Interview with the Author of Insourced: How Importing Jobs Impacts the Healthcare Crisis Here and Abroad
The United States does not train a sufficient number of health workers to meet its needs, and relies on importing foreign workers to fill the gaps. “There is no one looking at the entire system from a public health perspective,” Dr. Kate Tulenko, the author of Insourced: How Importing Jobs Impacts the Healthcare Crisis Here and Abroad, said. “No one saying, how many nurses do we actually need? What is the nursing skill set we actually need? How many physicians do we need? What is the real role of a physician?”
Perhaps the U.S. could benefit from the iHRIS Suite to analyze and plan for its health worker needs.
