In 2018, the healthcare worker turnover rate reached a decade-long peak at 19.1 percent according to Nursing Solutions, Inc’s (NSI) 2019 National Health Care Retention & RN Staffing Report.
The study claims that healthcare organizations (HCOs) are hoping this trend will have reversed by the end of 2019, but that is yet to be seen.
According to the NSI study, when healthcare organizations lose staff, on average, it can cost those facilities $60,000 per employee in recruitment and operational expenses. The impact turnover has on an organization’s bottom line can vary depending on skill level, but ancillary costs like training new employees can still weigh heavy.
For example, training a new physician or business manager usually necessitates an introduction to new clinical or financial tools. If additional training needs catch a facility unprepared, it can claim vital resources that may have been needed elsewhere. Hospitals using MEDHOST’s suite of healthcare solutions can get ahead of turnover training costs by investing in Empower Training Packages for their staff.

An investment in MEDHOST training puts the super in “Super User” by empowering essential staff with the skills they need to respond to unexpected turnover with greater agility.
