An aging population, an increase in chronic conditions, staffing shortages and other pressing industry challenges are creating the perfect storm of change in the health care industry. While unemployment in health care remains relatively low, the pressure to decrease costs and increase efficiencies is creating strong competition for hiring experienced talent. This new “pay-for-performance” environment places more importance on employee engagement and patient satisfaction, all leading toward significant shifts in the health care work environment.
Amid these challenges, technology in the health care field continues to evolve and grow at a rapid pace. Compliance with legislation and policies on electronic medical records means expanding the knowledge base of an already over-extended health care workforce.
As the world of health care evolves, talent shortages and shifts in technology and culture mean that better patient care and the state of health care rely on one thing: better employees.
