Navigating Healthcare Growth

Healthcare Staffing Software

If it seems as though the Healthcare industry has been growing for the past several years—decades even—you’re not imagining it. The industry has grown, and with events such as the recent COVID-19 pandemic, continues to grow.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) updates its Occupational Outlook Handbook twice each year, usually in March and September. The Handbook contains information about the nature of work, working conditions, training and education, and job outlook for hundreds of different occupations in the United States. The Healthcare profession is one of the occupations included within the BLS Handbook.

According to the latest update that the BLS made to the Handbook in September of 2022, “overall employment in Healthcare occupations is projected to grow by 13% from 2021 to 2031, much faster than the average for all occupations.” So as much as the Healthcare industry has grown to this point during the past 20 years, it’s poised to grow even more in the next 10. This is going to result in two million more jobs during the decade, an average of 20,000 new jobs each year.

The growing need for Healthcare staffing software

Put your best foot forward with informed communications between you and your candidates. Increase efficiency–filling positions more quickly and with the best fit.

And then there’s the matter of the unemployment rate in the Healthcare industry and profession. According to a study conducted by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) Network, Healthcare workers reported unemployment rates of 2.28% as compared to 3.82% among non-Healthcare workers just before the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, during the pandemic, unemployment rates among Healthcare workers rose to 3.18% while those for non-Healthcare workers rose to 6.13%, according to the study.

Of course, now that the pandemic has largely subsided and the National Unemployment Rate is once again at historically low levels, the unemployment rate within the Healthcare industry has also declined. So the unemployment rate in the Healthcare industry is lower than most other industries, and jobs within the occupation are projected to grow “much faster than the average for all occupations.”

Put these two trends together, and you can see that the need to hire Healthcare professionals will continue to increase. This means that the need for Healthcare staffing software will also continue to increase. Employers that want to be competitive in this tight market for talent will need to make sure that they have the best Healthcare staffing for their organization. Ideally, they’ll need one that helps them to hire the best job seekers and candidates possible in the least amount of time possible.


What is Healthcare staffing software?

Before we travel too far down the “rabbit hole,” what is healthcare staffing software or medical staffing software, as it is sometimes called?

First and foremost, Healthcare staffing software contains applicant tracking system (ATS) capabilities. This means that it can help hiring managers and Human Resources personnel enter job applicant information into its database and track those applicants throughout the recruitment process. As a result, Healthcare staffing agencies are able to streamline the process, thereby saving time, not to mention energy and effort.

This saving of time has a positive impact on the organization and its hiring efforts because it can devote more of it to those areas that are most likely to reap results. In other words, company officials can finish more of the activities that matter the most and complete them more quickly. This is the very definition of being more efficient and more effective.


The benefits of Medical Staffing software

Now that we know what healthcare staffing software or medical staffing software is, what are the specific benefits of using it?

  • Streamline the recruitment process and fill jobs more quickly—You’ve heard the phrase “speed kills” before, and this applies to applicant tracking systems, including your medical staffing software. The faster you can go, the faster you can hire top candidates!
  • Build and maintain relationships—With more time on your hands, you can focus on those things that matter the most, including relationships. This includes relationships with job seekers and candidates and also clients.
  • Create a good experience for applicants—Today’s job candidates want a positive experience during the recruitment process, regardless of whether or not they get the job.
  • Make good business decisions—With the right data and informative reports, you can use that information to steer your healthcare staffing firm in the direction you want it to go. You won’t have to “guess” what to do; instead, you’ll know what to do.
  • Increase efficiency, production, and profit—That’s the bottom line for Healthcare staffing agencies, is it not? (And for all businesses, when you think about it.)
