Sponsored by Jackson Physician Search, the Association for Advancing Physician and Provider Recruitment (AAPPR) examined the ways in which in-house teams use technology for applicant tracking, time management, communication, and general staff productivity.

The study revealed investments in technology to support physician recruitment lags behind other technology investments by hospitals and health systems. Additional findings from the Physician Recruitment Technology Utilization Study include:

  • 44% of organizations made a significant technology investment (defined as greater than 10k) over the last twelve months to assist with daily recruitment processes.
  • 17.5% reported their organization had never invested in technology of this kind.
  • 36.8% said they use an Excel spreadsheet to track and manage search and candidate activity.
