Many U.S. healthcare companies – about 67% — report that they’re struggling to attract experienced information technology workers, according to a survey.
That’s compared with 10% that said they have problems attracting all workers, according to the “Towers Watson 2013 Healthcare IT Survey” (PDF). Meanwhile, 38% of healthcare companies reported problems with retaining experienced IT workers, compared with 8% reporting problems retaining all types of workers.
