Flow Healthcare - Healthcare Onboarding
Onboarding new teammates is often a difficult task, regardless of the industry. It can be the most stressful in medical environments of all sizes, because they typically need qualified and reliable staff sooner rather than later. This can be an intimidating challenge when new hires must undergo rigorous background checks and in-depth training before starting a shift.
At Flow Healthcare, we appreciate that acquiring new staff is a delicate balance between thoroughness and moving as quickly as possible. We make this process easier for all parties by streamlining and improving the onboarding process to get the assistance you need without losing momentum.

Why Teams Need Healthcare Onboarding Services
The potential pitfalls of onboarding appear during and after acquiring a new hire. Healthcare teams must optimize every part of the process to avoid turnover, costing companies 100% to 300% of the lost employee’s salary. Here are some of the most common onboarding problems:
The hidden costs of onboarding can be a serious drain on any practice’s budget, but especially on smaller groups. Reports from the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) revealed that practices typically spend over $7,000 on a single provider application. Almost $100,000 is lost in staff wages annually through the administrative weight of onboarding new hires.
Lack of Staff or Overwhelmed Hiring Personnel
Smaller operations may lack the resources to create a dedicated onboarding management position, placing extra stress on the existing team. Larger operations will have a greater need for new team members, increasing recruitment pressures. A lack of automation in either scenario puts extra weight on employees who are already running at maximum.
Protracted Onboarding Procedures
There’s no getting around the necessary time and diligence of onboarding to avoid financial and legal liability. Submitting and verifying Provider work and educational history, as well as medical background, can take months for both the Provider and admin. Errors at this stage can cause further problems with patient billing and scheduling.
Poor Internal and External Communication
Onboarding is a communication-intensive process at every stage, encompassing interdepartmental contact, dealing with checking agencies and references, and keeping new hires informed and updated about their application process and their eventual role when accepted. Weak communication at any of these points can compromise role clarity and further complicate the onboarding process.
