Big Changes in Healthcare IT Brings New Demand for Top-Level Talent

The rate of change in the Healthcare Information Tech (IT) industry is hurtling at light speed. The pressure is on to improve products, innovation, and partnership dynamics rapidly — all while exceeding consumer and patient care expectations. Moreover, in an increasingly crowded Healthcare IT marketplace finding the right partners is crucial.

The face of Healthcare IT is primarily being transformed due to new technologies and aggressive investment culture. New emerging and existing technologies — such as AI and data visualization — can now measure treatment outcomes like never before.  Moreover, in the past year, mergers and sales of smaller companies have significantly increased as mid-sized companies attempt to bulk up their portfolios. The overarching goal is to achieve better outcomes for delivering care at lower costs.
