Clinician Satisfaction for Overall Success

By Mary Gannon, Chief Nursing Officer

It’s no secret that healthcare is, by its own nature, stressful. There’s a lot of responsibility when some decisions literally can result in a life or death situation. It’s not for everyone, but those who choose healthcare as their career path want to ultimately help others. What unites clinicians and other healthcare professionals is their desire to help others live their best lives possible.

That’s why it’s so important for organizations to recruit and retain the best talent available. But, in a market where the demand for professionals far exceeds the supply, it’s hard for healthcare organizations to fulfill that need. As more and more individuals require behavioral health, social services and post-acute care services, the problem isn’t going to get better any time soon.

It’s essential for organizations across healthcare to have a finger on the pulse of staff outlook and have the tools and strategies in place to help manage areas of improving the clinician experience. Without maintaining experienced and qualified staff on hand to provide services at an optimal level, healthcare organizations can expect to experience trickle-down effects that can affect their bottom line and their ability to thrive in the long-run.

With so much focus on meeting clinical outcomes and consumer satisfaction, tending to the contentment of staff can easily be overlooked, but the truth is, it’s equally as valuable. Taking an approach to recruit and retain clinicians who are satisfied with their ability to make a true impact within their organization, with consumers and, ultimately, on their own career, organizations can greatly transform experiences for everyone involved.
