Find solutions for your HIT hiring questions and register now for an expert webinar presented by Towers Watson and Healthcare IT Leaders. During the “Help Wanted: Solutions for the Hit Hiring Crisis” webinar, airing at 1 p.m. EDT June 5, CIOs, CMIOs, IT and EMR project personnel, hospital human resources and HIT hiring personnel will discover answers to these questions and more:

  • How can IT departments staff quickly to complete critical EMR projects?
  • What role do compensation and benefits play in recruitment and retention?
  • What short-term and long-term strategies should hospitals employ to find, hire and keep skilled IT workers?

The webinar comes on the heels of findings that 2/3 of health care employers report difficulties recruiting experienced IT workers – a number that rises to 73 percent for Epic-certified workers, according to a 2013 Towers Watson healthcare IT survey. With federal HIT incentive deadlines looming, IT departments are facing unprecedented hiring challenges.

"Solutions for the HIT Hiring Crisis" is presented by experts from Towers Watson, a leading global professional services firm, and Healthcare IT Leaders, one of the nation’s fastest-growing HIT consulting firms.

Speakers include Heidi J. Toppel, Consulting Director for Towers Watson, and Brad Elster, Principal for Healthcare IT Leaders. Toppel is a leading national expert on employee benefits and executive compensation for the hospital and health care industry. She holds a B.S. in Economics from the Wharton School, and a J.D. degree from Seton Hall Law School (cum laude). Elster is a 15-year veteran of enterprise IT staffing and professional services. Prior to joining HIT Leaders, he was President of B2BWorkforce, the US IT recruitment arm of Randstad, a $22 billion global provider of HR services.
