Here is today’s rundown for the podcast:
First up, we revisit last week’s weekly video blog on an early trend in healthcare that I believe has real merit for personal career brand management and to help in finding your next better job. That tool has been around for a while but many candidates avoid it like the plague - video - specifically a video resume or professional overview.
Next, we will focus on the common phrase “Bigger is Not Better.” As the transformation of healthcare continues apace with changes that will alter our current business model, some health systems are eying mergers, apparently believing that bigger is better. Bigger is just bigger and less nimble.
Here is today’s big idea: Health systems and hospitals, facing cost structures that are not sustainable, are looking at outsourcing departments and operations that have never before been subject to scrutiny, according to Black Book’s Q2 outsourcing survey.
The survey’s authors said that by 2022, four short years from today, average hospital costs must be reduced by 24 percent in order to break even.
This could have an impact on your career so now is the time to pay attention to this important trend.
Today’s podcast focuses on two emerging trends that, when combined, will dramatically transform the healthcare industry — from our business model and how we take care of patients, to the impact these changes will have on our careers.
