Healthcare hiring research for improved quality, safety, and service outcomes

It's a brand new way for healthcare. The accelerated speed of change leaves little room for hiring missteps. Across the continuum of care, poor hiring decisions endanger not only the business, but also the patients.

This report, Better Hires, Better Outcomes, contains findings from DDI's healthcare assessments, detailing a "Triple Aim-plus" view of candidates—making it easier to identify those most likely to stay and grow with your organization.

Based on 6,086 healthcare test and assessment participants from U.S. healthcare systems across the continuum of care, it highlights the outcomes of these behaviors—the real-world, bottom-line results reported by participants’ managers.

With DDI's healthcare assessments, you can identify and select for five qualities of best performing talent:

About DDI's Healthcare Assessments

To help health systems quickly hire the best-performing talent, DDI offers a series of assessments specifically designed for healthcare workers and first-level managers. These assessments identify strengths and gaps related to healthcare’s Triple Aim focus on population health, patient care, and cost reduction. Specifically, the assessments can accurately predict how well individuals will perform on quality, service, and safety measures.

Our pre-employment assessments also predict employee engagement. They deliver a “Triple Aim-plus” view of your candidates—making it easier to identify those most likely to stay and grow with your organization.

Time-to-fill and ramp-up time are greatly reduced as a result of the assessment-generated feedback, which can also be used to accelerate onboarding. The results will ensure your candidates have what you need on day one, and diagnose development needs for both short- and long-term readiness.

About the Study

The study includes 6,086 assessment participants from U.S. healthcare systems across the continuum of care. These included all-level employees up through first-line leaders.

The competencies and attributes assessed were rolled up into five general categories. In each of the five categories, we compared the participants’ ratings/scores with their on-the-job performance. Approximately two-thirds of high scorers were shown to be high performers across all five categories.
