Onboarding has become the new need – to quickly integrate those new physician recruits into the inner workings of the organization. Then to get them busy as soon as possible, grow satisfaction and build loyalty.

Early onboarding programs need to focus on tightly managing all of the start-up logistics such as credentialing, scheduling and welcoming events, the goal is to advance those efforts into the strategic and relational aspects needed to engage the new physician and build up their practice. Then there are the communication and reporting components necessary to validate that onboarding is more than a nice thing to do – it is critical to ensure the organization minimized practice subsidies, turnover rates and recruitment costs.

This webinar will focus on those onboarding aspects that take the program from beginner to the advanced level. The basics will be reviewed only to set the stage. This session is really designed for a more in-depth look at how some organizations are evolving their efforts to demonstrate value and success. Whether you are manage on-boarding full time or lead it in conjunction with other responsibilities, the examples shared in this session will give you some great tips on how to improve your present program and take it to the next level.

Learning Objectives

  • Showcase ways in which organizations – both within and outside of the industry – are making their onboarding efforts more robust and impactful.
  • Learn the core elements that new physician practices need – beyond the basic orientation – to ensure their practice is developed successfully.
  • Understand the importance of decentralizing the onboarding work to multiple areas of the organization so as to integrate the value of onboarding throughout the organizational culture.
  • Review the measurement tools that will gauge and track onboarding results – both to the new physician and to the organization.
  • Gain tips and techniques for integrating leadership of onboarding into other mission critical responsibilities.

Have You Referred a New Member Lately?

Have you heard? ASPR has a Member Referral Program! It’s been in place for many years, but we’re not so sure you know about it! Here’s how it works. Whenever a new member joins ASPR, they are asked how they became aware of our organization. If they were referred by an ASPR member, the name of that member is requested.

For every member referral that ASPR receives, $10 is placed in a “pot”. Every time YOUR name is listed as someone who referred a new member, your name is entered into a raffle for a chance to win the “pot”. Last year we divvied it up into eight $100 cash prizes. The raffle drawing takes place at the ASPR Annual Business Meeting to reward a few lucky members for their referrals.

Refer someone to ASPR today (and every day) and make sure your name is entered for a chance to win the 2013 drawing! The more referrals, the bigger the “pot”, and the more chances you have to win! Thanks for the referrals! Keep ‘em comin’!
