Health care organizations turn to technical staffing providers for one of two reasons:
- To fill a skill gap on their technical team
- To help them through a period of change, like when updating their electronic health record system
Currently, the second reason is the most common due to the rapid rate of technological advancement.
If technology expertise were the only requirement, any IT consultant could support a health care project. But health care organizations also have much larger concerns — complying with regulations, managing costs and, most importantly, delivering the best possible patient outcomes.
Every technical health care consulting project must not only focus on the technology itself but also on how the technology is used each day to deliver quality health care services.
Therefore, technical staffing partners provide health care organizations with more than just technical experts. Project teams may include experienced consultants who can support project design, change management and training, in addition to the required technical know-how.
Technical staffing partners may also deliver advisory services, interim leadership, health information management coding skills, audits and compliance reviews, and cybersecurity guidance to help their health care clients use technology to effectively manage and optimize patient care.
