Healthcare professionals are in greater demand more than ever, but often the process of landing that ideal job placement means jumping through hoops or going through several avenues to find a travel job, let alone the right one. There's a better way for travelers to land their next travel job without all the complications. The future of healthcare staffing is putting travelers first, so healthcare professionals seeking their next assignment can know about pay transparency, location details, and other important factors when deciding if that next travel assignment is the right move.
Investing in healthcare professionals
Employee happiness is important for personal growth and the growth of companies as well. More studies show that when employees are happy, their organizations grow too. One study shows that happy employees are 20% more productive than unhappy ones. In healthcare, happy employees means better quality healthcare for patients. The goal for healthcare facilities and staff is to provide quality patient care. This means creating a culture of patient safety among those who work in the healthcare setting, and that starts with investing in healthcare professionals.
Defining Happiness In The Workplace
So, happiness is linked to productivity. But what does it mean to be “happy” in the workplace?
Quality healthcare puts patients first
Don Berwick, MD, MPP, Former President and CEO of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement describes six points of quality in healthcare: safety, effectiveness, patient-centeredness, timeliness, efficiency, and equity. These are marked as the key areas for healthcare to maintain and improve upon.
Providing safety in quality healthcare is defined as reducing hazards and risks in a healthcare environment as it relates to patients. Simply enough, keep patients safe. The cornerstone effectiveness is matching science to healthcare, in order to avoid overusing care that doesn’t help patients and continue to use the things that do help patient wellness. Quality healthcare means people should be in control of their own healthcare. Healthcare professionals should put patients at the center of their own healthcare, i.e. – patient-centeredness. Timeliness is important to avoid needless healthcare delays so patients can get the best care as soon as possible. Efficiency is shown in avoiding healthcare waste, in avoiding record loss and being effective with healthcare resources.
Quality patient care is dependent on the right workforce with the right skills and education. So, to find the best people for the job, we need to make it easier for the best people to search and apply for those jobs. The healthcare industry must find ways to boost the abilities of the current healthcare travel workforce and streamline the process of getting their next travel job.
