Workforce productivity gap

Shortages of nurses and radiographers are a growing global problem: There are almost 44,000 nursing vacancies across the NHS1 and vacancy rates for radiographers in the U.S. doubled in two years only2. At the same time, aging populations and a growing burden of chronic diseases are dramatically increasing the demand for healthcare3. The result is a looming gap between the growing demand and the lack of healthcare staff.

The most effective strategy to meet this challenge is to increase workforce productivity.

Find out how eliminating waste and reducing non-value-adding activities in conjunction with enabling individual growth will ultimately increase workforce productivity.


Prof. Michael Forsting, University Hospital Essen, explains workforce-related challenges in radiology and how to address them.
