The MedZilla Employment Report for December 2011 — Healthcare IT Creates Abundant Opportunities for Job Seekers

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) December 08, 2011

In spite of reports from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) of another exciting decrease in unemployment, naysayers continue to cast a doubtful eye on the U.S. economic recovery. Many have dismissed the report stating that the more than half a million new jobs created in the last month were a result of a temporary rise in seasonal hiring, or suggested that the figures had not taken into account discouraged job-seekers no longer considered a part of the labor pool. Despite concerns that the current drop in unemployment is temporary, the long-term numbers suggest that recent employment statistics can be safely attributed to an overall recovery pattern.

Close examination of the figures from last month reveal that this positive growth has been months in the making. There are specific industries outside of retail and hospitality that have seen a continuous rise in employment opportunities. The number of available healthcare and related industry positions rose significantly once again in November, with 17,000 new jobs produced in the medical field alone. These developments have resulted in an average of 27,000 new jobs being added every month, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (, 12/2/2011).

“The statistics over the past few months have been more than encouraging. They are a real light at the end of the tunnel. Various industries are beginning to regroup; making adjustments to fit an evolving market. That’s not inconsistent with what we know to happen historically after major structural shifts in the economy. What we’re seeing, and what we hope we’ll continue to see, are new employment markets opening up where these new industries are being formed. Health IT is a perfect example of this. Here you have two, previously separate industries that are rapidly growing into one another. Where the two meet you have an opportunity to explore a completely new labor pool,? says Del Johnston, Manager of Client Relations at, a leader in healthcare, pharmaceutical, and biotech employment information on the internet.

Late last month White House officials confirmed the creation of specific interventions which would assist professionals in implementing health IT throughout the nation’s medical facilities; improving health care and creating new jobs across the country. More than 50,000 healthcare IT-related jobs have been created since the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH Act) went into effect. BLS reports indicate that the number of health IT jobs is expected to rise by twenty percent between 2008 and 2018; an increase which will exceed the average for all occupations through 2018.

This has already had a profound impact on employment in the health sector. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius released findings at the end of last month which confirmed that physicians’ adoption of health information technology (HIT) doubled in just the past two years. (, 11/30/2011)

“When doctors and hospitals use health information technology (health IT), patients get better care and we can all save money. This results in less paperwork for billing, medical records, and prescribing; easier coordination of care among doctors, nurses, and pharmacists in hospitals and outpatient settings; and better reporting on quality of care,? said Nancy-Ann DeParle, Assistant to the President and Deputy White House Chief of Staff (, 11/30/2011)

Sebelius also stated the HHS’s intent to ease the transition for medical personnel to the new EMR/EHR requirements. Previously, facilities opting into the Medical EHR Incentive Programs before the end of 2011 would face penalties if certain compliance criteria are not met by 2013. Those postponing participation until 2012 would be able to delay meeting those requirements until 2014, while maintaining their eligibility for the incentive payments. However, to speed the implementation, HHS announced that they are now allowing participants to receive program incentives for adopting the program this year, while extending compliance deadlines to 2014.

The strategy for implementation also contain targeted outreach efforts intended to educate physicians and staff in more effective uses of EMR systems. This effort includes providing information regarding medical devices, products and software specifically targeted toward creating efficient and user friendly EMR systems. (, 11/30/2011)

Many large companies which previously held no close affiliations with the medical field have begun expanding their business models to include HIT-specific devices and software packages. Accenture and AT&T just announced collaboration on a new medical imaging solution which officials from both companies say will assist health facilities in accessing and sharing medical images in order for physicians to collaborate more efficiently.

The presentation was officially made late last month at the Radiological Society of North America’s annual meeting in Chicago. Representatives revealed the new technology which experts attest will provide medical professionals with the ability to electronically share, review and store medical images, such as X-rays and CT or MRI scans with significantly increased speed and quality.

Derek Danois, who leads medical imaging for Accenture Health, had this to say regarding the announcement, “Access to an accurate, cost-effective diagnosis will significantly improve all aspects of health delivery. Healthcare IT is an integral link in connecting clinical decisions and enabling an insight driven healthcare system.? (, 11/28/2011)

According to Guillermo Moreno, vice president of the recruiting firm Experis Healthcare, skills and experience in EMR and EHR implementation, applications, Information Security, data management, as well as Business Intelligence and analytics abilities are going to be the hot commodities in 2012. (, 11/28/2011)

The Obama Administration has announced several workforce development and educational incentive programs in order to meet the increasing demand for skilled workers in these areas. Training programs are now available in nine universities and 82 community colleges across the nation. The programs can already boast almost 6,000 graduates as of October, and over 10,000 more students are currently enrolled in programs from the Associate level through post-graduate and Master’s level degrees. (, 11/30/2011)

