Flex UpA hospital “flexes” its staff up and down all the time to meet the clinical needs of the census. Do you make similar staffing adjustments at reappointment time, or when a large volume of newly employed practitioners is onboarded?

Interim medical staff professionals (MSPs) — individuals and teams — can help you optimize workloads, reduce application turnaround times, control costs, ensure quality and consistency, and increase provider satisfaction by flexing up and down to meet demand. Key reasons hospitals and systems flex up include:

    1. New credentialing software system implementation;
    2. Backlogs of initial applications or reapplications for credentials/privileges;
    3. Merger or acquisition of another healthcare facility resulting in increase of credentialing/privileging requests;

Interim medical staff professionals (MSPs) — individuals and teams — can help you optimize workloads, reduce application turnaround times, control costs, ensure quality and consistency, and increase provider satisfaction by flexing up and down to meet demand.

  1. Increased volume of locum tenens or employed physicians requesting credentials/privileges;
  2. Processing in new residents in an academic medical center;
  3. Clustered reappointments; and
  4. Getting to paperless without diverting attention from mission critical day-to-day activities.

Interim staff can also help you cover your bases during short-term staffing gaps as permanent employees are recruited and hired, as well as during medical leaves of absence. With the right interim staffing partner, you should have access to ready-to-roll individuals and teams who can step seamlessly into a range of roles and responsibilities as needed.
