The Employment Report for February, 2013: Health Care Sector Stimulates Job Growth Throughout the Recession

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) February 12, 2013

The economy appears to be in a calming trend. Some financial experts are giving the credit, at least in part, to the nation's Health Care sector. According to the National Journal, new jobs have increasingly continued to pour out from the Health Care Industry since the recession began in 2007. The journal also mentioned of a recent study released by the American Hospital Association examining the contribution of the Nation's hospitals in a 2011 report.

Even back in 2011, hospitals by themselves were supporting more than 10 million jobs as well as creating over 2 trillion dollars in economic activity annually. The number of jobs in hospitals as well as other areas of Health Care have and are only expected to continue to grow steadily as the number of people added to the Health Care system increases. (, 2/1/2013) While the integration of Healthcare Information Systems into the existing framework at present may seem like questionable timing, it is a vital imperative in order to incorporate as many patients.

The ageing population and the addition of the previously uninsured to the medical system is creating such a significant rise in demand for health care services that it is requiring a massive shift in the country's resources to be allocated toward the medical field and its related industries. It is a much bigger issue that can no longer be put off as a single industry concern.

Del Johnston, Manager of Client Relations at cautions, "It is important not to underestimate the impact Health Care IT can have on our Financial Sector. I think for many people this may come out of nowhere, and yet, it is really staring them in the face. It is almost as if people assume that the Health Care Industry integrated IT systems and Electronic Record Keeping back in the 90's when many of the industries were going through their IT boom. That just wasn't the case. The amount of redundancy and waste caused by paper systems is almost overwhelming to consider; the scheduling issues, the communication problems, the security and HIPAA problems. The good news is that we're just seeing the beginning of the solutions that can be provided, also."

The Affordable Care Act is only one stepping stone which addresses the continuity of care for providing a regulatory safety net across the country for an industry which has outgrown its financial roots. However, it also puts into place those technologies for information systems and electronic record keeping which would lower costs, reduce redundancies, and allow for greater oversight and access by the patients themselves, in order to reduce confusion over treatments and errors. For the physicians, the more involved a patient feels they are their treatment, the more likely they are to actually follow the prescribed treatment, which is an obvious benefit to both parties.

These technologies do take time to implement and are still coming in small steps before everyone will have complete access and feel the full benefit. However, the other side of the coin is that they require qualified personnel to implement them, as well as train the existing medical personnel in their use. The number of these HIT and new Health positions created may seem like a boon to the unemployment rate on the surface.

"Unfortunately, the wall that many employers as well as many job seekers are running into is; here is this new field which has opened up and it requires two skillsets which previously did not necessarily need to go together. It's difficult to go to an entire industry and tell them, this is not a drill; you need to know this in order to get a job now. However, the light at the end of the tunnel is that these changes, given the opportunity, will make your jobs easier, less stressful, more efficient and create more of them in the long run," says John Burkhardt Managing Director of is one of the most notable and essential resources for accessing and finding healthcare, pharmaceutical, and bio-tech employment information on the internet.
