Healthcare Legislation and Tech Changes to Impact Jobs

Leveraging deep experience working with electronic medical records and other innovations, Donald Ayers serves healthcare institutions as a consultant in information technology (IT). Healthcare technology consultants satisfy a strong demand stemming from a unique confluence of legislative and demographic factors, namely the passage of the Affordable Care Act and the aging of the baby boomer generation. This demand requires hospitals and doctor’s offices to hire experts like Donald Ayers to attend to issues such as electronic records and patient navigation.

According to a report released recently by College for America, some of the fastest-growing job fields in the United States include those healthcare positions focusing on IT and technical communication skills. In fact, the report especially emphasizes the medical records technician position. Altogether, healthcare jobs are expected to account for about 2 million additional openings in the coming decade. Further, the report indicates that these positions will grow at rates somewhere between 20 and 40 percent.
