Hanover, Md. – February 11, 2013 – TEKsystems®, a leading provider of IT staffing solutions, IT talent management expertise and IT services, today announced that it will be hosting a joint presentation with CareerBuilder on Monday, March 4 at the HIMSS13 Annual Conference in New Orleans. The presentation will explore ways in which organizations can address healthcare IT (HIT) labor shortages by implementing workforce planning and new talent management practices effectively.

“HIT initiatives are only as strong as the people behind them. Trends such as consumerism, ICD 10, legacy modernization and meaningful use will only continue to drive up the demand for talented healthcare IT workers as technology advances and deadlines loom,” said Allen Kriete, vice president, healthcare services at TEKsystems. “With two-thirds of U.S. healthcare CIOs saying that they are experiencing labor shortages, organizations must address hiring challenges in a way that ensures that the best possible people are being recruited and retained to drive initiatives forward effectively and on time.”

What:    Allen Kriete and Sanja Licina, senior director, talent intelligence and consulting at CareerBuilder will present a session entitled “Addressing HIT Worker Shortages through Operational Excellence in Workforce Planning” at HIMSS13.

Session Overview:    This presentation will discuss the landscapes surrounding the HIT labor shortage in order to help organizations understand and implement fundamental strategies to attract, develop and retain the best available HIT professionals.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Analyze HIT labor data to evaluate current HIT labor market trends
  • Evaluate best practices around HIT talent attraction, development and retention strategies
  • Compare business outcomes of implementing effective versus ineffective workforce planning strategies
  • Diagnose and prescribe operational effectiveness strategies and key performance indicators around an effective workforce strategy
  • Analyze a client’s processes for developing and implementing new talent management practices

Where:    The HIMSS13 conference will be held on March 3-7, 2013 in Room 391 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.
