Healthcare IT Today: 2022 Predictions for Healthcare Employment and the Great Resignation

January 13, 2022

As we head into 2022, we asked the Healthcare IT Today community to share some predictions for the new year.  I always find it interesting to learn what people think is coming down the road.  Be sure to check out all our Health IT Predictions.

One of the surprise topics for me heading into 2022 goes to staffing.  Employment in healthcare is facing the biggest challenges it has ever faced.  This is largely true across every type of healthcare employment.  Nurses and doctors are burnt out.  Health IT staff now can work remotely which creates lots of outside pressures.  Plus, demand for highly skilled health IT professionals is at an all time high.  This and much more is reflected in the predictions below.
