Skilled healthcare IT talent is in short supply. Nearly 2/3 of healthcare CIOs say they are currently experiencing labor shortages. More than ½ are worried that these labor shortages will impact their organization's chance of qualifying for federal funding.

Logically then, your current employees are your best asset; and your competition agrees. The average IT professional receives 23 solicitations per week.

To deal with these labor challenge, healthcare organizations must take a new approach to workforce planning. Here are several suggestions to assist your attraction, development and retention programs:

1. Analyze your current workforce. Identify what skills you already have on staff, what skills can be learned and what skills to attract. Take into account the goals of your current initiatives as well as any future targets.
2. Encourage mutual feedback. Proactively soliciting feedback can greatly help your staff retention. Points of confusion and miscommunication can be addressed before they become serious issues.
3. Invest in your talent. Coaching and mentoring your employees at every stage of their career will improve your staff's success and engagement. Additional skill training will also provide stability and flexibility to your workforce
4. Define your positives. A clear description of your organization's key advantages will get the attention of top talent. Employees look for more than compensation --express benefits across all aspects of work life.
