Did you know that more than 70% of digital health leaders we've spoken to in the UK see sustainability as a key driver of business growth, innovation, and profitability? That's just one of the insights we've gleaned from our conversations with more than 100 digital health leaders. At Nolea Health, we've made it our business to understand the hiring needs of healthcare companies, and we've identified seven key priorities that are top of mind for these teams. Read on to learn what digital health leaders really care about.

→ Improving patient outcomes. Unsurprisingly, the top priority for digital healthcare teams across sizes and speciality is their patients. Operation managers are hyper-focused on developing solutions to enhance patient outcomes and satisfaction and allow for better access to quality care. Healthcare leaders use the Nolea Health jobs marketplace to reduce their time-to-hire clinician hiring process and deliver care at scale by focusing on their hiring, retention and skills development platform.

→ Recruiting and retaining. Recruiting and retaining clinicians is always top of mind in the understaffed healthcare landscape. It's becoming more common for healthcare companies to seek out professional development in specialist areas and seek hard-to-hire professionals such as CAHMS Psychiatrists and Psychologists. Employers can cut through the noise and discover healthcare professionals with unique attributes such as specialism, modality, approach treatment and availability to recruit and retain the best-in-class healthcare professionals.

There were significantly reduced time-to-hire rates, with one of our customers providing feedback as part of a Nolea Health Case Study. "Our team is pleased for not only Nolea Health allowing us to discover new healthcare professionals in a much more efficient way, but reserving time and reducing our hiring process by 67%."

→ Addressing health care disparities. Clinical teams are acutely aware of the disparities across different communities and are committed to tackling healthcare disparities and promoting health equity for all people in the country. There are several initiatives and strategies in place to address these issues:

  1. More mental healthcare professionals are often needed in certain areas, particularly in rural or low-income areas, which can make it difficult for individuals to access the care they need. This can lead to mental health conditions going untreated or undiagnosed, resulting in poorer health outcomes and reduced quality of life for affected individuals. By partnering with Nolea Health, healthcare teams can find remote-ready and location-based hires through our marketplace, making healthcare services more accessible to all communities, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds. This includes efforts to reduce waiting times and increase the availability of services in remote areas.

→ Integration with existing systems. New technology is only helpful if it seamlessly integrates with existing healthcare systems and workflows. As such, digital health teams are focused on developing solutions that intuitively integrate with electronic health records (EHRs) and other health care technologies, CRMs, Applicant tracking systems and patient booking management systems. At the end of the day, it's about saving healthcare organisations time and clicks, which has enabled project leads to consistently seek out new ways to quickly and easily hire and onboard their staff. To meet that need, healthcare companies can use our automated clinician matching and free applicant tracking system.

→ Skills visibility in high-res. Bridge present (and future) skills gaps - The most dangerous knowledge gaps aren't the ones you know about; they're the ones building under the surface. You're not alone if you need more clarification about current skill gaps. 2 in 5 HR leaders need to know what competencies they have in their workforce beyond what's stated on their CV when they join the organisation. 

A complete picture of your organisation's capabilities doesn't just help reduce recruiting costs and empowers healthcare professionals to reach their full potential. Nolea Health equips you with unparalleled visibility so you can leverage every skill your talent has today and get strategic about what capabilities to prioritise next. Our Workforce Insights provide an in-depth analysis of the latest skills, job, and talent trends so you can identify where you're likely to need to catch up. By surfacing relevant market benchmarks, Nolea Health helps you visualise how your workforce stacks up against competitors and identify the differentiators that will set your organisation apart.

→ Business sustainability. More healthcare organisations have prioritised investing more in their healthcare hiring and retention strategies to make this happen. Digital health teams are working to build sustainable business models that can support their growth over the long term. They are seeking ways to generate revenue, attract investment, and build partnerships that can help them scale their solutions.

According to a report by the NHS Confederation, sustainable business models are critical for ensuring the long-term viability of healthcare organisations. The report notes that healthcare organisations prioritising sustainability are more likely to achieve their strategic objectives and deliver high-quality care over the long term.

A survey by PwC found that 70% of healthcare CEOs in the UK see sustainability as a critical driver of business growth, innovation, and profitability. The survey also found that healthcare organisations that prioritise sustainability are more likely to attract investment, retain customers, and maintain a competitive edge in the market.

These statistics demonstrate that sustainability is a critical factor for the success of healthcare organisations. By prioritising sustainability, healthcare companies can achieve their strategic objectives, deliver high-quality care, attract investment, and maintain a competitive edge in the market. This underscores the importance of developing sustainable business models, investing in innovation and growth, and building partnerships that can support long-term success.
