Written by Angie Stewart | March 01, 2019 | Print  |

Hospitals converting a hospital outpatient department to an ASC or forming a joint-venture ASC should adopt a human resources model that matches an ASC's speed, efficiency and specialization, according to MedHQ, an HR company specializing in the ASC market.

Three takeaways:

1. An ASC's benefits should be perceived as equal to or better than a hospital's benefits to overcome shortages for nurses and other staff.

2. Benefit programs, hiring process and onboarding tools should be established before recruiting team members.

3. Individuals who enjoy having multiple responsibilities and appreciate cross-training opportunities will thrive in an ambulatory setting. Those who prefer consistency may be happier in a hospital setting.
