Staffing Facts and Information
The healthcare staffing industry experienced ~15% revenue growth in 2016, which was complemented with a healthy merger and acquisition environment that has continued into 2017. The industry’s positive growth trend is sustainable because of the high demand for healthcare professionals, resulting from rising levels of US healthcare spend.
Additionally, healthcare facilities have faced challenges in predicting patient inflow, which results in fluctuations in the need for staffing personnel and a greater demand for temporary staffing services as facilities can rely on a rolodex of healthcare professionals the staffing group has obtained. The shortage of physicians is also creating a large demand for both locum tenens staffing and permanent physician staffing services. Facilities who utilize healthcare staffing companies also have less need to improve the infrastructure of their HR department as staffing firms serve as a less expensive and higher quality option. This particularly holds true as staffing companies improve their operating models through the use of Vendor Management Service (VMS) and other staffing technologies aimed at improving the overall employment process for both facilities and professionals.
Shortage of Healthcare Professionals
The United States is currently experiencing the widest gap between number of healthcare jobs that are open and the number of hires. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 30% of healthcare jobs in the United States were unfilled in 2015, and that number increased to 50% in 2016. Between 2014 and 2022, 1.2 million vacancies will emerge for registered nurses. In addition, the Association of American Medical Colleges reports that projected physician demand will continue to grow faster than supply, leading to a projected shortfall of between 40,800 and 104,900 physicians by 2030.
One of the main drivers behind the shortage of healthcare workers is the aging population. Between 2015 and 2030, the population of individuals age 65 and older is projected to grow by 55%, while the population age 18 and under is projected to grow by a mere 5%. Seniors are more likely to develop chronic conditions (heart disease, cancer, non-infectious airway diseases, etc.) leading to an increased need for various healthcare services, therefore driving the need for additional healthcare providers such as nurses and physicians. As the population is aging, the physician workforce is also getting older. According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, 1 out of every 3 physicians is over the age of 55. A significant number of physicians are at or nearing retirement, which is another driving factor behind the projected physician shortfall.
TOP 3 Healthcare Staffing Trends For 2019
The year 2018 seems destined to be a dynamic one for healthcare staffing. Perched in the midst of a healthcare boom, this year is likely to see a record demand for healthcare workers.
According to Staffing Industry Analysts projections, “Healthcare staffing services will desperately need workers through 2018.” This is partly as a result of record numbers of people getting insured under the Affordable Healthcare Act (ACA). It is also partly as a result of an aging population.
In some instances, healthcare recruiters will actually struggle to fill certain critical positions. According to the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM), 4 out of the 10 most difficult jobs to fill in 2018 will be in the healthcare industry. The bottom line is that 2019 will a busy year for healthcare staffing services. Even then, there are certain trends which will be driving these services. In a nutshell, the top 2018 medical staffing trends to look out for are the following:
1. Registered Nurses: The New Hot Property. - The registered nurse is projected to become one of the most in-demand positions over the next decade. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the demand for RNs will grow by 19% over the next seven years. This will partly arise from the more than 526,800 nurses who will retire over the next few years. A significant portion of those nurses will begin to retire in 2016. As a result, the demand for registered nurses will spike significantly. This will make RNs among the top 10 toughest jobs to fill in 2018, according to SHRM. Besides retirement, many states in the US are passing laws mandating physicians to work fewer hours. This means that RNs are undertaking more duties traditionally performed by physicians. This multi-tasking capability will make RNs even more in demand. Basically, registered nurses will be the hot property in 2019. The greatest demand will be in the areas of licensed vocational nursing, licensed practical nursing and advanced practical nursing. Given their relative scarcity, medical recruiters and staffing services will have to figure out creative ways to attract RNs.
2. Health Techs: A Major Recruitment Driver. - Technology is currently one of the major drivers of increased healthcare employment. The other is an aging populace. In 2019, this trend is set to continue. In fact, there will be new employment opportunities provided by advances in healthcare technology. There are two major novel areas which will see increases of recruitment – thanks to technological advances. The first is medical informatics. Over the past few years, medical informatics have been slowly gaining prominence in medical establishments. These crunch large amounts of healthcare data, and make inferences which are critical towards providing patients with holistic care.
3. “Soft Skills”: A Key Hiring Criterion. - Over the last few years, medical service providers have started focusing on more than just the technical aspects of treatment and care. They have been focusing more on patient satisfaction. This is partly a result of growing patient expectations and demands. As more patients are being forced to pay larger portions of their healthcare – thanks to high deductible plans – a kind of consumerism is coming into healthcare. Patients are demanding a better quality of service – beyond just traditional therapies and medical procedures.
This is has been slowly forcing healthcare recruiters to look beyond technical knowledge and skills. They are now considering “soft skills” such as listening skills, a good bedside manner, communication skills and even a customer service background.
In 2019, these “soft skills” are likely to become a major recruitment criterion. This is because as more aged people demand health services, these skills will be key in providing patients with the kind of care they demand (and deserve).
In a nutshell, those are the top three 2016 medical staffing trends. Therefore, every recruiter and medical staffing service provider needs to watch out for these trends. Staying ahead of these trends will increase chances of survival, and ultimately success in the New Year.
