Every healthcare organization knows that finding qualified candidates for leadership positions can feel like a losing battle. Not only is the pool of potential medical executives growing increasingly slim but finding the creative incentives that propel your facility to the top of the prospect list can be equally fraught. This may seem contrary to the influx of employment statistics flooding the airwaves day after day. Despite economic upswings or downturns, physicians and medical professionals are consistently in greater demand as the American population enjoys longer life expectancies. We agree, that’s a great problem to have. That said, when 2032 rolls around and the number of citizens over the age of 65 has increased by 48 percent, data suggests executive healthcare recruiting will be exponentially more challenging. That’s why there’s no better time to consider healthcare recruiting services from DataDx to expertly handle your medical recruiting. You have enough to do to ensure your patients’ excellent care, let us plan your executive healthcare recruiting strategy for you.

At its core, healthcare as we know it has dramatically shifted over the course of the Covid-19 pandemic and there is plenty of evidence to suggest these are permanent changes. Finding qualified candidates was already challenging prior to the global pandemic and those that are worth hiring are savvy enough to know their value. According to the Health eCareers 2018 Healthcare Recruiting Trends Report, 34 percent of hiring managers reported a noticeable uptick in job offer rejections in 2018 compared to the previous year. That is most likely a contributing factor for the 37 percent who also note that securing appropriate employees is taking considerably longer. Since we all know that time is often measured by lost currency, the internal process of recruiting for the healthcare industry is increasingly expensive.
Recruiting healthcare executives that can do the job is one challenge but finding staff that will stay for the long haul is quite another. Turnover has been on the rise in Physician and Dental practices for quite some time and 61 percent of surveyed employers said they experienced an undesirable amount of voluntary departures. Healthcare recruitment firms like DataDx have an extensive screening process to ensure that you are bringing in people who are not only capable but who are also the right fit for your organization which helps curb turnover. We take the time necessary to give potential candidates a good experience so they can feel good about the change they’re making. Our process ensures that there are no surprises waiting down the line that might make them reconsider their decision just a few months in which saves everyone a lot of wasted time, money, and hard feelings. That kind of attention given to, not only your needs but those of your future associate, is so important for engaging the right people.
Enlisting recruiting agencies for healthcare executive staffing takes such a huge weight off of your shoulders. We do the leg work to filter out those whose credentials may look impressive at first glance but do not have the working knowledge or temperament to succeed in the position you’re hiring for. Of course, you are always in charge of who you bring on to your team, but wouldn’t it be nice to only interview candidates who have gone through a vigorous screening process before their resume lands on your desk?
Experience still matters.
Hiring guidelines that worked well ten years ago are irrelevant today and you need a healthcare recruitment agency that is creatively current in their methods. You need look no further than DataDx.
We have been developing lasting relationships with prominent MBA programs and medical institutions for many decades, so we operate from a very large pool for our executive healthcare recruitment. We utilize those broad connections to hone in on the best candidates that fit a profile tailor-made for your specific organization and the position you’re seeking to fill. How do we do that? We’re glad you asked.
From our very first meeting, our goal is to learn everything we can about the position you’re hiring for and the professional culture you promote. That step may be the most consequential because once we know all there is to know about your organization, we have what we need to curate qualified candidates who fit in as though they’ve been there all along. DataDx doesn’t draw from a bank of generic applicants like many recruiters do. We actually pull from our extensive healthcare recruiting resources to find leaders uniquely suited to your practice.
Believe it or not, many physicians and leaders aren’t naturally adept hiring managers and do better with some tried and true recruiting guidance for healthcare. We go above and beyond for our clients, even so far as to offer interview training so you have a solid structure to follow. That includes tailored interview questions, advice on how to ask those questions as well as conducting the pre-interviews ourselves as part of our initial screening process. We will be there every step of the way because DataDx offers nothing short of a full-service approach to executive healthcare recruiting.
From the moment you connect with us, we are immediately working to fill your open seat. The executive healthcare recruitment flow should go something like this:
