment of Advanced Practitioners, not just in primary care practices but in specialty practices as well.
Explore how healthcare systems can expand planning beyond community needs and explore a different approach as you grow your medical staff strategically.
