One of the big challenges that is talked about all the time on healthcare IT and EMR is how to find a job or how to find the right person for the job that you have. I think it’s a bit of a strange environment, because I know a lot of companies that are talking about the challenge of finding qualified people. On the other hand I also know a lot of people that are looking for health IT jobs. Many who look to be very qualified. Given this, I always wonder how much of the problem is just connecting the right people and jobs together.
One thing that I started a number of years back was to create an EMR and EHR job board. I started it first on EMR and HIPAA. It’s done quite well on that site and so as I’ve done the redesign of the various websites in the Healthcare Scene blog network I’ve added the EMR and EHR job listings to every site on the network.
How it works is quite simple. If you’re looking for a job, go and take a look at the EMR jobs that are listed. If you have a job that you’re trying to fill, then you can post the job. Once the job is posted, it will appear on the EMR job board, and will also appear in the list of EMR jobs in the sidebar of the various Healthcare Scene blogs. Simple as that. I hope many will continue to find this service useful.
