NAPR 2015 Physician Practice Search Guide now available
The Board of Directors of the National Association of Physician Recruiters has released the 2015 Physician Practice Search Guide, 2nd Edition, available for immediate distribution in paperback and as an e-book. This is the first time the Guide has targeted the tablet/e-reader market and created an e-book to send directly to Kindle/Kindle app devices. The Guide boasts 126 pages spanning eight chapters that cover: Devising Your Practice Search Strategy; Drafting a Curriculum Vitae; Interview Preparation and Etiquette; Evaluating a Practice and Community; Choosing an Educational Program for Your Child; Contracts 101; Buying and Selling a Practice; and Immigration: Everything You Need to Know. "The opportunity to improve upon what the Association had previously published afforded us the chance to expand on an already relevant publication. More than two years in the making, this Guide answers so many pertinent questions physicians have and lead them to resources that they might not even have considered or been aware of," stated NAPR President Craig Fowler, Pinnacle Health Group. "NAPR is the premier organization for physician recruiters in the nation and it is our goal to serve as the primary resource for physicians seeking to find their perfect position, relocate, or even buy and sell a practice; whatever the situation."

Resident and fellowship programs nationally continue to recognize the Guide as a resource for their graduating residents and fellows as they seek new positions. The Guide has also received interest from Directors of Recruitment at hospital systems, clinics and practices nationally who utilize chapters of the Guide written by industry experts to develop quality recruitment programs, enhance site interviews, offer new possibilities in recruiting visa candidates, inspire ideas for retention programs and provide content in training new recruiters. The NAPR has received feedback that some practices have offered the Guide to incumbent lead physicians as a physical manual to serve as an update on current recruitment trends and as a refresher for recruiting new associates.

Which roles will stand out in new army of healthcare workers?
MedCity News
Of the nearly three million new jobs added in 2014, about 10 percent of them came from the healthcare sector. That's a pretty big number and actually is a bit worrisome when one thinks about how closely our economic health as a nation is tied to growing healthcare labor costs. If we are too successful in our national quest to cut healthcare costs, we may find ourselves killing new job growth and tanking the economy.

Healthcare fraud and blowing the whistle
By Keith Carlson
On June 18, The Dallas Morning News reported in an article that 243 healthcare workers from around the nation were indicted on federal charges of Medicare fraud by The Medicare Fraud Strike Force, the largest such bust in history. Healthcare fraud — especially Medicare and insurance fraud — is more common than we think. Healthcare professionals who find themselves potentially entangled in a fraudulent situation should immediately report the suspected abuse to the appropriate authorities.

5 healthcare jobs transformed by reform
HealthLeaders Media
The focus in hospitals on outcomes and patient satisfaction and on the use of electronic health records systems is changing clinical duties and job descriptions. If your HR department is like most, it is recruiting more nurses with advanced degrees, looking to hire a team of care coordinators and possibly seeking out tech-savvy docs. These hiring trends are not occurring in a vacuum. Healthcare reform is transforming how all levels of hospital workers — from physicians and nurses, to social workers, IT professionals, and senior leaders — do their jobs.

OIG fraud alert targets physician compensation agreements
Fierce Health Payer
A new fraud alert released by the Office of the Inspector General highlights the agency's renewed interest in physician compensation arrangements that could violate anti-kickback regulations if payments do not reflect fair market value. The OIG specifically cites issues tied to medical directorships that pay for services a physician did not actually provide. In addition to payments that go above fair market value, compensation arrangements that account for the volume or value of referrals could be considered anti-kickback violations.

While talent platforms are helping hiring managers now, their potential benefits could reach much further.

The fundamental fallacy of modern recruiting
Tech Crunch
Lately, there has been growing concern among policymakers and journalists about the increasing time gap between the posting of a job listing and the actual hiring of a worker. The most popular explanation for this trend among economists is that labor quality is dwindling – that there is a "skills mismatch" between job seekers and employers. Another theory argues that there are too many applicants per position, complicating the process of finding the right employee. These theories and others miss a critical point: built into these analyses is the assumption that recruiters and human resources professionals actually know what they are looking for when hiring.

Employee or contractor? Uber ruling could affect other companies
U.S. News & World Report
Uber is facing roadblocks to its rapid growth from a California ruling that threatens to drive up payments to its drivers, which could increase costs for users of its car service app. A recent decision from the California Labor Commissioner's Office ruled that a former Uber driver was an employee of the company, not an independent contractor as the firm has labeled its chauffeurs. The decision is nonbinding, but Uber has now appealed it to the California court system. This has begun a process that has a good chance of ending in a legal precedent that could affect all Uber drivers in California and the broader sharing economy, says David Rosenfeld, a union counsel at the law firm of Weinberg, Roger and Rosenfeld.
