Healthcare often struggles with outdated hiring software, and long-term care is no exception. It’s not that long-term care workers are afraid of change. It’s just that, in an industry with high stakes and constant demand, it might feel safer to stick with what you know. But what if the thing you know is all about slow hiring, widespread vacancies, and businesses that struggle to stay afloat? If that sounds like your reality, it’s probably time to update your long-term care software.

The Race to Staff Up in Long-Term Care

Even saying that staffing shortages are widespread in long-term care is a serious understatement. In 2021, 99% of skilled nursing facilities experienced shortages, and 78% of these facilities faced the real possibility that shortages would force them to close.

By 2030, healthcare is expected to add 2.6 million new roles. But as it stands, a massive number of healthcare workers are reaching retirement age, and many more are leaving the industry voluntarily. So where are those 2.6 million workers supposed to come from?

Right now, healthcare hiring is in a race to the finish. It takes healthcare employers longer to hire than almost any other industry. But taking weeks or months to hire just doesn’t work when you’re competing for one small pool of qualified candidates.
