Market key trends:
Growing demand for healthcare staffing:
The demand for healthcare staffing is growing in the US as there is a shortage of physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals in the country. This is mainly due to aging of existing healthcare workforce and increasing healthcare needs of growing elderly population. The staffing agencies help healthcare facilities meet this increasing demand for healthcare staff through temporary or permanent placement of required resources. This growing demand is expected to remain a key trend in the US healthcare staffing market during the forecast period.
Strength: The U.S. healthcare staffing market offers flexible working schedules and opportunities for career advancement. This attracts healthcare professionals to work as locums or travel nurses.
Weakness: There is a shortage of healthcare professionals in the U.S. This hinders the ability of staffing companies to meet the increasing demand. Staffing agencies also face regulatory hurdles related to licensing and credentialing of locum tenens and travel nurses across state lines.
Opportunity: The aging U.S. population and growing prevalence of chronic diseases are increasing the demand for healthcare services. This drives the need for additional locum tenens and travel nurses to supplement the in-house clinical staff of hospitals and healthcare facilities.
Threats: Consolidation among hospitals reduces the number of facilities that rely on external locum tenens and travel nursing staff. Budget cuts by hospitals can also decrease their spending on contracted locum tenens and travel nurses.
