The Significance of a Physician Needs Assessment

Presenter: Randy Gott, Senior Vice President, Coker Group

Webinar Overview

This webinar will focus on a key element of successful provider recruitment planning - determining physician needs through a comprehensive physician needs assessment. The needs assessment will assist organizations in determining and documenting needs by specialty and in the development of an organizational recruitment plan. This session will provide a framework for the development of a recruitment plan and documentation of the needs of the service area on a specialty specific basis. Discussion will focus on determining an organization’s service area, understanding the make-up of the providers and the service area, using ratios to document need, how qualitative factors can impact needs in a specialty, documenting factors that go beyond population ratios in determining needs and the development of a recruitment plan and priorities by specialty.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the significance of a physician needs assessment as a precursor to recruitment
  • Recognize the importance of documenting needs in the development of recruitment strategies and incentive
  • Describe the factors that impact community needs in provider recruitment

The case focused attention on the legality of practices that hospitals commonly use to provide physician recruitment assistance to recruited physicians and affiliated medical practices.
