Health IT Staffing

Top Echelon Contracting can help you meet critical Electronic Health Record deadlines.

Health IT staffing is a priority for many healthcare providers as they move from paper patient records to Electronic Health Records (EHRs). The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act requires healthcare providers to achieve “meaningful use” of EHR systems by 2015 or receive reductions in their Medicare payments.

As you coordinate your health IT staffing, you may want to consider utilizing contractors to:

  • Quickly ramp up to meet deadlines
  • Easily reduce health IT staff post-implementation
  • Try health IT professionals before hiring full-time
  • Reduce costs – only pay for hours worked (no employer taxes, benefits contributions, etc.)
