The nice folks at HealthAdministrationDegrees.com recently interviewed me about my thoughts on healthcare IT and how to get jobs in the industry. The following questions came up:

  • How did you get started blogging, and what was the goal behind your blog the Healthcare IT Guy?
  • How can someone get started working in healthcare IT? How important is it to have a medical or healthcare background in addition to an IT background?
  • What would you identify as some of the biggest challenges for students entering healthcare IT today, and how can they prepare for the field?
  • What are some of the misconceptions within healthcare about the use of IT in the field?
  • How are consumer technologies like smart phones affecting healthcare IT?
  • What do you hope to see for the future of healthcare IT?

The short version of the video is available at HealthAdministrationDegrees.com but the longer versions of the answers are available on my YouTube Playlist.
