Are You Making the Multi-Million Dollar Mistake?

Are You Making the Multi-Million Dollar Mistake?

Leadership Webinar Delivers Four Proven and Practical Retention Strategies

Physician turnover is a costly problem the healthcare industry struggles to solve. According to a recent American Medical Association-led study, primary care physician turnover leads to almost
$980 million in excess healthcare costs. Other studies have shown that turnover impacts quality, erodes patient satisfaction and costs hospitals an average of a million of dollars per physician, when recruitment expenses and lost revenue are considered.

“It’s fundamentally impossible for a healthcare organization to consistently deliver strategic growth and measurable results without prioritizing physician retention as a primary focus,” said Tammy Tiller-Hewitt, FACHE, CEO of Tiller-Hewitt HealthCare Strategies.

With decades of experience working with healthcare organizations to improve physician relations and retention, Tiller-Hewitt has found that too many organizations confuse onboarding with standard orientation. It’s a multi-million dollar mistake leaders cannot afford to make in today’s environment, when physician recruitment is so competitive and turnover is escalating.

“Leaders need to stop the revolving door with a strategic retention program that starts long before recruitment and extends far beyond the physician’s first year,” Tiller-Hewitt noted.

Tiller-Hewitt’s upcoming Leadership Webinar “Physician Retention Strategies that Work” on August 17th, 2022, at 11 AM Central delivers four key strategies to improve retention:

  1. Ramp-up: Position new physicians and APPs for rapid ramp-up in their practices, despite the unavoidable disruption
  2. Mentorship: Super-charge this proven technique to improve early engagement and long-term retention
  3. Family Integration: The provider’s needs are so much more than professional. Most have families that if not effectively integrated becomes a significant retention (flight) risk
  4. Engagement - Integration is a team sport: Involve stakeholders in process improvement to optimize and streamline a gold standard onboarding and integration process

The Year of the Leader series of webinars, podcasts and workshops incorporates Tiller-Hewitt’s 20+ years of experience delivering rapid impact strategic growth and measurable results for hundreds of organizations nationwide.
