Top CIOs to focus on the looming IT staffing void in healthcare
BOSTON, Feb. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Technisource, a Randstad company and one of the largest technology talent and services providers in North America, today announced that two of the company's healthcare clients, Concentra and Tallahassee Memorial Hospital, will present their views on the IT staffing void at HIMSS12 Annual Conference & Exposition on February 23rd in Las Vegas, Nev. Currently, Technisource projects a shortage of between 40,000-60,000 IT workers with healthcare expertise within just the next several years. The company estimates the situation to be further exasperated by the retirement of a significant number of existing healthcare IT professionals.
During their presentation, "The Healthcare IT Staffing Void," Suzanne Kosub, CIO of Concentra, and Don Lindsey, CIO of TMH, will address how successful CIOs are identifying, using and leveraging IT talent to successfully manage time-sensitive initiatives, such as the ICD-10 transition and Meaningful Use implementations. The session material will be delivered by CIOs who face two very different IT staffing challenges. Kosub will address Concentra's challenge of being in a large metropolitan area where there is significant competition for IT staff talent. Lindsey will address Tallahassee Memorial Hospital's challenges in a small market with a limited pool of quality IT talent.
Technisource will be located at booth #13530 to showcase multiple options for strategically staffing different companies' IT healthcare needs based upon their unique and highly individual pain points.
Date: Thursday, February 23, 2012
Location: Venetian Sands Expo Convention Center
