Executive recruiters bring a unique perspective on changes in the health system. By knowing the hiring needs of health care organizations, recruiters understand how the organizations are reacting to changes that have already occurred and how their strategies for dealing with the changes set the direction for future trends in the health system. This Issue Brief reports on a roundtable discussion during which a group of executive recruiters considered how health system changes are reflected in recruitment efforts in health care, and what the shifts in recruitment priorities indicate for the future direction and pace of health system change. The roundtable was sponsored by the Center for Studying Health System Change.
