Topic: Transitioning IT Careers? Let’s Talk about IT Healthcare Shall We?
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, “Healthcare support occupations (23.6 percent) and healthcare practitioners and technical occupations (15.3 percent) are projected to be among the fastest growing occupational groups during the 2016–26 projections decade.” More projects means the need for more IT healthcare professional resources such as analysts, programmers, DBAs and project managers. Do you have the transferrable skills?

Please join us as we share our IT Healthcare career experiences along with identifying industry leading software companies, hospitals, supporting organizations, challenges and latest trends: electronic medical records (EMR), devices, AWS, blockchain, HL7 interface, population health, etc.
