Increased Health IT Hiring Brings Challenges

According to the first HIMMS Analytics Health IT Workforce Study, 79% of organizations are hiring.

But Jennifer Horowitz, senior director of HIMSS Analytics, says "as healthcare organizations become increasingly sophisticated with their IT initiatives, human resource leaders are experiencing a new set of hiring challenges"

"HIMSS researchers showed how these shortages are sometimes having an unwelcome effect of health IT initiatives' forward motion."
- Healthcare IT News
These challenges include putting IT initiatives on hold: approximately one-third of healthcare providers indicated delaying an IT initiative owing to staffing shortages. Many noted that this could create risks to patient care and revenue generation.

A lack of qualified IT workers was the biggest challenge to full staffing and one solution to this is outsourcing. Seventy-six percent of provider respondents currently utilize a service rather than hiring directly and 93 percent plan to outsource in the next year. Such services include low-cost on-demand SaaS analytics for proactive privacy breach detection and user access compliance/attestation reporting.

Gartner - Compliance as a Service and Security as a Service Increasingly Popular

Compliance was a driver for growth in security software even at a time of tight IT budget. Worldwide security software revenue totaled $17.7 billion in 2011, a 7.5 percent increase from 2010 revenue of $16.4 billion.
"Products within the security market are undergoing rapid evolution, in terms of both new delivery models — with security as a service (SaaS) showing increasing popularity — and new technologies being introduced, often by startup companies."
- Ruggero Contu, research director, Gartner
