Amid an ongoing shortage of nurses and a competitive environment for physicians, healthcare executives are even more challenged to maintain adequate staffing needs in flu season. The influx of additional ER visits, appointment requests and inbound patient calls drive up costs and overburden clinical teams, often leading to nurse and physician turnover due to burnout.
As healthcare executives, we must develop a fine acuity to these factors, and to proactively develop and execute strategic approaches to prevent the erosion of clinical staff, patients and revenue.
These topics and other critical issues are addressed in this complimentary whitepaper. It presents data and analysis on the business effects of flu season and provides strategies and solutions that deliver measurable results for some of the largest and most successful healthcare systems around the country.
