In healthcare, a new definition of work is evolving, one that moves beyond traditional patient care roles. The gig economy is catching up with healthcare and shaping the future of work. The pandemic exacerbated burnout, leading to early retirement in healthcare. However, the rapid growth of the gig economy is not merely a response to the pandemic. A recent survey of physicians and advanced practitioners of all ages, levels and employment types reveals that clinicians are re-evaluating their careers. Physicians and advanced practitioners are looking for new work arrangements providing flexibility, control, and access to newly available opportunities. The gig economy offers a sustainable staffing solution for healthcare leaders and clinicians. To effectively support this new economy, healthcare leaders must adapt and transform their approach to workforce planning and management.
This 60-minute webinar will provide you with the knowledge to:
  • Understand the forces affecting today’s clinicians, including shortages, burnout, and the economy
  • Gain perspective on what physicians and advanced practitioners are looking for and expect from an employed and contingent basis
  • Identify strategies to evolve with the gig economy and position your practice for success
