The holidays can be a tough and stressful time of year for healthcare administrators and clinicians. Patient volumes still demand coverage, while staff physicians often want to take time off to enjoy the holidays with their families. This creates additional challenges in scheduling adequate physician coverage, causing lots of headaches for administrators and clinicians too.
Below are a few tips compiled from the leadership team at Moonlighting Solutions and other healthcare leaders for surviving the hectic holiday season and ensuring your patients are covered across all service lines.
Don't wait until the holidays are upon you to begin planning your holiday coverage schedule. The time to start thinking about holiday coverage is in late Summer and early Autumn, ideally. By planning ahead, you can avoid many obstacles and often save money by scheduling well in advance of the holidays.
