  • Allied Health
why healthcare providers should care about allied health
Why Healthcare Providers Should Care About Allied Health
  • Healthcare shortages/fewer schools producing healthcare professionals
  • Other industries want our skilled workforce
  • Provide most of the diagnostic data needed for our providers to make decisions
  • Healthcare facilities could not stay open without this skilled workforce
allied health concerns issues
Allied Health Concerns/Issues
  • Rad Tech
    • General rad tech is stable
    • Need for specialties – MRI, CT
    • Possible loss of programs?
  • CV Tech
    • Small programs; none in the Twin Cities Metro area
    • Incumbent training
    • Entry-level personnel
  • Dental Hygiene and Assisting
    • Ability to address dental shortage through expanded functions
  • Clinical Laboratory
heip s clinical laboratory workgroup

shortage
Shortage
  • Documented need for 200 + baccalaureate degree laboratory personnel annually
  • Accredited CLS programs have a waiting list
    • 50% of students at U of M programs have a previous BS degree
    • 45% “diversity” in newest class
  • In contrast, CLT (A.S.) programs have unused capacity (50% filled in 2002) and are trying to recruit more students
shortage cont
Shortage (cont.)
  • Vacancy Rate 10-20%
  • 120,000 incremental positions (12,000 per year)
    • 75,000 new jobs
    • 45,000 vacancies (retirements)
  • 4,100 graduates per year from accredited programs
  • Shortage = 8,000/year
reasons for increased demand
Reasons for Increased Demand
  • 70% of objective information used in diagnosis and treatment comes from the laboratory
  • Aging population needs care in increasing numbers
  • Acuity and complexity of patient population increasing
  • Automation improves productivity, but new technology and new tests, especially DNA based testing, maintain the demand for those with skills
  • Expanded roles for clinical laboratory staff, both in health care and the biotech industry
  • Need for laboratory capacity to respond to emerging infections, bioterrorism, emergency preparedness
reasons for decreased stagnant supply
Reasons for Decreased/Stagnant Supply
  • Other options in healthcare and industry are more attractive
    • Hours
    • Salary
    • Education
  • “Unknown” profession
  • Availability of educational institutions

new curriculum
New Curriculum
  • Feasibility of a curriculum revision or additional curricular option for “core bench” MLT/CLTs
  • Survey of laboratory managers
    • Sent to 285 lab managers throughout the state
    • Collected information on lab size and use of MLT/CLTs
  • The use of CLT/MLTs varies considerably between urban and rural
  • Several competencies being taught are actually not required by rural providers but the time investment those competencies require has not been investigated
