St. Paul, MN, January 08, 2013 — The Association of Staff Physician Recruiters (ASPR) has opened its 2013 ASPR In-House Physician Recruitment Benchmarking Survey. ASPR uses the data collected to analyze the active physician and advanced practice provider searches conducted in 2012 by in-house physician recruiters employed by hospitals and other healthcare organizations across the United States. To participate in the survey, please visit our website.
“The benchmarking survey will reveal national trends for the physician recruitment industry,” says Jennifer Metivier, MS, FASPR, executive director of ASPR. “Benchmarks are critical as we constantly strive for improved processes and results to meet the healthcare needs within our communities.”
“With the passage of healthcare reform legislation and the physician shortage upon us, physician recruitment has become increasingly competitive, and organizations are finding it more difficult to fill their open provider positions,” says Metivier. “We believe our annual survey helps healthcare organizations estimate how long it may take to fill certain positions, calculate costs to fill a vacancy and make strategic recruitment decisions to deal with the physician shortage.”
In-house physician recruitment professionals who participate in the survey will receive free access to the final report, Organization Benchmarking Report (comparing their organization to national data), and access to the searchable data.
