The Only Way to Digitally Transform Your Healthcare Organization (and Stay under Budget)

In 2024, perhaps more than ever, fueled by unrelenting pressure to advance patient care, modern healthcare organizations must innovate. This translates to investments in electronic health records and customer relationship management platforms, along with technologies related to data, informatics, and interoperability. Because of inflation, rising interest rates, and tight budgets, the biggest hurdle to reaching any digital transformation goal is simple: cost. Fortunately, there’s a way to build the technology team you need, and save money in the process: Use the right blend of permanent and temporary staff on your healthcare IT project team.

Doing this enables you to assemble a flexible team. Instead of making a steep investment exclusively in full-time, permanent hires, potentially exceeding staffing budgets and having too much headcount during slow periods, you can invest wisely in your workforce, relying more on temporary talent for specific needs. Think of it on a project-by-project basis. For any significant implementation, for example, you will need to ramp up talent, but once you go live, you often scale down staff, or turn to new, specialized support staff for a certain period of time.

While it’s imperative to employ a flexible staff from a cost perspective, leveraging temporary talent also enables you to bring in expertise that your permanent team may lack—then share that expertise with your team before temporary workers’ assignments expire. So while you’re finding a way to cost-effectively reach short-term digital transformation goals, you’re also investing in your permanent employees’ by equipping them with new knowledge. It’s a win for all parties.

According to a recent survey conducted by QuestionPro and Medix Technology, nearly 40% of America’s healthcare technology leaders said that they plan to hire temporary workers over the next two years, mainly for the following reasons: to manage costs and stay within budget, and/or to have the ability to quickly scale staff up or down based on changing demand. And 52% of organizations plan to “explore outsourced staffing or consulting services” to accomplish it.
