Healthcare IT is not just for programmers with years of experience. There are opportunities for Educators and Trainers, Project Managers, Medical Assistants, Nurses, Patient Registration Assistants, and anyone with at least a fair amount of technical knowledge.

Many Healthcare organizations have a culture that values a commitment first to patient safety and satisfaction, with the understanding that staff can always learn the technology on top of those core “people skills”. So if you have a drive to help people first, and the ability to learn new technologies, Healthcare IT can be the place where you build a lifelong career.

Healthcare IT From The Ground Up

LearnHealthTech.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.
