Details & Time Frame
The State of the Long-Term Healthcare Industry - A WFM Perspective
Caring for and treating people with long-term healthcare (LTHC) conditions are expected to become one of the dominant healthcare challenges of the 21st century. In fact, demographers are estimating that between now and 2015, the population aged at 85 and older, most likely requiring LTHC, will increase by 40%. In the context of an aging society, as the population ages and the life expectancy increases, so does the demand for professional and skilled healthcare workers and with it the employment costs.

Therefore, the importance of LTHC is increasing as a result of growing demand from aging baby boomers and the shrinkage of the traditional workforce.

Within this session, we will highlight the importance of managing the LTHC workforce as efficiently as possible, in order to boost employee productivity and improve patient care, while controlling labour costs. The ease of use and automation of these solutions allow for more time and attention to be spent on patients, and less time on administrative functions. For example, workforce management solutions are able to collect employee availability data, including requests for absence and staffing requirements. As the supply of the workforce stands far below the demand, it is essential to maintain high job satisfaction and low turn over rates.

The goal of this session is to outline how and why LTHC providers need to continue to focus on effective cost and labour control in order to operate profitably and efficiently into the future.

The future of LTHC will be immeasurably worse without fully customizable workforce management solutions that will significantly impact business processes, and improve operational efficiencies. In order to treat patients with the care they deserve, workforce management solutions are crucial to healthcare operations.
