We know healthcare recruiters have challenges with recruiting today. As the Baby Boomers age and the affordable Care Act gives more people access to healthcare, the shortage of qualified healthcare professionals has become a big problem. To compound the issue further, Baby Boomers account for a large portion of current healthcare professionals and are retiring faster than medical and residency programs can produce new physicians, nurses, and other skilled professionals.
Between healthcare professional’s retirement, the aging population and the increase in people with access to healthcare, there is a bigger need for healthcare professionals than ever before and the pressure is on healthcare recruiters to fill those positions quickly. An open position can negatively impact your organization’s quality of care and put strain on your existing staff, but good candidates are difficult to find in a limited amount of time.
