October 25, 2010 – Hudson IT has launched a new healthcare information technology (HIT) practice, with an emphasis on staffing mid-to-senior level healthcare roles. The practice is led by Evan Keene, vice president of consulting services, and includes a recruiting team with more than 20 years of combined experience in healthcare IT, recruiting and consulting. Services are provided locally in the Chicago area, as well as any of Hudson's U.S.-based offices including: Baltimore, Boston, Dallas, Denver, Minneapolis, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Raleigh and Tampa. “With the recent changes in healthcare compliance, the need for highly-skilled and multi-disciplined HIT professionals has never been greater,” said Mr. Keene. “Hudson's team of expert healthcare recruiters can quickly identify top talent ranging from project managers and HIT software specialists to programmers and security risk analysts resulting in value and time savings for organizations looking to augment their staff and ramp up quickly for critical EMR initiatives.” Hudson's HIT practice also provides staffing, recruiting and project management services for projects such as HIPAA compliance, patient accounting and hospital billing, facilities management, IT strategy, systems integration and applications management and implementation.
