Boolean Strings: Healthcare Sourcing Techniques
Article posted on booleanstrings.com.
In sync with the times, I want to share some Healthcare sourcing tips to implement in addition to what you are already doing.
I know that sourcing for Healthcare professionals is challenging from experience. Last year, I ran a project sourcing for (bedside) Registered Nurses with 2-3 years of experience for a hospital in Texas. While LinkedIn is a site that can verify the length of experience, it produced a ridiculously small outcome: 200 RNs out of tens of thousands RNs who live in Texas.
However, the industry has its advantages in terms of finding info online, including:
- There are searchable databases
- Hospital websites have bios and contact lists
- Hospital websites have “structure” for filtered search via Custom Search Engines
Sites, where you can search for doctors and nurses, include doximity.com, healthgrades.com, vitals.com, and zocdoc.com (Google these together and you will find more). Physicians’ profiles usually have degrees, licenses, specialization, education, affiliation, address, phone number, and ranking. Some profiles have more info, including email or gender. However, searching within the sites is limited.
