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.
