Health eCareers: Renewed Focus on Physician Recruiters

One of the nation's premium healthcare career sites, Health eCareers, has recalibrated its efforts toward serving the categories of physicians, physician assistants (PAs), nurse practitioners (NPs) and certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs). 

Since its acquisition by j2 Global, a $1 billion company, and its subsidiary Everyday Health Professional, which is the nation's leading network of sites for the healthcare professional, Health eCareers has begun to direct its efforts toward maximizing the potential of those four categories.

"Now that our sole focus is on recruiting physicians and advanced practice providers, we’re in a better position than ever before to serve our customers," says Health eCareers Managing Director Greg Chang.

To support this initiative, Health eCareers maintains exclusive, highly productive and mutually beneficial partnerships with national healthcare associations such as the  American College of Emergency Physicians, American College of Cardiology and American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Alongside regional and state healthcare chapters and medical publishers, these partnerships effectively reach highly qualified providers audiences.

Unparalleled Outreach

"This sharpened approach allows our team to focus on service delivery and engagement with our valued clients," says Jean Landsverk, M.B.A., Health eCareers' new vice president of sales. She brings 20 years of experience in executive roles in healthcare, technology and payment-processing organizations to her position.

"Our outreach is everywhere the best candidates are," says Paul Kottenstette, the site's manager of sales and account management. Health eCareers continues to offer strategic industry insights via the highest-quality editorial content, its salary calculator, healthcare recruiting trends report, and visibility and participation at the nation's top career fairs.

"We currently have more than 6,500 employers in our network who know they can reach most of America's practicing providers with us," he says. "They know there's no need to 'go hunting' by specialty. It all adds up to hiring better candidates more quickly and with less hassle." 

The over-arching objective is to be the go-to resource for not only the site's client base and partners, but also for individual candidates who want to go to one place to access multiple levels of expertise as they pursue their next career move, he says.

Strong Focus on Physician Recruiters

The Health eCareers network is uniquely positioned to support physician recruiters who will be its sole emphasis going forward. "This narrower scope allows us to go deeper and deliver much better results for our customers in the form of highly qualified job-seekers," Chang says.

He also cited Health eCareers' 25 years' experience in the healthcare careers marketplace. "We keep our clients' needs top of mind and can more strategically provide targeted solutions for them." 

Chang speaks from experience as a former hospital administrator at Duke University. "I've recruited physicians myself and I understand the pain point of not being able to find the right candidates — and what that ultimately means for a hospital. When we serve our customers better, it means they hire faster. That also means the communities they serve get better access to healthcare and that community members can be seen faster by the right provider."

Customers can now enjoy the significant advantages of Health eCareers' affiliation with its owner j2 Global and Everyday Health Professional.

"We're able to reach up to 90 percent of all physicians in America through our network of sites, including the CE and CE-accredited medical news service MedPage Today and KevinMD, social media's leading physician voice," Chang says. "Our team is looking forward to the possibilities of offering this wider range of unique benefits to Health eCareers' customers."
