Healthcare IT Market Salary Survey

For the past couple of years, we’ve helped support Greythorn’s efforts to survey the healthcare IT marketplace. The survey has always produced an interesting look into the salary, job satisfaction, and benefits packages that are being offered across the health care IT industry. We hope that readers of Hospital EMR and EHR will participate in their 2016 survey so they have the best data possible.

We get to see the challenge of healthcare IT job seekers every day on our Healthcare IT Central job board. One of the challenges we see people face over and over is the decision of whether to leave their current job or not. The data from the Greythorn health care IT market survey is one way to assess whether you should leave your current position for greener pastures or whether your current position is one of the greener pastures and you just didn’t realize it.

Plus, the survey looks at a lot of other areas of health care IT beyond just salary. For example, in the past couple years, the market survey showed us the major shift that was happening as EHR experts moved from being consultants to full time employees.

The survey is anonymous and takes 10 minutes to complete, covering questions of salary, benefits packages, career motivation, job satisfaction, and more. A free report based on this research will be published and share on Hospital EMR and EHR in a future post. I hope you’ll participate so the report reflects the best data possible.
