2021 Healthcare Trends Survey Report

March 06, 2021

The major disruptions from the COVID-19 crisis are reflected throughout the findings of the just-completed Survey Report from AMN Leadership Solutions. The comprehensive survey addressed current and longstanding industry concerns. The responses are distilled here into 11 trends for 2021. Leaders’ outlooks are positive but guarded, with concern about regulation such as telehealth reimbursement. Dominant strategies will be directed toward restoring pre-pandemic revenue and supporting the workforce. While employee engagement improved in 2020, serious clinician burnout concerns remain. Leaders will also face a challenging recruitment and staffing environment.

  • Varying remote workforce return-to-work strategies will be deployed.
  • Meaningful retention risks exist despite the prevailing labor market.
