How Predictive Analytics Can Establish Sustainable Staffing Results

The pandemic was a challenging time for leadership teams to establish the appropriate strategies for optimizing their staffing mix. Choosing to adopt new strategies and technologies impacting all aspects of staffing and delivery of care systems wasn't something many health systems opted for during such an unusual time. The leadership team at Temple Health proved to be anything but typical. Having the right mix of staff they needed was difficult – but having the right processes, levels of transparency and logistics to know where and how to allocate the staff they had on a day-to-day basis was essential to establishing sustainable results.

Afternoon Keynote: Charting a Recovery Plan for America’s Physicians

The devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic – exacerbated by misinformation, anti-science aggression, criminalization of care and an ever-growing list of administrative burdens that obstruct delivery of quality patient care – are major factors in why nearly 2 in 3 physicians say they’ve experienced burnout symptoms. With many physicians now leaving medicine or considering a departure, experts anticipate a doctor shortage that could top 100,000 in the U.S. over the next decade. What will this mean for our healthcare system, for patients and for the physicians who remain? American Medical Association Immediate Past President Dr. Gerald Harmon will discuss the AMA’s Recovery Plan for America’s Physicians, why it’s necessary and how the AMA is working to strengthen our physician community to meet the incredible challenges of modern medicine.

SpeakerGerald Harmon, MD, Immediate Past President, American Medical Association; Retired Major General, U.S. Air Force
