Is an Interim Leader Right for Your Organization?

by

Hugo Aguas, MPA, Director of Interim Services and Kate Fenner, PhD, RN, Managing Director and CEO of Compass Clinical Consulting discuss how to evaluate if an interim healthcare leader is right for your organization in Part 3 of a series about interim healthcare leaders, published in Becker’s Hospital Review.

Interim managers, directors, and even C-suite positions are best filled only after careful consideration. Effective interims, people who perform interim work as a career, as opposed to those just seeking to fill time and maintain an income between permanent positions, are not inexpensive. Not all vacancies merit the investment of resources required.

So, when do you contract for an interim and when do you use an internal appointment or even leave a position vacant? There are a few considerations that should weigh into any calculation.

The decision to use a professional interim for a vacant hospital management or leadership position is complex. The direct cost of the interim is but one factor in the cost-benefit equation.

Read more about the considerations to factor in when making a decision about investing in an interim in Becker’s Hospital Review.
