The purpose of this Financial Impact Tool is assist you in realizing the actual costs of provider turnover. These costs can include direct costs, such as advertising and recruiting services, but also indirect costs, such as staff time dedicated to finding locum tenens and permanent providers. This tool attempts to quantify the “tangible” costs involved in provider turnover. Wherever separate data are available for nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and physicians, they are separated into separate tabs for NonPhysician Providers and Physicians.
This tool was produced in Excel format so that organizations can input values from their own records or use the included National Estimates based on physician data to help calculate the tangible costs of provider turnover at their sites.
