Shortage of Health IT Workers Slows Hospital Initiatives

New data and electronic health record (EHR) initiatives, have the healthcare industry competing with large technology firms for skilled IT workers. However, hospitals struggle to compete in terms of compensation, which has forced them to delay projects while positions are vacant.

Health IT jobs are projected to increase 15% to 37% by 2020, faster than growth for other types of jobs. Computer information-security analyst jobs are projected to increase “much faster than average” through 2020, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

"In 2013, executive-level IT professionals averaged $189,435 in salary, up 6.1% from the prior year."
