Healthcare Technology Hiring: A Monthly Roadmap for Building Your Team

To say healthcare is undergoing a digital transformation is almost an understatement — every facet of the industry is advancing as existing technologies evolve and new technology emerges. Healthcare information technology (HIT) is a significant driver of this evolution, with electronic health records (EHR) systems like Epic and enterprise resource planning (ERP) software leading the way. To meet these demands, healthcare organizations are expected to pour $1.1 trillion into the global HIT sector by 2032, according to Global Market Insights.

EHR systems act as the central nervous system of patient data while ERP software facilitates smooth financial and operational workflows. Efficiently managing these systems is critical for maximizing operational efficiency, enhancing patient care delivery, and achieving organizational goals. To do so, organizations must have an effective recruitment strategy to find talent with EHR and ERP skills that match their needs. This might require establishing new roles on your team and a monthly hiring plan. 

With that in mind, this recruitment roadmap for the rest of this year will help healthcare organizations proactively plan and address their staffing requirements as they embark on their EHR and ERP projects. 

Your Monthly Guide to Healthcare Technology Staffing

To assemble your optimal healthcare technology team, consider filling these roles each month for the rest of the year.


Health Informatics Specialists: With data-driven decision-making becoming increasingly prevalent, demand for health informatics specialists is growing. They ensure accurate data capture, analysis, and utilization, enabling informed decision-making at all levels of your healthcare organization.

Cybersecurity Analysts: As more and more devices connect to a facility’s EHR software, cybersecurity risks rise in kind. Cybersecurity analysts are essential to safeguard sensitive patient information, lowering the risks of malware or hackers that threaten to breach confidential patient data. They implement robust data security measures, conduct vulnerability assessments, and develop incident response plans. 

Clinical Analysts: Their expertise lies in understanding clinical workflows, identifying pain points, and recommending improvements. They collaborate with EHR end users to gather insights and ensure the system supports seamless patient care.


Clinical IT Support Technicians: As your organization prepares for the second half of the year, a reliable and responsive clinical IT support team is critical. These technicians will provide essential technical assistance to clinicians on using EHR systems and will troubleshoot software-related issues.

ERP System Administrators: With ERP systems managing a vast array of processes, dedicated ERP system administrators ensure system uptime, security, and performance. They handle user access management, perform system backups, and monitor system health.


End-Use EHR Trainers: Onboarding new staff and ensuring existing staff remain proficient requires dedicated EHR trainers. They work closely with clinical and administrative staff to educate them on new features, updates, and best practices. They will develop and deliver training programs on EHR functionalities and workflows, empowering staff to leverage the system effectively. This proactive approach minimizes resistance to change, enhances user adoption, and can even reduce clinician burnout. 

ERP Functional Consultants: Having experienced ERP functional consultants onboard allows organizations to optimize their ERP system configurations for maximum efficiency. They analyze business processes, identify improvement opportunities, and customize ERP functionalities to meet your organization’s specific needs.


Telehealth Coordinators: With the rise of telehealth services, telehealth coordinators are an integral part of any healthcare team, managing patient appointments, troubleshooting technical issues, and ensuring a smooth virtual care experience.

ERP and EHR Project Managers: As healthcare organizations execute their ERP and EHR optimization projects, skilled project managers are crucial for leading these initiatives. They oversee the resources, planning, execution, and monitoring of optimization initiatives, ensuring they align with organizational objectives and meet project budget and timelines.


EHR Quality Assurance Analysts: Maintaining accurate and compliant patient records is the backbone of your EHR system. EHR quality assurance analysts ensure the EHR system meets all regulatory standards and carry out data integrity audits to identify any discrepancies.

Business Intelligence Analysts: Data can be a powerful tool for strategic planning. Business intelligence analysts study the vast amounts of data generated by EHR and ERP systems to uncover actionable insights, informing decision-making for year-end reporting and future planning.


EHR Support Specialists: The end of the year often brings a surge in system usage. Having reliable EHR support specialists readily available ensures prompt resolution of any technical issues staff may encounter.

ERP Implementation Consultants: As organizations plan for the coming year, the expertise of ERP implementation consultants becomes invaluable. They will help your organization define project goals, develop implementation plans, and ensure a smooth transition to any new ERP functionalities planned for the coming year.
