Avoid the Staffing Scramble
Continuing the discussion on the scramble to find the “right” staff person…

Evaluate your practice capacity. When do you have the greatest demand for your services? How well are you staffed to meet this demand? If your afternoons are a higher demand time for patient care, what staffing configurations are most profitable to your practice while supporting your patient service?

Do This Now!

  • Develop a list of questions to ask yourself before beginning the hiring process. Start with, “Do I really need to fill this position?” This will enable you to know “if” and “when” you need to hire.
  • Determine staffing needs based on your current level of productivity and factor in future growth you anticipate or desire.
  • Call a team meeting and invite everyone’s input on what level of staffing is appropriate to maintain patient service, quality and practice productivity.
