The case for a comprehensive health care onboarding solution
Physicians and advanced practice providers (APPs) reflect a delivery system’s culture and values, and provide the foundation for safe and cost-effective care delivery.
Yet clinicians often fail to achieve their full potential, in part because these critical members of the care team are rarely onboarded in an intentional, thorough and consistent manner.
The COVID-19 outbreak has caused considerable strain on physicians and APPs: 14% plan to change jobs and 18% plan to retire, temporarily close their practices or opt out of patient care.1
Clinical leaders must address clinician burnout and the mental health of their frontline, and establish a new normal for staff.
