Despite the incredible progress both in the medical as well as technology field, healthcare has repeatedly failed to fully satisfy its most important stakeholder– ‘the patient’. Thanks to ever increasing patient demands, the mere contribution of individual competent physicians cannot guarantee high quality and error free patient care. There is a need for a consolidated transformation in human resource management in healthcare with a team based patient centric approach with doctors as the key players. In this context, Human Resource Planning (HRP) involves evaluating, recruiting and retaining different kinds of clinical and non-clinical staff of this team for catering to health intervention needs.
Hospitals are vital components in healthcare whose revenue generation is primarily dependent on the competence of physicians on-board and their proficient services. Thereby, doctors are indirectly the true “customers” who bring patients to hospitals than just the patients themselves. To achieve this, Hospital Human Resource Management (HHRM) should ensure that hospitals employ talented doctors who can build meaningful physician engagement relationships.
Healthcare Consulting Services (HCS) plays a major role in HHRM and supports the long-term strategy of improving outcomes, lowering cost and increasing the value for patient care in hospitals.
Challenges faced by Doctors in Hospitals
How healthcare consultants can help in selecting the right doctors?
Human workforce is a core pillar that fosters hospital growth and its sustenance. This is because healthcare services have a direct link with the population’s health. Doctors are an integral part of this workforce. The professional expertise of HCS helps in recruiting and fixing appropriate remuneration for doctors. HCS also assists in training the doctors periodically to keep them abreast of the latest innovations and regulatory practices to expedite the challenges faced.
HCS has trained talents and specialized methods for tracking down leading doctors. This is backed by their proved expertise in medical manpower recruitment, selection and training and performance management. HCS deploys standard Human Resource Management (HRM) algorithms that are accredited by boards like the National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Healthcare Providers (NABH) and Joint Commission International (JCI). Thus, they are proficient in recruiting specialty doctors for various medical disciplines.
Impact of leading doctors in hospitals
Undoubtedly, leading doctors play a crucial role in making the hospital’s healthcare mission of ‘patient centricity’ successful and scaling it to higher satisfaction levels.
