- UMass Dartmouth students get head start on their careers
Michael Hitchins, a recruiter with an industrial supplies distributor, knows how the Business Career Fair at UMass Dartmouth can make connections that pay off for employers and students: a 2007 UMass Dartmouth graduate, he got his current job at the same event five years ago.
“We come back every year to recruit the next leaders in our company,” Hitchins said in a press release from the university. “We’ve had great success with the university and we’re looking for aggressive, ambitious people who want a career in sales.”
Karissa Bettencourt manned a table at the Fair for MEDITECH. Bettencourt is actively recruiting for paid interns and co-op students who are paid between $1,500 and $3,000 per month — both with benefits.

- Help Wanted: Integrating Physician Practices with Meditech?
Are any of you wrestling with how to integrate physician practices on disparate systems (eCW, Allscripts, Cerner, etc.) with Meditech? It seems like many hospitals are acquiring physician practices at a rapid rate. Does anyone have a good solution, especially for a hospital that has numerous practices/clinics on various EMR’s and the docs want to be able to order and result in their own system but the hospital (where the tests are performed) doesn’t want the patient to go through dual registration/Order entry? One hospital CFO says he wants it to be like Avis check in where they just jump in the car and go — he wants the patient to be able to breeze through the check in process at the hospital when he/she arrives to get the testing performed.
- Healthcare IT jobs lucrative but tough to land
Sought-after healthcare IT skills include experience with electronic health record systems from Epic, Cerner, Meditech and other vendors
Companies in the healthcare industry are willing to pay a premium for scarce IT talent, but they’re choosy about selecting new hires. For people with the right experience, it’s a great time to be job hunting.
“If you’re a solid performer and you’ve been working for a couple of years with products from Epic, Cerner, Meditech or any of the other electronic health record vendors — and especially if you’re willing to travel — the sky is kind of the limit for opportunity,” says Eric Marx, vice president of Health Care IT at staffing firm Modis. “You can pick and choose what you’d like to be doing and get paid very well for it.”
