Impact Analysis – Why? Medical Staff Rules. Section 3. 2. 2 Identify The Clinical Department/ Facility Leaders establish a need to fill a current or upcoming vacancy in a clinic, or community of AHS site, or to expand a current program to meet identified needs. 3 -5 year workforce plan is taken into consideration. Assess Accountable leader(s) fill out the Impact Analysis form that identifies the required resources, operational impact and the impact on other Zone Clinical Departments. Must include all budget requirements and funding sources. Approve The IA should be reviewed by both Medical Staff and Operational Leaders. Medical Affairs obtains the required signatures. Signatures indicate an acknowledgement, due diligence and awareness of intent to recruit. Recruit If approved, the position is entered into the Central Zone Vacancy Summary for the Physician Resource Planner to initiate job posting and formally begin recruitment. Candidates are carefully vetted to ensure “a good fit”, not “a fill”. Retain What’s “A Good Fit”? • Quality of care • Collegiality • Sense of Belonging • Physician Morale • Staff & patient satisfaction • Reduced costs LONG TERM RETENTION The impact analysis is NOT a rubber stamp, but rather an enhancement to bring about success

The Impact Analysis Trip • The Central Zone undertook the Impact Analysis Quality Improvement in 2012 • The goal was to improve on many levels: – quality of recruitment – engagement of stakeholders – overall retention • Where do we start, well first we had to understand where we were.
Defining the Opportunity • Original IA- a single page form that identified a need for a physician and required the ZMD signature • The opportunity existed to improve an administrative function into something that provided value add at many levels • • • What kind of physician – rurally trained, urban trained, specialist, etc What skills did we need- obstetrics, anesthesia, other What other resources were required to support the recruitment What services would the recruitment enhance or support Workforce Planning- looking to the future
Consultation • Impact Analysis processes from other healthcare systems were reviewed • Physician Leaders and operational leaders were consulted • A new form and process emerged • We were ready to start the new Journey Introduce Incorporate Implement

Evidence of Change • Buy in by stakeholders • IA is used throughout the recruitment cycle and in other Medical Affairs functions: v Appointment and Privileging v Review of ongoing service i. e. sponsorship v Supports ongoing workforce planning
Back to square one? -Physician retention begins at the Impact Analysis level as part of strategic planning: “where are we going and how we will get there? ” -Impact Analysis should not be a bureaucratic necessity, but rather a tool that aids in finding the type of provider who will “FIT”, rather than “FILL” the position.
