A hiring spree is under way to employ health informaticists who have both clinical and technical skills, U.S. health information technology experts said.

Officials of the PwC US Health Information Technology practice said during the annual conference of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society said that health organizations plan to increase informatics — medical records and health information technicians — staffing levels over the next two years, with particular emphasis on people to help with the technical aspects of electronic health records implementation, and data integration. 

Later this month, PwC’s Health Research Institute is scheduled to publish a comprehensive report on the state of clinical informatics in the health industry. In developing the report, PwC’s Health Research Institute conducted a survey of 600 health organization professionals from hospitals, health systems, health insurers and pharmaceutical and life sciences companies.
