According to the findings of a survey by the Salt Lake City-based American Society of Health Informatics Managers (ASHIM), the majority of health professionals believe that between 50,000 and 200,000 new jobs will be created in health IT by 2015.

The survey, which was conducted in response to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, which indicated a national deficit of qualified health IT workers, aimed to provide an early stage snapshot of the jobs activities taking place in the industry, says ASHIM.

Results also indicate that the hiring public is most interested in health IT professionals with both healthcare industry and IT experience, and that consultants and IT application trainers will fill most new positions, followed closely by new sales and technical IT positions.