“There are a lot of qualified people out there, and the gap they have is that most CIOs in hospitals are looking for clinical backgrounds that understand what medical jargon is. There’s a premium on security folks and on folks that can take large amounts of information and get some value out of it, so business intelligence and data warehousing are significant. Hourly rates and salaries are going through the roof, and most candidates have multiple offers at the time that hospitals are trying to land them,” says Eric Marx, vice president of Health Care IT for Modis, an IT staffing subsidiary of Adecco Group. (, 11/08/2011)

In other news, saw the stepping down of one of its finest innovators in the field of Online Employment. The CEO and Founder, Dr. Frank Heasley announced his resignation early in November due to health reasons. While he will continue as Chairman of the Board, he plans to shift his main focus to his continued efforts supporting those who suffer from multiple myeloma, a condition he has battled since 2007. Heasley believes this transition will bring in new minds and fresh ideas to the company. (, 11-03-2011)

His successor, John Burkhardt, has been working closely with him for the past eight years and is sad to see his mentor go. “It’s difficult to see someone you admire step down. However, I am honored and excited to be taking on this new role within the company. He has provided excellent leadership these past years and real insight into the field; I hope to do justice to his efforts by continuing to improve and expand our relationships with clients and job-seekers.?

The entire staff at wishes Dr. Heasley continued health and offers him their immense gratitude for his years of management and guidance.

Abelard Construction Creates Hundreds of New Jobs in the Greater Chicago Area

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 12, 2011

Abelard Construction, a local, Illinois licensed general contractor and roofing company since 2003, was in the process of restructuring it’s Lincolnwood office a few months ago when disaster struck. On June 30th, 2011, a catastrophic wind storm, with golf ball sized hail struck the Chicagoland area affecting over 250,000 properties. Abelard quickly seized the moment and opened a new office near Bucktown, at 2041 West Grand Avenue. Immediately, Abelard opened hundreds of positions, such as; salespeople, inspectors, estimators, project managers, and other key office staff to service the property owners in this twenty-five mile by three mile storm path.

“We have already created over 100 new jobs in the last 3 months, and are actively pursuing to hire hundreds more,? says Anthony Delmedico, CEO of Abelard Construction. ?We are in the process of immediately hiring at our new office near Bucktown. You would be surprised at how many property owners are still unaware of hail damage to their roof and the insurance claim process.?

Natural disaster claims, also referred to as “act of god claims” such as hail, wind, and other similar causes are usually non-chargeable claims. This meaning the insurance company does not raise rates or drop any of their customers for filing this type of claim. Typically property owners have one year from date of loss to get their roofs inspected and file an insurance claim. It is very important to do this before the coming winter months.

Almost all roof manufacturer and installer warranties are void after hailstorms of this magnitude, hence the importance of getting your roof inspected and filing a claim if any hail damage is found.

Abelard Construction offers a free 10 point roof and property inspection, and even provides photos of the storm damage for property owners to present to their insurance company. Abelard staff meets the insurance adjuster at the property to review storm damage as well as perform and coordinate all necessary repairs and bill the insurance company for the work.

Currently, Abelard Construction is seeking to hire hundreds of salespeople, inspectors, estimators, telemarketers, and also hiring many quality crewmen and laborers who are skilled at roofing, siding, gutters and other exterior building repairs.

About Abelard Construction

Abelard Construction is a full service general contractor, specializing in residential roofing emergencies, and water and fire damage restoration, with operations in six states. Their Chicago office is located at 2041 West Grand Avenue and can be reached at 888-260-ROOF (7663) or 312-563-0333 to schedule free roof inspections for Chicago property owners.

JRS Architect, P.C.’s Unique Design Creates Brand Image for Madison National Bank

Mineola, NY (PRWEB) April 9, 2007

A unique architectural design serves as a cornerstone to the brand image of the new Madison National Bank.

The new bank building is the creation of JRS Architect. P.C., one of the nation’s leading bank architectural and design firms. The design was based upon Madison National Bank’s vision to have their bank reflect a warm and inviting environment.

The almost 3,700-square foot branch with its towering brick chimney, high sloping roof and turreted vestibule stands out from current landscape of businesses along Merrick Road, the busy main street of this Long Island South Shore community.

Conceived to be distinctively unique, the new Madison National branch is based on American revival architecture of the mid to late 19th Century, a style called Richardson Romanesque and named after architect Henry Hobson Richardson, whose masterpiece is Trinity Church in Boston.

