1 The Healthcare Education – Industry Partnership A program of Minnesota State Colleges and Universities

2 Background on the Healthcare Education – Industry Partnership Founded in 1998 by Minnesota Legislature as one of five Targeted Industry Partnerships Continued funding and support from grants and Minnesota State Colleges and Universities

3 Mission of the Healthcare Education - Industry Partnership Working in partnership to provide innovative leadership to guide the education and training of a high quality workforce in a rapidly changing industry

4 Healthcare Education – Industry Partnership Minnesota State Colleges and Universities – educating 80% of nurses, 50% allied health Engage healthcare providers, state agencies in strategic planning Led by Partnership Council Collect and analyze workforce data Identify and implement solutions

5 Initiatives Nursing –Core Curriculum –Clinical Sites –Simulation –Articulation –Faculty K-12 –Youth Apprenticeships –HOSA –Core Curriculum Immigrant and Refugee –Community Health Worker –Commission on the Emerging Worker –Career Pathways

6 Initiatives Nursing –Core Curriculum –Clinical Sites –Simulation –Articulation –Faculty K-12 –Youth Apprenticeships –HOSA –Core Curriculum Immigrant and Refugee –Community Health Worker –Commission on the Emerging Worker –Career Pathways Allied Health

7 Why Healthcare Providers Should Care About Allied Health Healthcare shortages/fewer schools producing healthcare professionals Other industries want our skilled workforce Provide most of the diagnostic data needed for our providers to make decisions Healthcare facilities could not stay open without this skilled workforce

8 Allied Health Concerns/Issues Rad Tech –General rad tech is stable –Need for specialties – MRI, CT –Possible loss of programs? CV Tech –Small programs; none in the Twin Cities Metro area –Incumbent training –Entry-level personnel Dental Hygiene and Assisting –Ability to address dental shortage through expanded functions Clinical Laboratory

9 HEIPs Clinical Laboratory Workgroup Working together to address workforce shortages since 1999 Comprised of laboratory managers of urban and rural hospitals, biomedical industry representatives, Minnesota Department of Health, laboratory educators, Minnesota Hospital Association Meets monthly

10 Organizations Involved Aerotek Allina Childrens Hospital DEED Fairview Health System Fairview-University Medical Center HealthEast Hennepin County Medical Center Hibbing Community College Kanabec Hospital MDH North Hennepin Technical College Saint Paul College South Central Technical College University of Minnesota Winona Health System

11 Shortage Documented need for baccalaureate degree laboratory personnel annually Accredited CLS programs have a waiting list –50% of students at U of M programs have a previous BS degree –45% diversity in newest class In contrast, CLT (A.S.) programs have unused capacity (50% filled in 2002) and are trying to recruit more students

12 Shortage (cont.) Vacancy Rate 10-20% 120,000 incremental positions (12,000 per year) –75,000 new jobs –45,000 vacancies (retirements) 4,100 graduates per year from accredited programs Shortage = 8,000/year

13 Reasons for Increased Demand 70% of objective information used in diagnosis and treatment comes from the laboratory Aging population needs care in increasing numbers Acuity and complexity of patient population increasing Automation improves productivity, but new technology and new tests, especially DNA based testing, maintain the demand for those with skills Expanded roles for clinical laboratory staff, both in health care and the biotech industry Need for laboratory capacity to respond to emerging infections, bioterrorism, emergency preparedness

14 Reasons for Decreased/Stagnant Supply Other options in healthcare and industry are more attractive –Hours –Salary –Education Unknown profession Availability of educational institutions

15 Activities of HEIP Clinical Laboratory Workgroup Legislative/Advocacy New Curriculum Model Biomedical Partnerships Compensation Histotech

16 Legislative/Advocacy Subcommittee Advocacy Day in April and November Communication with others –HEIP Policy Council –Presence at public hearings –Department of Health bioterrorism committees –Hospital Association members/workforce committee

17 Laboratory Education in MN 3 CLS/MT programs in the state –Hennepin County Medical Center (8) –Fairview (5) –University of Minnesota (40)

18

19 Laboratory Education in MN 3 CLS/MT programs in the state –Hennepin County Medical Center (8) –Fairview (5) –University of Minnesota (40) Stressful year for the laboratory community which mobilized members to preserve and strengthen the program at the U of M Current outlook is good

20 Compensation Subcommittee Salary survey interpretations and accuracy –How to help current surveys improve –How to gather accurate lab-specific information –How to distribute and publicize salary information Upcoming Survey

21 Biotech/Biomed Partnerships Medical Alley U of M program working with biotech/biomed employers to meet their educational needs Exploration of a biotech/biomed track at the U of M

22 New Curriculum Feasibility of a curriculum revision or additional curricular option for core bench MLT/CLTs Survey of laboratory managers –Sent to 285 lab managers throughout the state –Collected information on lab size and use of MLT/CLTs The use of CLT/MLTs varies considerably between urban and rural Several competencies being taught are actually not required by rural providers but the time investment those competencies require has not been investigated

23 Histotech Newest subcommittee Just starting to strategize solutions

24 Conclusions Shortages Require: –Expansion of programs – Metro & Greater Minnesota –Commitment to solutions –Collaboration
