It’s not a mystery why the healthcare industry has been volatile this year. With a global pandemic stressing hospitals and budget cuts due to fewer people seeking other medical care, the job market is certainly a concern for many healthcare facilities. If you are in healthcare management, it’s helpful to begin planning now for hiring and preparing for the future healthcare job market in 2021. Here are a few things you can expect in the new year.
More Telehealth Opportunities
With many members of the public concerned about visiting medical facilities, organizations that had access to remote healthcare thrived. Telehealth is great for people who don’t otherwise have access to in-person healthcare and can even reduce stress. A key to the success of a telehealth program will be hiring top talent who can handle the experience.
Travel Nursing Considerations
Travel nursing has long been a cornerstone of the medical community. They serve as stop-gap hires for a variety of roles. But with some travel restrictions and shutdowns in various areas, some nurses and facilities are becoming concerned about the role of travel nurses in the future. However, there may also be some wisdom in hiring nurses from locations with higher infection rates who can help manage the patient process and expectations.
Surgery centers where the patient arrives and leaves on the same day are also going to be very important moving forward. With hospitals overwhelmed due to COVID-19 infections, elective and simple outpatient surgeries can become neglected. With the right protocol in place, an outpatient surgery center can remain a safe place for individuals to get the care they need.
Partner with Staffing Agency
If you want to ensure that you have the right staff when you need them, creating a relationship with a staffing agency that specializes in medical placements will give you a leg up. Recruiters will work with you to find prescreened and qualified medical staff to fill a variety of placements when you need them.
