Connecting Health IT Professionals to Safety Net Providers

To meet the health IT career and workforce development needs of safety net providers throughout the United States,  HIMSS announces an expanded career services focus, powered by HIMSS’ JobMine®.  Safety net providers include federally qualified community health centers (FQHCs), rural health clinics, critical access hospitals, and HIV/AIDS providers who care for America’s underserved and uninsured population.

HIMSS has opened its JobMine® to all HRSA grantees and members of the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) to post job openings, search resumes, and take advantage of career development services. This new initiative complements an existing one in which ONC HIT Workforce Development Program participants post resumes, search for job openings, and use HIMSS’ career development services.
HIMSS, working together with these organizations, will provide valuable and targeted resources to streamline the job search and hire process for both safety net providers and health IT professionals seeking job opportunities. HIMSS will conduct a webinar for HRSA grantees and NACHC members on Oct. 4, 2011.
