Physician Needs Assessment & Medical Staff Development Planning

Address long-term strategic community and physician needs.

With the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) projecting that the United States could face a deficit of 139,000 physicians by 2033, it has become increasingly important for hospitals and health systems to plan appropriately to meet the changing needs of their communities for the future.

We help hospitals and health system leadership analyze, plan, and manage long-term physician strategy efforts based on the needs of the community and aligned with the strategic plan. While doing so, it is essential to document physician need while meeting recruiting regulations. First, we identify the specialty areas of concern through multiple tools (e.g., detailed documentation of current service area providers and their full-time-equivalent status, physician-to-population ratios, medical staff interviews/surveys, market-specific dynamics, attrition analysis, population projections, etc.). Then, our team works with hospital leadership to prioritize and develop targeted strategies to meet the physician recruitment needs and improve access within their geographic service area. Additionally, we work with our clients to supplement these services by developing detailed physician recruitment policies and procedures, evaluate fair market value/commercial reasonableness further documenting market need and physician retention strategies to help health systems keep the qualified physicians they’ve worked so hard to recruit.

Our nationally recognized experts are frequent speakers, authors, and resources for multiple-facility health systems with overlapping or disparate markets, pediatric hospitals as well as stand-alone community-based hospitals committed to meeting the healthcare needs of their service areas. Whether your organization needs to update your physician workforce plan, complete a comprehensive analysis for your clinically integrated network to address the changing market needs as you transition to value-based care or complete a specific analysis for a particular service line, our advisors can customize a solution to meet your needs.
