Where the Jobs Are: Hiring Spree is Underway for Health Information Specialists Finds PwC US Survey
Date:2/23/2012

nt of pharmaceutical / life sciences companies plan to increase hiring of technical informatics professionals over the next two years.
  • Four in ten hospital and provider respondents surveyed said that lack of skilled informatics staff is a barrier to developing a comprehensive clinical informatics program.
  • Half of hospitals and physician respondents said that misalignment of clinical and technology teams is an organizational barrier, something they will need to address to incorporate sophisticated analytics into clinicians' everyday work. 
  • The American Board of Medical Specialties approved clinical informatics as a board-certified medical subspecialty in September 2011.  Still, big changes are required in the medical and nursing school curricula to provide students with insight and understanding of how to develop and use clinical data, says PwC.  Informaticists are not the only ones who need core informatics competencies; clinicians who deliver care to patients need them, too. Students need to learn to apply quantitative knowledge, reasoning, and informatics tools to diagnostic and therapeutic clinical decision making, but physicians with whom students work during residency may not be familiar with these informatics skills needed for emerging care models.

    PwC's report, due to be published later this month, will look at the overall state of clinical informatics, the mix of clinical and technical staffing and needs, organizational barriers to development of a comprehensive informatics program as well as a deep exploration of how each segment of the health industry – hospitals, insurers, and pharmaceutical and life sciences companies – plan to use informatics as the basis for reimbursement, patient engagement and innovation through research or new business opportunities.
