ASPR Annual Conference Sneak Peek: Physician Recruitment in a Post-Reform Era
Registration is now open for the 2013 ASPR Annual Conference! Here is a sneak peek at one of the keynote sessions. The 2013 ASPR Annual Conference will feature M. Shane Foreman, Principal & Founder, 3d Health, who will present Physician Recruitment in a Post Reform Era on Wednesday, August 14.
There are 32 essential elements included in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“Healthcare Reform”). While interesting and dizzying at the same time, many of the elements simply do not impact physician recruitment. However, there are portions of Healthcare Reform that will fundamentally change physician recruitment.
The Post-Reform Era will call for a different type of physician, a more sophisticated physician recruitment process, and physician recruiters with new and different skill sets. This session will provide participants with the knowledge, insight, and energy to evolve into the physician recruiter of the future.
Participants will learn:
- The key elements within the Affordable Care Act that impact the future of their profession.
- How Healthcare Reform impacts the necessary skill set of physicians.
- The profile of the ideal physician candidate in a post-reform era.
- The required changes to the physician recruitment process.
- How physician recruiters will need to evolve to thrive in the new environment.
Shane Foreman is a noted healthcare strategist, author, and speaker. He helps establish and grow healthcare businesses. Shane applies his 23 years of professional expertise and experience to working with hospitals and health systems to define high impact strategies, relationships, and business structures.
Shane’s work has been published and cited across the country in numerous publications including ADVANCE for Imaging & Radiation Oncology, CAP Today, The Dallas Morning News, Diagnostic Imaging, Family Practice Management, Healthcare Financial Management, HealthLeaders Magazine, Journal of the Association of Staff Physician Recruiters, Radiology Business Journal, SmartBrief, and World Research Group, to name a few.

JASPR Feature: Taking an interest in Pinterest
Taking an interest in Pinterest
By Miranda Grace, DASPR, Physician Recruiter, Lewistown Hospital
When it comes to social media use in recruitment, Kendra Hall is on top of things! Kendra, Greenville Hospital System (GHS) University Medical Center’s physician recruiter of almost two years, has been a social media guru since its inception. When the opportunity arose to implement social media in her recruitment strategy, she jumped on it; particularly, when her marketing team brought up the use of Pinterest. “I went straight home and started to set up our page,” Kendra explained, “Right now, Pinterest is the third most popular social media site out there, when job seekers start to use it, I’ll be ahead of the game.”

Unethical Behavior of Vendors – What You Can Do
Have you encountered unethical behaviors with a vendor? If the vendor does business with ASPR as an exhibitor, sponsor, advertiser, or Corporate Contributor, there may be something that we can do to address the situation. ASPR now has an Ethics Committee that is tasked with addressing unethical behaviors of ASPR vendors based on the ASPR Vendor Ethics Policy.
The ASPR Vendor Ethics Policy sets expectations and standards for Vendor Partners doing business with ASPR. ASPR expects each of its Vendor Partners to operate and act in full compliance with this Ethics Policy and all applicable laws and regulations.
The ASPR Ethics Committee has received and addressed two complaints since its inception, both regarding Vendor Partners’ staff representing themselves as physicians (or a dentist in one case) in provider databases. Both Vendor Partners received warnings and have assured ASPR that this type of behavior is considered unacceptable within their organizations and will not occur again.
If a Vendor Partner is found to have consistently violated the policy or found to have made an egregious violation, they could lose their ability to conduct business with ASPR. That means they may no longer be able to exhibit at the Annual Conference, advertise, or participate in the Corporate Contributor program.
If you encounter unethical behavior of a Vendor Partner, ASPR encourages you to first attempt to resolve your concern directly with the vendor prior to submitting a complaint to the ASPR Ethics Committee. If a satisfactory resolution is not obtained, a formal complaint may be filed with the ASPR Ethics Committee. ASPR Members, or anyone with information relevant to a possible violation of this policy, may file a complaint with the Ethics Committee by completing a Vendor Ethics Violation Form.
May Webinar: Advancing Your Onboarding Efforts
Registration for this May 29th webinar is now full. If you were unable to register and would like to view the webinar, please watch for it to be posted in the On-Demand Webinar Archive.
Speakers: Donna Ecclestone, FASPR, Associate Director, Physician Integration, Duke Medical Center and Allison McCarthy, Principal, Barlow/McCarthy
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.
- 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.
