Building + Maintaining a Stable Workforce
Triumphing Over the Ever-Changing Healthcare Landscape
As the healthcare sector struggles with its most recent existential threat: the recruitment and retention of essential healthcare professionals, such as medical assistants (MAs), certified nursing assistants (CNAs), and medical laboratory scientists IMLSs), the crisis has far-reaching consequences, including increased workloads for existing staff, compromised patient care, and the growing need for more effective recruitment strategies.
A primary factor contributing to the current hiring crisis is that our aging population, coupled with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, has placed immense pressure on the healthcare system. As a result, hospitals are struggling to meet this demand with a limited workforce, intensifying the competition for qualified healthcare professionals.
The lack of adequate training programs exacerbates the hiring issue. Due to the rising demand for healthcare services, there is a pressing need for more training programs and better access to education for those interested in entering the field. The cost and time commitment required for pursuing relevant certifications can be prohibitive for many aspiring healthcare workers and many aspiring MAs and CNAs are deterred by the high costs of training, which often come without any guarantee of employment.
Remedying the situation won’t happen overnight, but with Oak Point’s Partner Solutions—and our Hire-Develop-Deploy-Upskill model—we work with our partners to strengthen the core of the hospital workforce at the emerging talent level to accelerate opportunities for the organization, its current and prospective employees, and the community.
