OCTOBER 4, 2016 (SEATTLE)—For years, the information healthcare IT professionals had about compensation norms was anecdotal: a friend who’d worked here made X, a colleague used to work there and only made Y but had a great benefits package. More recently, organizations have increased transparency about compensation, sites like Payscale and Glassdoor started aggregating salary data, and specialty recruitment firms like Greythorn have published salary reports based on annual surveys of HIT professionals. Industry members have more information than ever, yet confusion often remains due to lack of context. What do these numbers actually mean when one is looking for a new job?
That’s why this year, Greythorn’s Healthcare IT Market Report will be different.
“We recognize that past reports were useful as a snapshot of what was the current state of the industry,” explained Ben Weber, Greythorn’s Managing Director. “The aim of the 2017 report is to build on that foundation, and highlight trends that emerge from the last three years’ worth of data. This should help both job seekers and employers make more informed decisions about appropriate compensation packages.”
In order to provide this data, your help is needed. If you work in healthcare IT, please consider taking the 10-minute anonymous survey, which covers questions about salary, benefits, and career motivation. For every completed response, Greythorn will donate $1 to the Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism, which helps families affected by autism live life to the fullest.
Greythorn is a specialist technology and healthcare IT recruitment consultancy, placing highly skilled talent across the United States and Canada in full-time and contract roles.
