Healthcare Seeks Data Analytics Workers

By 2018 the shortage of healthcare analytics workers could reach two million, according to a McKinsey & Co. study. This is reminiscent to the issues faced in other industries during the tech boom in the late '90s.

PwC's Healthcare IT Practice leader Daniel Garrett notes "fifty to sixty percent of CEOs say they're concerned that they don't have the skills required to execute the strategy that they just created."

"The competition for workers with high-tech analytics skills has ... accelerated partly because of new ... patient-monitoring requirements for hospitals, doctors and physician groups under the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare."
- Bertha Coombs, CNBC reporter
