New Tech-based Roles in Healthcare
In addition to changing existing healthcare roles, the increased adoption of technology will create new professions that combine medical and technological expertise, such as:
Telemedicine gained widespread acceptance during the COVID-19 pandemic, and it only continues to grow. At some point, healthcare organizations may require specialists to operate their telehealth technologies, ensuring patients and providers can access virtual care easily and reliably.
Healthcare Data Analysts
As the volume of healthcare data grows, so does the need for data analysts to manage and interpret it. Leveraging data in decision-making will allow hospitals to operate more effectively and cost-efficiently, while improving patient outcomes and forging new treatments.
AI and Robotics Technicians
As these technologies are increasingly adopted, healthcare organizations will need skilled technicians to operate, maintain and upgrade them.
Healthcare data breaches are already on the rise. Cybersecurity experts are critical to safeguarding sensitive medical information—and as the digitization of healthcare records and systems increases, so will the need to protect patient data.
Technological Advances in HR and Beyond
Beyond patient care and medical innovation, technology enables healthcare organizations to streamline and improve regular business functions, such as billing, procurement, and, especially, human resources.
Advanced HR software eases the administrative burden on chronically inundated HR departments, by digitizing manual tasks, screening resumes, and automating onboarding. Technology can optimize the talent acquisition process—which, in its own way, lessens the healthcare labor shortage.
And when it comes to healthcare relocation for physicians, nurses and other care providers, technology is already revolutionizing the process, with UrbanBound leading the way.
