The Affordable Care Act: Trends and Implications in the Allied Health Workforce
RSP Kicks off 2014 Program Series at its February 20th Meeting
Data and preventative care will drive the healthcare workforce demands of the future, a prominent healthcare consultant told members of the Competitive Workforce Alliance Allied Health Regional Skills Partnership at the organization’s first meeting of 2014. “The shift from a focus on episodic care (no on-going relationship between patient and doctor) to a focus on preventative care (relationship-based) is one of three critical changes I see coming,” Phil Geissinger of PG Consulting told the group.
