Healthcare organizations are faced with changing times that suggest they must operate more so as a profit center than ever before. The war for talent is at its highest. At face value, this might seem to be a fairly standard approach to business, however, this is not a standard mindset of many in this industry. What we have to realize is that many of us healthcare administrators and leaders come from the ranks of healthcare practitioners. We did not get into this ‘business' to run P&L and deal with staffing issue, but that is exactly what we need to do now. The issue is more about having a capitalistic mindset to seize the opportunities (or challenges) in being a viable healthcare option.

Dr. Tonkin will address some specific steps that you can take to ‘future proof' your organization including revisiting the use of talent management within your organization.
