The purpose of MHC Insight is to research and report on critical issues facing Michigan’s healthcare workforce. We want to be the primary resource for high-quality, data-driven information on Michigan’s healthcare workforce. By gathering, analyzing, and distributing labor market intelligence on the needs and characteristics of the healthcare workforce, we can obtain new insight about how to best create a cohesive healthcare talent system.
MHC Insight will provide current, actionable traditional and real-time labor market data to assist with crucial decision-making in Michigan’s healthcare economy. This can include but is not limited to: understanding who is hiring and what job opportunities exist; comprehensive labor market reports highlighting the changing scope of the healthcare workforce in Michigan; the design and implementation of surveys to understand skills and competencies desired by employers; and econometric impact analysis of policy changes or economic shocks on the healthcare workforce.
