Market Dynamics:


Growing aging population

The need for healthcare services is increasing as the population ages because of chronic diseases and age-related ailments. The need for doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals to offer necessary treatment and assistance increases as a result. The need for healthcare staffing services rises as a result of healthcare businesses having to increase their workforce to fulfill these needs. The need to hire more employees is exacerbated by the aging population, which also raises the turnover rate among healthcare workers as they get closer to retirement. Because of the ongoing demand for trained healthcare workers to fulfill the aging population’s increasing healthcare needs, these factors jointly create a driver for the U.S. healthcare staffing market.

  • According to the Population Reference Bureau, by 2050, the population of people aged 65 years and above will grow to 82 million in the U.S., which is around a 47% increase compared to 2022, in which there were 58 million aged people.


High attrition rates in healthcare

Significant personnel attrition rates are present in the healthcare industry, mostly as a result of frequent turnover, burnout, and retirement. The nursing field has been particularly hard hit, with many nurses leaving due to rising workloads, emotional fatigue, and stress at work. Physicians and allied healthcare professionals are among the other healthcare jobs that are impacted by high turnover rates and manpower shortages.

  • According to a recent AMN Healthcare Services Inc. study of over 18,000 nurses, 30% of participants are considering quitting their jobs, a 7% rise from 2021, when the pandemic-related wave of resignations began. According to the report, only 36% of nurses want to stay in the field but may change jobs.


Shortage of healthcare professionals           

Nurses, doctors, and other allied health workers are among the skilled healthcare professionals in short supply due to the growing demand for healthcare services. Factors including job changes, retirements, and disparities in the regional distribution of healthcare professionals are the main causes of this shortfall. Healthcare businesses are increasingly turning to healthcare staffing services to fill this staffing gap and guarantee acceptable levels of care. These organizations focus on finding and putting skilled workers in either temporary or permanent roles, which helps to bridge the gap and preserve high standards for patient care.
