Sourcing Better Options for Healthcare Recruiting

Inline started 20 years ago as a retained physician recruiting firm. Early on, a client told us, “If you just find me a pipeline of candidates to interview, I can do the hiring.” That was the beginning of the subscription model of sourcing. Clients could pay us one monthly fee and interview and hire as many candidates as they wanted or needed. Today, Inline is truly the only “sourcing” company that exists in the physician and medical search world.

We developed RCP, our own sourcing platform to automate and streamline our process with AI and data matching. However, using technology and algorithms is only part of the solution. The other critical part of the solution comes from our team of professional, highly trained recruiters who source, screen and match candidates specifically to the needs of our clients. This human intervention allows us to send only candidates who both match, and want to work for our clients.

Over the last 15 years, our database has grown to more than 1.5 million records, and because of our professional Recruiter team, that data is scrubbed and updated every day. We are proud of the adaptive work we’ve done to deliver the best healthcare talent to our clients efficiently through the many changes in industry, technology, and global health.

Prescribing Success: New Year Resolutions for Physician Recruiting Teams

As the healthcare industry steps into a new year, physician recruitment teams find themselves at the forefront of a challenging landscape, with the demand for qualified medical professionals reaching unprecedented heights. In the spirit of embracing change and setting the stage for success, let's explore some New Year resolutions for physician recruiting teams.

1. Embrace Technology with a Human Touch

In a world increasingly dominated by technological advancements, it's crucial to strike a balance between efficiency and the personal touch. Leverage tools and platforms that streamline processes, but never lose sight of the importance of human connection. Remember, the right technology enhances the recruitment process, making it more efficient and personalized.

2. Prioritize Candidate Experience:

Acknowledge that candidates are evaluating your organization just as much as you are evaluating them. Ensure a seamless and positive experience from the first point of contact through the onboarding process. Utilize the resources available to gather insights into optimizing the candidate journey.

3. Data-Driven Decision Making:

Leverage the power of data to make informed decisions. Analyze trends in physician preferences, regional demands, and market insights to refine your recruitment strategy. AAPPR provides multiple comprehensive reports; use them to your advantage to identify patterns and opportunities.

4. Build Robust Partnerships:

Establishing strong partnerships within your organization and with external stakeholders is crucial. Collaborate with HR, marketing, and other relevant departments to create a unified approach to physician recruitment. Platforms like Inline Group can facilitate these collaborations by providing a centralized hub for information and communication.

5. Invest in Continuous Learning:

The healthcare landscape is dynamic, with new trends and regulations emerging regularly. Encourage your team to engage in continuous learning to stay ahead of the curve. Leverage educational resources to keep your team well-informed.

6. Diversify Recruitment Channels:

Relying on traditional channels alone may limit your reach. Explore new and innovative recruitment channels, including social media, virtual career fairs, and online communities. Stay adaptable to changes in how physicians seek employment opportunities.

7. Develop a Strong Employer Brand:

Your website can serve as a powerful tool in building and showcasing your employer brand. Ensure that your online presence reflects your organization's values, culture, and commitment to employee well-being. A compelling employer brand can be a magnet for top-tier talent.

8. Enhance Retention Strategies:

Recognize that the recruitment process doesn't end with hiring. Develop and implement strategies to enhance physician retention. Leverage data from your own recruiting history and other sources to understand the factors influencing physician satisfaction and engagement.

As we step into the new year, these resolutions aim to equip physician recruiting teams with a holistic approach to talent acquisition. By combining the insights provided by platforms like Inline Group with broader industry trends, teams can navigate the evolving landscape with confidence. Here's to a successful year of attracting, hiring, and retaining the best physicians for your organization's continued growth and success.

Recruitment Budget Planning for 2024

As the end of the year draws near, your facility has either completed its 2024 recruiting budget, or it's in the the final stages of establishing the plan for next year. So how can you head into the new year confidently feeling like you’re prepared for your facility’s hiring needs? 

The recruiting industry has a tendency to be reactive. Which, for a while, made sense. After all, why spend money on recruiting when you don’t have openings? But as the physician shortage continues and healthcare workers leave their careers due to burnout, openings aren’t just a possibility—they’re a guarantee. Which means the question is no longer, “Will I have to invest in hiring services?” The question is, “How much will I have to invest in hiring services?” 

Let’s consider your investment options:

Recruitment Subscriptions

It’s no secret that physicians are demanding higher salaries each year, especially because less people are seeking healthcare professions than ever before. This leads many healthcare recruiters to believe that they need to have a large recruiting budget in order to attract top talent. But that’s not always the case. A recruitment subscription could be the right option for your facility as it allows your jobs to stay top of mind for a large pool of providers while paying a small, monthly fee. And as your recruiting needs change, (because they definitely will!), the pipeline of candidates created for you is your resource to take advantage of. If your facility would benefit from high-volume, low-cost hiring, our Essential Subscription is the best option for your budget. 

Hybrid Solutions

Recruitment subscriptions and candidate pipelines are beneficial for any healthcare facility. But maybe you’ve already planned your 2024 budget and you need something with a lower monthly cost. Hybrid subscriptions exist to keep your monthly cost low, while still building rapport with candidates throughout the year. This solution comes with a small placement fee paid upon hire. Sometimes, it’s easier to adjust the budget when you know you’re hiring a provider and filling in lost revenue. If this sounds like your budget plan for the next year, Inline’s Flex Subscription may be the best for you.

The On Demand Option

Despite never charging placement fees in the past, some clients expressed a dire need for no-risk sourcing. Thus, we added our On Demand subscription model. You still receive the same great sourcing and screening from Inline. However, you pay zero fees upfront. You simply pay a completion fee once you make a hire. And to make your recruiting life even easier, you can sign up online anytime. 

The Best Plan is the One You Have

Healthcare recruiting is anything but predictable. Ultimately, the best plan is to simple have a plan at all! As you head into 2024, Inline can provide you with a sourcing and screening platform that fits your budget and sets you up for long-term hiring success. And if you're still not sure what your investment in a recruiting service should be, you can always Get a Quote directly from our website without ever picking up the phone. Just tell us what your facility's hiring needs are for the new year and we'll send you a no hassle quote in 1-2 business days. Happy budget planning and Happy New Year!
