Happy National Locum Tenens Week! As a part of our festivities, we’re sharing stories from healthcare facilities about the value they’ve found in staffing locum tenens providers.
As the advancements of the digital age progress and staffing needs deepen because of the physician shortage, our clients acknowledge telemedicine as a tool that “may always be needed.”
With telemedicine services, challenges surrounding rural healthcare facilities are alleviated, providing cost-effective care on the patient’s end — and on yours.
We reached out to our clients regarding the biggest challenges they face when staffing healthcare providers. Many of them acknowledge that locum providers offer a unique solution to facilities in a pinch. One chief human resources officer said her facility appreciates that, “in emergencies, someone is available for client care.”
With telemedicine, the same CHRO argues, this accessibility is even greater. Thanks to telemedicine services, locum tenens providers are helping facilities care for patients by increasing their access to top-notch care.
If your facility is seeking a way to provide immediate care in a cost-effective way, locum tenens providers and a telemedicine solution may be a great option for you.
