For Prospective Members: Going Beyond Fundamentals in Medical Staff Development
Using physician needs assessments as the foundation for strategy
Hospitals are no longer viewing the physician needs assessment as just an exercise for compliance purposes, but also as a key component in the overall development of their physician alignment strategy. Most medical staffs are not fully replenishing themselves due to the significant costs of recruitment and physician employment. Increasing competition for physician talent in multiple sub-specialties, growing demands for support by independent practices, as well as resistance from established physicians to the idea of recruitment, leaves the health care organization with the primary responsibility and challenge of continually developing its medical staff.
Successful organizations are going beyond the data to a well thought-out physician needs assessment to serve as the foundation for a comprehensive medical staff development plan and physician alignment strategy. These organizations have found it to be an exemplary way to engage physicians, community and leadership in the design of a strategy that meets the needs of their market.
Randy Gott, Southwind Senior Vice President, will lead a complimentary webconference that outlines how Southwind can help identify the optimal methodologies for capturing community need and use the results to further physician relations.
Participants will gain from this webinar an understanding of several key items:
- The three drivers of medical staff planning – statistical need, qualitative need, and functional need
- The key areas to evaluate in determining those needs within a health system’s medical community
- The benefits of taking the approach of evaluating both quantitative and qualitative factors in determining need
- How to engage the physicians and community in assessing medical community need
