Top 10 Healthcare IT Today Blog Posts in 2017

The end of 2017 is upon us and it’s always fun to look back at the year that was here at Healthcare IT Today. We feel pretty lucky to run this blog where we can share insights on the healthcare IT career space and the healthcare IT market in general.

2017 has been a great year for healthcare IT. Unlike the past years that were fueled by a fake market created by the EHR stimulus money, things have settled down in 2017 to what I call the new normal. That’s a good thing.
