Nearly every industry in the 21st century is evolving rapidly, changing to adapt to a new way in which the world operates. From remote work to virtual appointments, workers and consumers across the country have quickly adjusted to a landscape in which business is conducted not in physical, brick-and-mortar environments but rather in digital landscapes. While just a decade ago virtual healthcare was only a trickle, today more than a third of individuals over the age of 18 have accessed telehealth services within the last year. Just as dramatic as usage is the value of telehealth services. In 2019, the telehealth industry was valued at just under $50 million. That number is expected to nearly quadruple in 2023.
With all trends pointing toward an exponential rise in virtual healthcare, the value of a telehealth recruiter for your practice cannot be overstated, which is why we’ve outlined three reasons a telehealth recruiter is essential to the growth and success of your practice.
- Identifying Unique Skill Sets
An experienced telehealth recruiter brings far more value than a generic recruitment service that typically falls under the category of “master of none.” The experienced telemedicine recruiter understands your practice and the profession, allowing them to identify individuals with the experience to succeed specifically within the world of telehealth.
- Matching Talent to Practice
Finding the right medical professionals for telehealth is only part of the battle. A true telehealth recruiter is also able to understand your practice in a way that allows them to identify talent that is not only experienced, but matches the intangible qualities you are looking for in a candidate that allow for a successful, long-term fit.
- Understanding the Market
While finding and placing the right candidates is the primary purpose of a telehealth recruiter, their value does not end there. By being deeply entrenched in the field, they are able to help you navigate and better understand the market, helping you anticipate potential opportunities to grow your business.
With the rich opportunity for growth within the telehealth sector, it is vital to set yourself up for the best chance of short- and long-term success by partnering with an experienced telehealth recruiter.
