Healthcare Analytics Jobs Are In Demand

I recently had a hospital CIO share with me that he was having trouble filling is healthcare analytics jobs. Analytics jobs are extremely competitive in every market and finding someone with analytics and healthcare knowledge is extremely difficult.

We have thousands of those healthcare analytics jobs listed on Healthcare IT Central. Plus, many jobs that aren’t specifically called healthcare analytics jobs are requiring healthcare analytics skills.

This trend is likely to continue and will probably get worse. Our massive increase in healthcare data and our insatiable desire to extract value from that data are both going to continue to grow. This is going to require healthcare analytics expertise. Certainly, many software companies are making these analytics easier, but the real breakthroughs in healthcare analytics are going to require someone with that expertise combined with an understanding of healthcare.

As you consider your career in healthcare IT, you might want to consider improving your skills in healthcare analytics. There’s nothing better than someone who understands how the data was entered into the IT system and then can analyze that data for the patient’s benefit. Someone with those skills will have a job for a long time to come.
