Keep an eye out for an article I'm writing for ACHE's (American College of Healthcare Executives) Frontiers of Health Service Management (Consider joining if you haven’t!). The summer issue features actions organizations are taking to address workforce challenges. In it I will highlight six RWHC Member hospitals who are doing everything they can to attract and keep great people. These organizational efforts matter, and the crisis is real. For the dire predictions, look here in the WCMEW report (Wisconsin Council on Medical Education and Workforce) for the thousands of workforce shortages we’ll be facing in the next decade without serious and immediate interventions.
Increasing pay is one strategy, and an important one. Money matters. But we will not buy our way out of this crisis because it is not the only thing that keeps people from jumping ship for greener pastures.
