Despite advances in medical technology and the evolution of new delivery models, healthcare is still about people. Physicians, nurses and allied healthcare professionals continue to serve on the front lines of healthcare and are the indispensable providers of patient care. The supply and staffing of clinical healthcare professionals, therefore is a priority for both individual healthcare facilities and for the healthcare system as a whole.
