Four areas you must focus on for success

Clinical Team Insights that directly respond to the clinical workforce crisis. Four imperatives to cultivate an optimal workforce strategy are discussed in this brief. They were identified through evaluation of the 2020 Clinical Team Insight’s data and assessment of the current healthcare landscape.

 

The right people, the right process, the right care

APPs are an integral part of the clinical team and these roles will continue to grow and expand. Health care organizations benefit from supporting APPs and physicians to work at the top of their scope of practice allowing patients to receive effective and efficient care which is essential to meeting today’s value-based health care demands.

A data-driven approach 

Identify opportunities for improvement within your organizational structure and operations. Improving the utilization of your workforce and streamlining processes enables you to succeed in the current value-based care landscape. In addition, peer-to-peer resources and networking opportunities provide meaningful solutions to optimize the clinical team and its care delivery model.

The Vizient Center for Advancing Provider Practices (CAP2™) was the first of its kind — a solution focused on optimizing APPs. The program helped organizations understand where and how APPs were being utilized, and identified practice variations. It also helped organizations develop APP leadership structures to provide professional development and representation for this rapidly growing group of professionals.

We were able to make a strategic effort to optimize our ambulatory clinical workforce, which enabled us to see an additional $1.8 million in revenue.
