Hospitals struggle to find good revenue cycle candidates as demand rises
Healthcare Finance
With revenue cycle staff in big demand, healthcare providers are scrambling to find candidates with this specialized type of experience before initiatives like ICD-10 and value-based payments put too much pressure on cash flow. "Absolutely there is a shortage," said Ann Trotter, a healthcare finance recruiter with Kaye/Bassman International Corp. "It doesn't look like ICD-10 will be delayed, so it is putting hospitals in hyperdrive because they know their dollars are going to plummet."

MedPage Today
A survey from Medical Group Management Association provides further evidence that primary care physician compensation is rising at a faster rate than that of specialists. However, the survey also shows that specialists earn nearly twice as much. The findings, gleaned from comparative data from nearly 70,000 providers, found that primary care physicians reported a median compensation of $241,273 in 2014, a 3.56 percent increase since 2013. Median compensation for specialists rose to $411,852, a 2.39 percent increase since last year.

BusinessBecause
Johnson & Johnson's recruitment of MBAs and undergraduates surged by 20 percent last year, underscoring a hiring drive by the world's biggest healthcare groups as the industry grapples with a rapidly aging global population and new digital technologies.

More physicians leaving independent practices
Healthcare Dive
The number of physicians in independent practice has been dwindling for the past several years due to the many regulatory challenges set into action via the Affordable Care Act. In addition, ICD-10 implementation will happen in October and with the AMA estimating costs for small practices running up to $226,000, it's not surprising that more physicians are working in hospitals or medical groups.

Physicians Practice
Before you begin training staff to use a new EHR or practice management system, it's a good idea to assess their overall comfort level and experience with using technology. Staff members with low computer literacy should receive basic skills training so they can take full advantage of vendor training during implementation. Without that foundation, they may feel lost and never achieve true proficiency with the new system, experts say. Here is a basic skills assessment survey recommended by CMS.

By Pamela Wasley
Everybody knows a company's greatest asset is its people. But what happens when employers are predisposed to hiring a certain type of person for their business? Based on personal life experiences, you may inherently prefer to hire a man for this job, a woman for that one — and you may not even realize it's bias that's keeping you from exploring the best candidates for your open role.
