A recent article in the Boston Business Journal discussed the high demand for IT products and IT services in the healthcare industry. IT contractor hiring needs will subsequently open up, as clients will need healthcare IT specialists to implement and train on the new technologies. Many doctors have been waiting on the new federal regulations that have just been released. One CEO mentioned that they would most likely double the amount of employees they currently have by the end of the year. For IT recruiters and IT recruitment firms, this equates to significant contract IT staffing opportunities.
Some IT staffing agencies, like AVID Technical Resources, have embraced the Healthcare IT movement. AVID created a Healthcare IT staffing division a couple of years ago. Since the division’s inception, they have secured a number of local healthcare clients (including Boston-based hospitals) as well as national healthcare IT vendors such as Siemens Medical.
