Healthcare Challenges

With only a few months until major reforms in the Affordable Care Act scheduled to go into effect on January 1, 2014, the U.S. healthcare industry is racing to put in place the building blocks for handling new payment/care models and a growing number of newly insured patients. As the biggest overhaul of U.S. healthcare since the enactment of Medicare and Medicaid gets closer, it’s clear that severe talent shortages could jeopardize the future of the healthcare industry. Patient care is being threatened by the lack of qualified clinical professionals, resulting in increased employee workloads, increased risk of patient error, increased risk of occupational injury and an increase in employee turnover.

Additionally, cost pressures are forcing healthcare companies to be leaner, yet more productive than ever before—resulting in a need for top-quality talent and the tools that help manage them.
