Top skills physicians need for the future in value-based care medicine
Becker's Hospital Review
Physicians expect about 50 percent of their total compensation in the next 10 years to come from value-based payment models, according to the "2014 Survey of U.S. Physicians" from Deloitte. The survey, which tapped more than 560 physicians, found that most physicians (78 percent) still prefer traditional payment models to value-based payment models. Despite the reluctance for value-based payment models, the physicians surveyed identified skills that are critical to future success in medicine.

Evaluating telemedicine technology: A physician's perspective
Telemedicine (also referred to as mHealth; the "m" for mobile) is — without question — an integral component of the future of healthcare delivery. Moreover, technologists and investors in mHealth have the potential to reap significant fortunes for devices and care processes that are highly effective and embraced by both physicians and patients. The effectiveness of the technology is predicated on more than just its inherent sophistication.

Could nap rooms help hospital shift workers?
By Joan Spitrey
Imagine you have been up all night, caring for a newborn. You are sleepy, yet need to remain alert. At 6 a.m., you sit down to feed and burp the precious new life. You begin to feel drowsy as you take in the aroma of the newborn. Next thing you know, the infant has fallen to the ground out of your grasp. Sound ridiculous? Unfortunately, this is not a piece of fiction, but a sad event that happened recently to a 30-year veteran nurse in Pennsylvania during a long overnight shift.

Why internists are No. 1 in physician burnout
Much has appeared online of late about physician burnout, including a recent Medscape survey, but internist Gregory A. Hood's eloquent essay explored the subject with uncommon sensitivity, depth, and wisdom that resonated with many doctors. "Burnout is defined as loss of enthusiasm for work, feelings of cynicism, and a low sense of personal accomplishment," Dr Hood observed. "Medscape's study showed that 50% of physicians in internal medicine say they are 'burned out.' This rate, which is compatible with other similar surveys, exceeds the rate found with other US workers. Perhaps it is that physicians have selected their profession and view their work as 'more than a job.'"

Is hospital employment of physicians peaking or pausing?
One year's worth of data does not establish a trend. However, a new report from the physician recruitment firm Merritt Hawkins suggests a drop-off in hospitals hiring physicians. Of the 3120 searches for physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants the firm handled between April 2014 and March 2015, 51 percent were on behalf of hospital and hospital-owned medical groups, a big drop from 64 percent for the previous two years. It was the first decline since 2003-2004, when hospitals accounted for 11 percent of the company's searches, according to the report, released on July 15.

Millennials want this one thing from employers
More than salary, position, culture or any other factor, there is one thing that millennials want from employers: a sense of purpose. Levo co-founder and CEO Caroline Ghosn asked an audience at the Fortune Brainstorm Tech conference not to roll their eyes in skepticism when she explained that Levo's surveys and focus groups indicate that 84 percent of 18- to 34-year-olds—defined as millennials, or Gen Y, rank "purpose" supreme in evaluating whether they are in the right job and want to stay there.

Most healthcare professionals would leave jobs for better pay
Forty-five percent of healthcare workers have not received a pay raise in the last year, and nearly 3 in 4 said that they would leave their current employer for a higher paying position elsewhere, according to a new survey by Health eCareers. And they are finding career opportunities elsewhere. An aging population and expanded coverage for all Americans under the Affordable Care Act have combined to create a surge in demand for health workers.

Being generous with employee time off pays off
By Betsy Harper
There is simply nothing a manager can give to an employee that is a cheaper contributor to ROI than having a liberal time-off policy. When you give a sales quota to your team, for example, that quota has to be met or exceeded, regardless of how much vacation time the salesperson takes. They know this — they "get it." You have the power to ensure your employees don't burn out and remain as excited about their jobs and your company as they were on their first day at work.
