re: Does Your Health IT Career Require Another Diploma?
The problem with healthcare centers is that they are pretty scare if people with IT background move into health IT. With the rapid changes in IT, and the way we, with background in IT are coping with it, we can handle health IT with relative ease than the so called clinicians. Give us a chance, and the world will never be the same again. Their fear is that we can automate a lot of things that could eliminate many positions in the hospital or healthcare. I don't blame them. After all, we automated so many things in non-health related areas that many of us were even eliminated from our positions. Anyway, these healthcare centers do not have a choice; we are taking over, and enjoy the ride!
