For medical organizations that are growing, it’s an uphill battle to stay ahead of the game without cutting corners or compromising on patient care. Read about how Concierge Telemedicine can help you find the medical professionals you need with less headache and hassle.
Lowering Costs by Decreasing Turnover
Concierge telemedicine reduces turnover rates while saving your organization money because medical staff members get paid for their time while working instead of while looking for work.

What does a chief medical officer do?
As chief medical officer of a company or corporation you will use your expertise in preventative medicine to create comprehensive healthcare programs that will encourage employees/members to live healthier lifestyles by developing wellness guidelines and implementing health risk assessments.”
These individuals act as overseers of both preventative care for their employees as well as diagnostic services. They work closely with other chief medical officers to establish guidelines for preventative care, chief medical information officers (CMIOs) and chief scientific officers (CSOs).
Key responsibilities of the chief medical officer include patient safety, wellness programs, clinical support services, case management, front desk operations and interdisciplinary coordination.
The chief medical officer is responsible for acting as the leader of the company’s health care division. This individual works closely with other chief medical officers, chief information officers and chief scientific officers to establish standards across the company.
The CMO would be responsible for promoting healthy behaviours among employees by providing employee assistance programs (EAPs), offering programming for exercise or stress reduction, conducting regular check-ups at on-site clinics and investing in healthcare technologies that will improve the affordability and productivity of the health care sector.
Chief medical officers are chief executives within organizations that work to ensure employees have access to appropriate, high-quality medical care. Chief medical officers guide their organization’s philosophy on health care, advocating for best practices in medicine and programs that promote employee wellness.
The chief medical officer works with chief information officers and chief scientific officers on an organization’s efforts to streamline healthcare costs, reduce patient wait times and increase communication across a company’s health care divisions.
The chief medical officer is responsible for managing the administrative aspects of a company’s health plan, including reviewing application materials from new members or patients requesting treatment for existing members, conducting audits of company policies’ effectiveness, supervising staff who handle applications or other general healthcare concerns, and overseeing managers who oversee specific population groups within the health care plan.
The chief medical officer also helps to establish standards for preventative care across a company’s various health care divisions.
Chief medical officers may be required to monitor and ensure that there is no discrimination or harassment of those affected by illness or injury – ensuring that these procedures are fair and just. Some chief medical officers may also be responsible for training on general health issues such as sexual abuse, stress, violence and protection against infectious diseases within a company.

How is a chief medical officer appointed?
One way a chief medical officer can be appointed is through an assessment process which includes a recruitment interview. In this process candidates are assessed on their education, knowledge and other attributes to determine if they have the skills and abilities to fill the chief medical officer role. The candidate’s individual psychology is also evaluated so that chief medical officers can be hired who will understand how the health department works and help chief medical officers build a better working environment.
Chief medical officer should have a good understanding of what he / she will do in the company. Needs assessment provides an opportunity for CMOs to explain their vision for health service delivery at organizational, unit or workstation level from his / her perspective – especially in terms of its impact on safety and business performance.
In order to get appointed as chief medical officer one needs to have chief medical officer experience. Many chief medical officers have worked in this role for very large companies, so it is important to demonstrate that you are ready for this step of your career.
Larger employers tend to be less flexible than smaller ones in allowing chief medical officers to work part-time or job share. For chief medical officers who want a lower pressure but still financially rewarding position, jobs such as chief medical officer research and chief medical officer training offer chief medical officer opportunities without the stress of patient care.
Job outlook for chief medical officers is expected to increase by 14% between 2012 and 2022. This growth rate will vary by company and industry – with health care providers experiencing much faster growth than sales-related industries.
How can a Chief Medical Officer Do a Better Job With a Remote Specialist?
A chief medical officer (CMO) has many responsibilities, including their patients’ overall health. A chief medical officer must travel to multiple locations in order to provide leadership, patient caseload management, and act as an educator for the physicians who work on site at a particular location.
Nowadays this job has become more challenging because there are so many types of patients that require special attention or treatment.
Chief medical officers are now tasked with managing patients that have chronic illnesses or mental illnesses. A chief medical officer must also manage the interaction between the physicians and their patients to ensure that they can provide education and resources for the physician(s) on site.
To be a chief medical officer requires many skills. Chief medical officers need to be well educated to handle various patient cases and issues, but chief medical officers should also be knowledgeable about public relations and communication skills.
Often chief medical officers must field requests from other physicians and staff members at hospitals, clinics, and other health care facilities; chief medical officers might work evenings or weekends in order to accommodate people’s schedules; chief medical officers often have to work out of their home.
A chief medical officer must be able to handle stress on a daily basis, so chief medical officers need to have great time management skills and the ability to multitask. One challenge chief medical officers face is that they often lack support staff like nurses or physician assistants; chief medical officers must do everything themselves.
A remote specialist like a telemedicine practitioner (remote medicine specialist) would probably be an excellent addition because it would allow chief medical officers more time at home with their family.
Remote specialists are professionals who offer remote consulting services to physicians, chief medical officers, and patients. Remote specialists might work out of their home or office, or they might travel to different locations to meet with chief medical officers.
The chief medical officer can give telemedicine practitioners an assignment for a particular patient case; the telemedicine practitioner will then gather information about the chief medical officer’s patient case and create a report within no more than 24 hours’ time.
A chief medical officer could hire a few telemedicine practitioners at once so that when they’re on-site caring for their patients they’ll have someone else that can help them in between appointments by tracking down information or getting resources ready. By hiring a chief medical officer, chief medical officers won’t have to spend extra time away from their family and can be more efficient in what they need to do.
By hiring a chief medical officer that uses telemedicine services, chief medical officers could spend less time caring for patients while still maintaining the highest levels of care for them. This would help chief medical officers build trust with their patients since chief medical officers would have more face-to-face interactions with them.
How to Hire Remote Medical Specialists as Independent Contractors for your Company
The first step to consider when hiring specialists as independent contractors is what will be expected of them in terms of production and dedication to their jobs. This may vary between departments. For example, an independent contractor physician with a focus on psychiatry may need more freedom than one that specializes in pediatrics due to the different work hours demanded by each field.
Before beginning official onboarding or advertising positions, it’s important to choose (and document) specific tasks that specialists will be expected to complete. This is especially important because specialists, as independent contractors, are not subject to the same legal boundaries that regular employees are.
For example, a company cannot require specialists to work a certain number of hours, although specialists should expect to be available at least 40 hours per week. It’s also illegal for an employer to ask specialists what their wage or salary will be before they offer them a job position.
It’s illegal for employers and independent specialists to discuss payment until after specialists have been formally hired and assigned tasks that they will receive compensation for completing.
Additionally, employers must pay specialists on a pre-agreed upon schedule according to the terms set out in the contracts. These may vary from specialists to specialists, but it’s important for employers to include methods of dispute resolution in contract language (i.e., arbitration or mediation) should specialists feel that they are not fairly compensated.
If specialists feel that their services are no longer required by the company, then specialists must be given ample notice and compensation for future unused hours worked prior to formal termination of the working relationship.
