These EMR and Healthcare IT related articles have been viewed over 16 million times. John also manages Healthcare IT Central and Healthcare IT Today, the leading career Health IT job board and blog.

Late last year I acquired Healthcare IT Central, a healthcare IT job board and career website and have since been diving into the health IT jobs and recruiting space. The site continues to grow at an amazing rate. We now are helping 20,568 job seekers find employment from over 800 health IT companies. In fact, 11,649 healthcare IT professionals have active resumes in our system and we send out a weekly Health IT eNewsletter each week to almost 16,000 Health IT professionals.

If you’re out there looking for a job in the Healthcare IT field, I recommend you register as a job seeker and search through our hundreds of healthcare IT jobs. All of this is offered for free to job seekers. It’s so incredibly satisfying to help thousands of people find a job in healthcare IT. Hopefully many readers of this site will find it helpful as well.

We also offer a number of resources for health IT employers that want to post their jobs, search our resume database for the right candidate or sponsor the weekly newsletter. A little birdie told me we might be rolling out a series of health IT career focused webinars as well.

Finding the right people for your organization is a really challenging task. However, once you find the right one, it’s incredibly satisfying as well.

Along with Healthcare IT Central’s job board, the Healthcare IT Today blog provides some really valuable health IT focused career content. Take a look at a few recent posts:

  • What Not to Do: Radio Silence – A great look at what not to do when searching for a job.
  • 4 Main Compensation Options for Health IT Consultants – A lot of people are considering switching jobs and becoming consultants. This post will give you a lot of insight on the different consultant payment options.
  • My Best Career Advice – This is part of the new “Ask Cassie” series where you can ask a health IT career question and Cassie Sturdevant will answer it in a future post. Feel free to ask in the comments of this post and I’ll forward it on to her as well.

I’ll admit that I’m still really new in the health IT recruiting, jobs and career space. However, I’ve enjoyed learning the various idiosyncrasies. If you have thoughts, ideas, or comments on the various sites, I’d love to hear them. I always love learning new things and making new connections.

While it might seem counterintuitive, the holidays are some of the best times to search for a job.  If you’re looking to improve on your current position, you can search for a health IT job or check out some of these popular searches:

This month we’ve had almost as many jobs posted as last month and we’re only half way through the month. The other great part is that if you don’t see a job you like you can set up a job agent to notify you when certain types of jobs are posted.

EHR Job Website Joins Healthcare Scene Family – Healthcare IT Central

For those of you who don’t read EMR and HIPAA (which is a shame if you don’t, but you can rectify that by subscribing to its email list now), you might have missed the big announcement that we’d acquired the healthcare IT job board called Healthcare IT Central and its health IT employment blog Healthcare IT Today. It’s been really excited bringing together such a great EMR and EHR job resource with my network of EMR, EHR and Health IT blogs.

Over time we’ll be slowly integrating the sites together where it makes sense. For example, you’ll find a new job listing widget in the sidebar of this site. Every other weekend we’ll be doing a job posting on this site that highlights the various Healthcare IT Central jobs along with covering any other job resources we create.

For example, if you’re interested in learning about how much healthcare IT professionals are making, then you’ll want to check out this survey we’re doing with Greythorn (fill out the survey here). It only takes 10 minutes to complete and Greythorn will donate $1 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bellevue and Chicago for every response they receive. We’ll be publishing the results from the survey in future posts.

If you’re an employer looking to hire someone in healthcare IT, then sign up as an employer. With over 16,000 job registrants and approaching 10,000 recently updated resumes, Healthcare IT Central is a really great resource for anyone trying to hire someone in healthcare IT.

For those readers who might be looking to improve on their current job or are looking for a job, you can search for a health IT job or check out some of these popular searches:

I’m really excited about this new venture into the world of healthcare IT recruiting. I’ve already had a chance to see the impact that a site like this has on so many people’s lives. I look forward to doing even more to help people find the right job and companies to find the right people.

If you have any suggestions, comments, thoughts, reactions, I look forward to reading them in the comments or privately on our contact us page.

Signs EMR Job Market is Improving

Joe from Healthcare IT today wrote an interesting post highlighting 5 signs why the healthcare IT (which I translate as EMR) job market is heating up. Here’s a summary of his 5 reasons:
-His Healthcare IT friends that were unemployed are starting to find jobs
-The Healthcare IT and EMR job boards are overflowing with good jobs (I’ve seen lots of jobs on these boards myself)
-The number of projects at clients and potential clients has risen dramatically. Meaningful Use and ICD-10 initiatives are finally starting to happen
-Headhunters are starting to call
-Bloggers, columnists and reporters are writing about “the recovery” and how to get ready for it

Not a bad list. I’m seeing a large number of jobs listed on my EMR and HIPAA job board and even more click throughs to those jobs. I think that’s another really good sign. Although, I think we still have a ways to go, the healthcare job market and healthcare IT in particular has got to be one of the best ones out there right now.
