COVID-19 caused healthcare systems to put many initiatives that were budgeted for 2020 – including important IT projects and hires – on hold.
As we near the end of the year, however, budgets are opening back up, and projects are being reinstated. Some IT managers have positions they must secure before the end of the year to capitalize on 2020 funding or risk forfeiting those key positions on their project teams.
Need to hire now?
At HCTec, we are recognized for our ability to quickly recruit and deploy high quality professionals with specialized healthcare IT skills.
Through our HCTec Flex model, we can help IT managers fill full- and part-time consulting, contract and contract-to-hire positions, delivering qualified candidates for review within 48 hours after the initial request is confirmed.
HCTec Flex also allows managers to cost effectively scale teams and projects up and down in whatever way works best, whether to immediately fill a gap for a short period of time or for longer-term project staffing and leadership.
In a year of unpredictable budgeting and variable contract staffing levels, many hiring managers are seeking the stability of direct placement, permanent roles for multi-year digital transformation projects and other long-term positions. But, finding the right impact player with a specialized skillset for hard-to-fill positions, while also ensuring the right culture fit can be a daunting task.
Our HCTec Direct model, which fulfills requests for specialized, long-term and permanent placements, offers a swift turnaround with a “5 in 5” guarantee – delivering five highly qualified candidates within five business days from our national network of HIT candidates, while also delivering the right culture fit for your organization.
Our deep network of HIT professionals across the country provides us access to a caliber of candidates that hiring managers do not have. Candidates are available immediately and willing to relocate for the best career opportunities. Additionally, many of our candidates are already set up for remote-work scenarios, which is a staffing request we’ve seen soar during the pandemic.
Not in a hurry?
For IT managers who don’t find themselves in so much of a pinch, this is the time of the year to look ahead and develop a strategy for staffing the department in the new year. Many are asking:
- What skillsets are we missing within our organization?
- What gaps do we need to fill?
- Where can we use more support to maintain optimum performance?
HCTec can also be a resource for health systems in the planning process.
Our HCTec Direct process starts with a consultation with our Technical SMEs who can help identify and scope roles needed within the organization. That initial intake meeting also involves outlining the process, milestones and timelines from recruitment to onboarding, which is helpful for planning opportune hiring times in the new year.
Whether you are looking to hire now or planning for the new year, reach out to us today to let us get to work helping you find the HIT talent you need.
