I’ve written previously that the Golden Age of EHR is over and that we’re entering a much different era for EHR and healthcare IT. That’s going to change the dynamics of the healthcare IT career industry in general, but EHR consultants are likely going to be hit the most. While there are still plenty of […]
Earlier this year I posted the Healthcare CIO Mindmap on EMR and HIPAA. It’s a great image put together by Citius Tech right around HIMSS 2014. It’s an amazing representation of the complexity that’s found in healthcare. There are so many branches to what healthcare IT needs to accomplish. For those who didn’t see it, […]

I was really intrigued by this question posed by Forbes. Here’s their initial response to the question: Might computers today have a better nose for human talent than humans do? Why not? Human hiring managers may feel cranky, overwhelmed or cynical on many days. Or they may be using rigid, out-of-date talent-measurement stereotypes that are […]
At my current firm, I recently assumed an expanded role separate from my usual recruiting duties that has me working much more closely with outside vendors and in particular their account managers. As a salesperson by background, oh that’s right, I said it, salesperson, and I’m not ashamed! Get over it, salespeople are not evil. […]

I was fascinated by a graphic that Health IT Consultant posted about how satisfied health IT employees and health IT consultants were with their jobs. The data for the graphic comes from a Healthcare IT Leaders survey of healthcare IT professionals. I’ll admit that I was a bit surprised at the results. I didn’t expect […]

I think many in the EHR community are keeping a close eye on what’s happening with the Department of Defense (DoD) EHR bidding war that’s happening right now. Considering the DoD is planning to spend $11 billion on the EHR contract, that’s going to have a huge impact on the EHR world and particularly the […]
Having the best health IT job board in the industry means we get to work with a lot of amazing people and companies. It’s seriously an honor to help so many people in their job search. Not to mention helping companies “get the right people on the bus.” We just passed 12,000 active resumes in […]
Is your LinkedIn profile a professional or personal social media profile? Is there a black and white delineation for you? Or is this a grey area? There seems to be much debate about the topic out there. Recently someone at my firm suggested we educate our Associates on what to say on their LinkedIn profiles. […]
A lot of people are talking lately about building your own personal brand. With the advent of so many social media platforms, it’s much easier for prospective employers to look you up online. What you do and say on these largely publicly accessibly platforms is what makes up your personal brand. While many people like […]
About 6 months into working at my first healthcare IT position, I started my first blog about EMR software. I’d been working in technology, but knew nothing about healthcare beyond my own visits to the doctors office. Plus, EMR was so new (and yes, it was called EMR back then and not EHR) that everyone […]
