What Is the Importance of Healthcare Executive Recruiting?
Research indicates that 2020, the US will face a shortage of 90,000 physicians, and this shortfall grows to 130,000 by 2025. Meanwhile, the private sector, including pharma, biotech and medical device research and manufacture, actively recruit physicians, giving them a choice of more professional paths outside of primary patient care. Simultaneously, the demand for healthcare services will grow rapidly over the next ten years, driven by an aging baby boomer population and increased access to healthcare for all Americans through the Affordable Care Act. Meanwhile, the supply of healthcare providers will simultaneously decrease. Without effective executive health search systems, we can expect shortages of qualified physicians and nurses over the next ten years.
