When I first started blogging 8 years ago, I never thought I’d become a full time blogger. 8 years and 6000 blog posts later, it’s safe to say that blogging is a big part of my life. In fact, I’ll probably be a blogger until the day I die. If you asked me a month ago what I could do for organizations looking for healthcare IT talent or individuals seeking healthcare IT jobs, I wouldn’t have much to offer beyond advertising. Today, that all changes.
I’m really excited to announce Healthcare IT Central and Healthcare IT Today are now part of the Healthcare Scene family of health IT websites. You fan find the full announcement press release on EMR and EHR News.
I can’t tell you enough how exciting it is for me to start working with Gwen Darling, the founder and creator of Healthcare IT Central and Healthcare IT Today (Check out her thoughts on the acquisition here). Anyone that’s worked with Gwen or Healthcare IT Central knows how much she cares about those who’ve used Healthcare IT Central to find jobs or fill positions. Much like me, she takes a personal interest in so many members of her community. It’s thrilling to think about how Gwen and I together can help even more people find their dream jobs at the top healthcare companies.
Check out a few of the Healthcare IT Central stats that illustrate the size of the healthcare IT community Gwen created:
-9000+ Recent and Relevant Healthcare IT Resumes
-14,000+ eNewsletter Subscribers
-16,000+ Job Seekers Registered – Upload Your Resume
-750 Registered Employers – Post Your Jobs
On Healthcare IT Central, you can search for health IT jobs from top companies such as Beacon Partners, First Choice Professionals, Cipe Consulting Group, CTG Healthcare, Holland Square Group, Healthcare IS, and many others. Plus, I’m really excited that since Gwen and I started to working together, we’ve already added top health IT consulting companies ESD, Encore Health Resources, and Cordea Consulting and we’re just getting started.
The Healthcare IT Today blog is also a really impressive resource. Since January 2010, 18 of the top healthcare IT career professionals have created 504 posts. For example, take a look at a few of the top blog posts about Epic Certification (150 comments) and becoming a healthcare IT consultant.
What does this mean for Healthcare Scene? For most readers you won’t see much difference. We’re still planning to offer the same great content we’ve been creating for years. However, with the addition of the large Healthcare IT Central and Healthcare IT Today community, we’ll hopefully get even more engaging discussions in the comments from a larger variety of voices.
Plus, I know that there are many in the Healthcare Scene community that are either trying to find better jobs, looking for jobs, or looking to hire qualified health IT professionals. We’ve added a widget in the sidebar of each website for easy access to the latest Healthcare IT Central jobs. You might have also noticed some jobs being posted to our various social media channels. We’ll continue to look for ways to integrate all of the websites in tasteful ways.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the new additions to the family. We’re really excited by what we’ve already been able to accomplish and we’re just getting started. Plus, I feel lucky that Gwen is sticking around to continue running the site. I’m excited to work alongside her and learn from her. Let us know what else we can do to make sure we are the premiere destination for healthcare IT.
