As healthcare organizations continue to add new physicians to their facilities and groups, a robust, well-designed onboarding process serves as the cornerstone of physician integration and retention. By enhancing their approach to onboarding, organizations can create a positive, lasting first impression, help physicians achieve full productivity and engagement more quickly, and position themselves to minimize the costs of turnover. In this webinar, participants will:
• Understand the differences between orientation and onboarding
• Acquire information that can be used to educate leaders to the positive effects a solid centralized onboarding program has on retention.
• Gain resources and strategies to create or enhance your onboarding/retention program.
