Why Healthcare Leaders Need a Workforce Optimization Strategy Now

As hospitals and health system front-line workers deal head-on with the COVID-19 pandemic, administrators are forced to consider staffing levels from a new perspective. Hospital leaders were already under pressure to contain labor costs while optimizing staffing for the provider and patient well-being. This work will become even more critical when the spread of the virus slows. While these challenges are significant, leaders are not without resources. Telehealth solutions and workforce optimization technology can help providers meet the demand of the current moment and thrive in the future. In this episode of Becker's podcast series, we speak with Andrea Nelson, COO of VISTA Staffing Solutions, about workforce optimization, telehealth solutions, and the many benefits they can yield for health systems.
