A big increase in the percentage of healthcare facilities seeking locum tenens physicians reflects both the physician shortage in the United States and the growing turnover among employed doctors, according to a Staff Care report based on its 2019 survey of healthcare facility managers. Facilities will increasingly be turning to a locum tenens workforce for support on many levels, from surgical procedures to ER staffing needs. Demand for pulmonologists, cardiologists, oncologists, psychiatrists, and higher acuity specialties is presently increasing. It is projected that the demand for locum tenens physicians specializing in these areas of medicine will continue to rise. As hospitals continue to support patients’ needs, locum tenens physicians will be needed to supplement staffing in order to reduce physician burnout while maintaining large patient caseloads. With facilities increasingly experiencing surges of patients with a variety of medical conditions, an ever-growing need for locum tenens providers to fill in staffing gaps has developed with the goal of ensuring that patient care goes uncompromised. To address significant patient volume levels, healthcare facilities of all types have invested in locum tenens physicians and advanced practice providers to support full-time staff in treating patients, both in person and through telehealth means. Moreover, locum tenens employment enables facilities to cut back on excessive spending associated with hiring, onboarding, and training new providers. With the assistance of a locum tenens staffing firm like MPLT Healthcare, facilities can quickly find qualified locum tenens candidates on an as-needed basis. With the healthcare field evolving at a rapid pace, locum tenens providers continue to play an instrumental role in combatting staffing shortages and maintaining patient levels.
