GIG Search Group Focuses on Healthcare IT Recruitment

(Houston, TX) – The healthcare IT sector is experiencing unprecedented growth, with increasing emphasis on platforms such as electronic health records and big data analytics to improve efficiency and patient care.  To support this need, GIG Search Group recently launched to help healthcare providers find qualified professionals to enhance their ability to access comprehensive information. Managing Director of the new firm is Trevor Smith, who has extensive experience as a software process analyst and an ERP and EHR trainer. GIG Search Group is an affiliate of MRINetwork®, one of the largest executive search and recruitment organizations in the world. 

“Mr. Smith has a proven track record in the healthcare IT sector,” says John McDonald, president of MRINetwork. “His extensive experience and critical eye for talent ensure that he will be a great asset both to our organization and to his clients and candidates.”

“The future direction of the industry will see an increasingly competitive need for top application analysts and specialists who design systems to contain and share information from all providers involved in patient care,” says Smith. “These people ultimately influence the ability to diagnose diseases and improve patient outcomes.” 

Smith currently serves as an instructor on the structure and design of electronic health records at the University of Phoenix. Prior to launching his search practice, he was responsible for developing and delivering electronic health records training for all super users and end user groups at Catholic Health Initiatives in Denver. 

“Significant progress is being made in the availability of data for advanced analytics that support the development of new care delivery models,” notes Smith. “These advances promise to transform primary care delivery networks and are accelerating the competition for skilled healthcare IT professionals.”
