White Paper: Preparing For The New Normal

As difficult as it may be to visualize now, the current coronavirus pandemic will at some point subside, and the healthcare system will emerge into a dramatically altered environment. 

What challenges will be presented by a transformed healthcare landscape, and how can hospitals, medical groups, and other healthcare facilities address them?

Staff Care and AMN Healthcare’s Leadership Solutions division address these and related questions in a new white paper entitled, Preparing for the New Normal Post-Covid. 

The white paper outlines a variety of strategic and tactical considerations healthcare facilities will face as the pandemic plays out, including:


  • Aligning with what is likely to be a volatile and distressed workforce
  • Coping with backlogged procedures
  • Leveraging telehealth and other innovative delivery models widely deployed as a result of Covid-19
  • Maintaining recruiting momentum
  • Utilizing locum tenens providers to support staff alignment, retention, and rising patient demand

In addition to projecting what will be broad areas of concern post-COVID-19, the white paper offers specific steps healthcare facilities can take to promote provider retention and engagement now in anticipation of rising demand for services as the pandemic is contained. It also references ways in which healthcare facilities can maintain talent acquisition through online channels as well as through the use of locum tenens physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other providers.

Preparing for the New Normal Post-Covid offers a timely and practical playbook for navigating the emerging healthcare landscape likely to be of interest to facility administrators, human resource personnel, department directors, physician leaders, and others who track healthcare trends.
