Medical Staffing Industry Predicts Huge Growth for EHR Careers

Healthcare facilities continue to convert paper records to digital in order to comply with the ACA mandate for a national health network, creating new openings for careers in electronic health records (EHR).

Seasoned HIM professionals will need to pursue hands-on training in new EHR technology to remain current and take advantage of the new positions opening up, including training and education as well as program-based responsibilities such as quality management and content compliance. Privacy, security, and the integrity of information coming from across various health organizations will all play a major role in the requirements of EHR managers as the program is fully rolled out.

In addition, as non-HIM professionals are attracted to the technical aspects of EHR they will create competition in the HIM field; they have the potential to push out HIM professionals who are unable or unwilling to keep up with the changing technology.

Medical staffing companies can develop a strong advantage in transition to EHR by recruiting and staffing employees who are fully trained in medical coding and terminology, as well as the technical aspects involved in transferring and maintaining electronic records. Bringing in the right people will ensure a competitive edge when making contracts with healthcare facilities.
