Health IT staffing is a priority for many healthcare providers as they convert patient records to Electronic Health Records (EHRs). And the demand for health IT professionals has surged since the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) began providing funding for the adoption and "meaningful use" of EHRs under The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act.
As you coordinate your health IT staffing, you may want to consider utilizing contractors to:
► Quickly ramp up health IT staff to implement EHRs in compliance with meaningful use requirements
► Easily reduce health IT staff once EHRs are implemented
► Try health IT professionals before hiring full-time
► Reduce costs – only pay for hours worked (no employer taxes, benefits contributions, etc.)
