Correlating physician supply and demand: Medical Staff Development Planning
A significant part of the growth and success of a hospital is dependent upon the right mix of physicians and specialists. However, the demand for these professionals greatly outweighs the supply. As the physician workforce ages, hospitals are forced to compete for the recruitment of new talent. And to add to the complexity, hospitals must contend with Stark and IRS regulations regarding recruitment of new physicians. Without strategic analysis and careful planning, physician recruitment programs may become stagnant and the hospitals will suffer. This is where Medical Staff Development Planning from Community Hospital Corporation (CHC) can help.
Community Hospital Consulting (CHC Consulting), the management and consulting arm of CHC, creates a medical staff development plan to meet regulatory requirements by determining the number of physicians needed in the community for each specialty. The plan also builds in transition planning based on medical staff composition factors such as specialty and age of each physician.
Correlating physician supply and specialties with market demand and conditions allows CHC to effectively support hospital leadership in its physician recruitment and retention efforts.
CHC Consulting Medical Staff Development Planning encompasses the following components:
"CHC is a trusted business companion that has paired nicely with our organization. The data they provide makes each day run more efficiently, giving me the opportunity to focus on recruiting quality physicians."
Michelle D. Wiltz, Director of Physician Recruiting, Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas
"Competing for limited physician resources can be challenging – especially for community and rural hospitals. Hospital leaders need to be strategic in their recruitment approach. Our Medical Staff Planning process can help identify community needs, while gaining involvement and consensus of the hospital medical staff."
Cindy Matthews, Executive Vice President of, Marketing and Strategic Development, Community Hospital Corporation
After this thorough analysis, CHC is able to draw the following conclusions:
Based on these conclusions, CHC Consulting presents a formal written plan and recommendations to help community hospitals with their transition planning, medical staff recruitment and development.
