Attracting and retaining qualified and experienced professionals is a particular challenge for the healthcare industry. With a continually expanding and aging population, the demand for healthcare services is barely matched by the supply of suitably qualified people. Added to the supply and demand challenges are the spiralling costs of recruiting and selecting suitable candidates from across the world.
One statistic claims that the number of people over the age of 65 is expected to double between 2000 and 2030. Since this age group makes roughly twice as many doctor’s visits as those under 65, this increase is placing huge additional demands on the provision of healthcare services—and on the need to staff such facilities. The number of physician visits by people over the age of 45 has also risen steadily during this time, and there is concern that these trends are likely to continue, despite the increasing costs of medical treatment to the man and women in the street.
The shortage of trained personnel is not limited to physicians. It is also evident in the nursing profession and—even more acutely—in allied healthcare professionals such as laboratory and radiology technicians. It need not be emphasized that any healthcare facility is only as effective as the staff that it employs. Where are these medical professionals to be found?
This is another area where Eurohealth Systems can assist.
Employing the right people is key to the success of any organisation, no more so than in the medical profession where the skills, education and training of the professional staff must be backed up by a cultural fit and an ethos of patient care which aligns with your organisation’s vision and mission for healthcare. Eurohealth Systems is well-positioned to source such human resources by being uniquely attuned to the needs of the diverse communities living in multicultural societies such as in the Middle East, the Asian sub-continent, and Africa.
