On-demand Webinar

Hospitals and health systems have long had to supplement their clinical workforce from outside sources to meet critical needs. That balance shifted significantly during the pandemic, with greater use of travel nurses, per diem nurses and other contracted clinical staff which contributed to rising labor costs and complicated an already difficult financial situation for provider organizations. Now, with the pandemic waning, many health care executives are taking a fresh look at their clinical labor mix and implementing strategies to ensure greater consistency in coverage and better cost predictability.  

In this Leadership Scan episode, we’ll explore innovative strategies some hospitals are employing to address their near-term and long-term clinical staffing needs more economically. 

Attendees Will Learn: 

  • About the growth of the contingent nurse workforce. 
  • How to create the right balance. 
  • The benefits of building a clinical workforce strategy to: 
    • Address temporary shortages 
    • Assist in key specialty areas 
    • Expansion of internal workforce (converting contingent to permanent) 
    • Address rural workforce needs 
  • How to overcome hybrid workforce challenges. 
  • How to manage a hybrid workforce.
