Healthcare IT From The Ground Up

HealthcareITSkills.com was launched mainly to meet the needs of those who are not at the executive level. There are plenty of Healthcare IT sites targeted toward CIOs and CEOs, but not so many that help you understand the nuts & bolts- the foundational skills that are hard to grasp if you’re not already in the Healthcare IT sector. A good place to look first is the Get Started page, where you can find a few Healthcare IT statistics, learn where the best jobs are, and learn how a hospital IT department is structured. If you lack technical skills, you can check out the Technical Skills Category for posts that will give you a good start.
