May 13, 2020

Healthcare IT, IT Outsourcing 2 Minute Read

In today’s medical landscape, there’s a genuine shortage of qualified IT professionals.

  • In the U.S., there are 17% more job openings than available qualified IT workers. 15 million IT jobs could go unfilled just this year
  • 60% of IT vacancies remain open for three months or longer
  • IT recruiting costs are ballooning, averaging $11,290-$20,698 per position

Further, even when qualified professionals do fill critical roles, those jobs often exhibit oversized and prohibitive turnover rates.

  • IT has the highest turnover rate of any business sector at 13.2%
  • Most IT pros leave roles within three years, and 20% go within a year

Learn more about what exactly this means and how it can affect your healthcare facility in the infographic below.
