When we ask leaders if they have a provider onboarding program, we often hear “Yes, of course.” Then, we ask how long and hear the standard “A couple days to a couple months.” We are here to tell you that is NOT an onboarding program – that is orientation! Confusing the two can literally be a multi-million dollar mistake. Instead, imagine building a gold-standard physician onboarding system within your hospital with the power to: Cut credentialing time by two-thirds Accelerate ramp-up to full productivity by nine months Lower turnover by 75% Improve culture and satisfaction Underinvesting Is a Common Cause of Costly Turnover Given the potential impact on revenue, it’s important to know how effective onboarding can build your bottom line. But, first let’s start where most organizations are today. Many hospitals operate under the false assumption that “orientation” is the same as “onboarding.” If that sounds like you – you are not alone. The majority (88%) of organizations said they have an onboarding program, but only 33% have a formalized structure or committee, according to the American Medical Group Association. Yet, underinvesting in physician and [...]

In this week's Friday From the Field video, Tammy Tiller-Hewitt and Kim Grant come to you from the field where they led a group of over 100 providers, managers and leaders in a multi-day provider onboarding lean event. When we ask leaders if they have a provider onboarding program, we often hear “Yes of course.” When we ask how long and hear the standard “a couple days to a couple weeks” - We are here to tell you that is NOT an onboarding program – that is orientation! Confusing the two can literally be a multi-million dollar mistake. During our onsite events we take a deep dive into processes, bringing in people from multiple departments and disciplines to identify ways to lean or remove steps in the process, ultimately making it easier for the provider and their families to integrate into the community and organization, while ramping-up for long-term retention. Take a listen at the number of action items that were discovered during this event - spoiler alert – the number might shock you! Even if it was triple, the most important take away is [...]
We polled medical group executives and practice managers to find out how long their provider onboarding process lasts. The result is not surprising – but it is concerning because it’s too short!

Check out our video, webinar, case study and other resources to learn how to get onboarding right!
