Despite the sluggish economic recovery, the healthcare industry is adding new jobs due in large part to the effects of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Last year's data showed an increased demand for healthcare employees as a result of increased access to preventative services under ACA and NPs and PAs becoming increasing important to healthcare teams. Health Information Technology positions are also on the rise as a critical component of health reform.

Highlights

  • In 2013, more than 7,042 employers posted a total of 175,721 available jobs on HEALTHeCAREERS Network.
  • The top 10 states for healthcare jobs in 2013 as illustrated by HEALTHeCAREERS Network employer job postings were, in descending order: Texas, Florida, California, Pennsylvania, New York, Virginia, Washington, Colorado, Illinois and Tennessee.
  • Several healthcare areas experienced increases in the number of jobs posted in 2013 when compared to 2013. These included: dietetics/nutrition, physician/surgeon and administration/executive.

Tricia Pattee, Director of Product Management for HEALTHeCAREERS Network commented, "Since the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, as more patients are able to seek preventative care more readily, we're seeing shifts in demand and roles within the entire healthcare industry. It will be interesting to see how the influx of newly insured patients and preventative care focus under the ACA ultimately influences hiring in the healthcare industry in 2014."

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and Containers together help companies to achieve their business goals faster and more effectively.

The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology.

In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed this very serious issue of pro...
The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle?

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software?

In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Kevin Hazard, Director of Digital Content for SoftL...
