Could Contingent Staffing Save the VA?

Society for Human Resource Management (06/17/14) Steve Bates

Staffing companies could play a role in repairing the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ troubled health care system, the largest integrated health care system in the country. The department does not have an effective way to determine whether clinics are staffed appropriately and does not know what staffing scenarios would help. Experts say the department should look to the staffing industry for help and explore contingent staffing as well as create a flexible workforce. Other ideas include bringing in physician assistants, outsourcing to relieve patient backlogs, streamlining the onboarding process, and reducing screening requirements for professionals with experience in the department.
