July Webinar: LEAN Recruiting: Successful Physician Search, for Less
Register today for this free webinar scheduled for July 24 at 1:00 EDT.
Speaker: Steve Marsh, Managing Partner, The Medicus Firm
With the current state of the economy and of the healthcare industry, reducing overhead costs has never been so crucial to the long-term success and survival of a healthcare facility. This includes the operating costs of the physician recruiting department. There are several keys to reducing the per-search costs of your recruitment: 1) Decrease cash outlay such as vendors, in-house recruiting staff, supplies, travel. 2) Refine your search process to be more effective and efficient. By improving success rate and tightening your recruiting cycle, you can save valuable time and money.
This session will help participants learn how to analyze their recruiting budget and implement the necessary changes to reduce expenditures without sacrificing quality and results in physician recruitment. We’ll provide recruiting budgets and success stories from several medical facilities to help participants manage their own departments more effectively.
Learn how to apply the five LEAN principles of process improvement to your physician recruiting department:
- Identify what creates value (what works) in your recruiting department.
- Identify all the steps of the recruitment process/cycle.
- Make those processes flow.
- Accurately identify and recruit only what is needed.
- Continually remove/improve wasteful practices or expenditures and strive for perfection.
