The Significance of a Physician Needs Assessment
- June 1, 2021
We’re often asked, “Do we need a physician needs assessment?”
Some people think that since most of their doctors are employees now, they do not need to document anything for employment.
Others believe that they already know their needs, and another assessment would not tell them anything new.
Another perspective comes from those who view their needs assessment as simply an exercise in compliance.
These statements, perspectives, and questions reflect a somewhat short-sighted view of how organizations are approaching one of the critical elements of their success and sustainability — the vitality and development of their medical staff and the medical community.
