A recent study conducted for the AAMC by IHS Inc., predicts that by the year 2025 the United States will face a shortage of between 46,000 to 90,000 physicians. Needless to say, the competition will be fierce; but there is help. New data-driven approaches to finding the right candidates can help evaluate a range of criteria, turn around references more efficiently, and get much needed practitioners up and running quicker.
Today’s online reference checking solutions add significantly more value to the reference checking process:
- Hire faster, and more efficiently — increase the number and quality of references received.
- Recruit patient satisfaction superstars — provide references with job-specific survey questions that target high performing candidates who are less likely to be terminated in the first year.
- Champion diversity — reach beyond language barriers to discover and hire a capable and talented workforce.
- Build a talent pipeline — turn references into future job prospects and spend less time hunting for candidates with the right skillset.
Delivering faster credentialing through online peer reference responses
In addition to online reference checking, online technology for credentialing can speed the hiring process by solving one of the most frustrating reasons for credentialing delays — incomplete peer reference responses. By providing easy, online, mobile-enabled forms for peer references and those who complete hospital affiliation verifications, responses are now being returned on average in just 4-5 days.
