CareerPlug, an HCAOA Associate Member, analyzed hiring data to shed light on hiring metrics and trends for small businesses across various industries. Their team analyzed hiring activity in 2020 from more than 12,000 companies — covering more than 10 million applications. On Pages 20-21 you will see highlighted key hiring metrics and trends for businesses in the healthcare industry. One of the key findings that stood out for healthcare was that 36% of hires came from custom sources, which can include industry-specific job boards (like HCAOA’s “find a provider” site or myCNAjobs), local job boards, Craigslist, and more. On the other hand, major job boards (like Indeed and ZipRecruiter) bring in 77% of applicants, but convert them to hires at a rate of only 1%.

HCAOA has another free resource for our members! Check out the upcoming Agency Momentum webinar on April 21, “Learning How to Create Value Through Predictive Analytics.” Did you know that research shows collaboration between clinical and personal care providers can unlock lower-cost, higher-value care, especially for patients with chronic conditions? Data is the bridge that delivers vital population- and patient-level insights to clinicians at the point of care, so they can make informed, individualized clinical care decisions to provide better care and improve outcomes.
Enrollment in private Medicare Advantage health plans is steadily increasing and benefit packages are evolving. For the third year, plans are allowed to offer non-medical supplemental benefits including in-home support services and adult day care. Where are these benefits being offered across the country and what do these benefits mean today for your organization and clients? Is there a longer-term opportunity to consider?
A question from members in several states is “to seek licensure or not to seek licensure.” Join HCAOA for a discussion about the benefits of having a state license for home care and hear from home care agencies in three states that are operating under licensure regulations. They will talk about the benefits of having a license, the not-so-great requirements, as well as the changes they would make if they had to do it all over again.
Webinar Date/Time: March 25 at 11:00am ET.