Richardson’s style is characterized by massive stone walls and dramatic semicircular arches over windows and entranceways, rounded towers with conical roofs whose counterpoint resides in the dynamism of interior space.

“The bank’s founders wanted something that was different, eye catching and reminiscent of old world design, coupled with the benefits of the latest building technology and products”, said the architect, John R. Sorrenti, F.A.I.A., President of JRS.

“JRS did an exquisite job in executing the concept that we envisioned,” said Daniel L. Murphy, Founder, Director, Chairman and CEO of Madison National Bank, a highly recognized and respected executive in the banking industry.

The interior is equally as unique as the exterior. “We designed it so that upon entering, the customer is engulfed in an open, inviting and warm space. This pleasing atmosphere has been achieved by use of a burning fireplace, a magnificent cathedral ceiling supported by Queen Ann trusses, wrought iron bronze chandeliers and red and gold floral carpeting and upholstered chairs. Silk-screened floral prints on gold mesh decorate the interior walls” said JRS interior designer, Marie McDonald.

“It’s relaxed and inviting. It’s very rich and textured,” said Mr. Sorrenti. “We made it comfortable and warm.”

Michael Puorro, also a Founder, Director and President of Madison National Bank, said, “We have achieved our initial goal of combining brand, image and state of the art financial processing systems to service the entire gamut of retail and lending customers.”

Though its look is reminiscent of another time, the bank was constructed using modern materials and techniques. “With demanding schedules and today’s construction budgets and new materials, many of the details and time consuming methods used to create this style during it’s time had to be made more simple and efficient,” said Ray Maggiore, Design Manager at JRS.

The JRS design utilizes rubber tiles to simulate slate roofing and exterior insulating finishing systems were used to simulate a heavy stone base, limestone face block construction and trims. The chimney, however, was constructed in real face brick and was designed both to fit to the building’s scale and to provide identification for the new start up bank.

Whimsical walkways and street lights that recall the gaslight era embellish the bank’s landscaping.

Bonnie Seider, Madison’s Director of Capital Markets, who also directs the bank’s marketing programs, said that she has received much unsolicited feedback from community residents and business people about the design and its positive impact on the local landscape. Ms. Seider also remarked that the genesis of the Madison brand coupled with ready recognition was imperative prior to the bank’s opening. Ms. Seider said that a second branch already is under construction on Route 110 in Melville and that an aggressive branch construction plan has been established.

Over the course of more than 20 years, JRS has designed about 3,000 projects, including banks throughout Long Island, New York City, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut as well as in Florida. JRS’ roster of bank industry clients is a veritable Who’s Who of Banking and includes Bethpage Federal Credit Union, Citicorp, Hudson City Savings Bank, JP Morgan Chase, New York Community Bank, North Fork Bank, Peapack-Gladstone Bank and Wachovia Bank NA.

JRS Architect, P.C., with offices in Mineola, NY, New York City, and Princeton, NJ, has grown from six people since its establishment in 1986 to more than 60 today serving New York, Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. It has developed design expertise in the corporate, financial, healthcare, educational, hospitality and retail markets. The firm has ranked within Interior Design Magazine’s list of 100 Giants in the nation for the last three years. For more information about JRS Architect, P.C. call (516) 294-1666 or visit

RoofRay Creates Largest Database of Solar-Optimal Properties

Walnut Creek, CA (PRWEB) September 2, 2009

RoofRay, the leader in online solar modeling and estimating, now has the largest database of solar optimal properties available, exceeding over five-hundred-million square feet of human-analyzed and modeled solar arrays. The size and type of arrays range from small arrays on homes to very large applications on everything from convention centers and big box stores to amusement parks and schools.

Based on RoofRay’s patent pending solar modeling engine, if all of the drawn arrays were actually installed the total power output would yield over eight-billion kilowatt hours of electricity per year. What does the carbon offset of eight-billion kilowatt hours of electricity look like? That is equivalent to:

4.9 Million Metric Tons of CO2
Manufacturing 41 Million smart phones
87 Billion lattes
29 Billion cans of Coke

Orlando Web Design Firm Two Think LLC Creates Lead-Tracking Website for The Point Orlando

Orlando, FL (PRWEB) August 26, 2009

Orlando website design firm Two Think, LLC announces the launch of the new website for The Point Orlando, a luxury boutique style resort that sells vacation homes. The site uses multiple lead-tracking systems to help quantify and improve the resort’s Internet marketing activities. With the additional tracking features, Two Think gave The Point Orlando the ability better analyze the return on their pay per click (PPC) advertising investment.

“With the current economy, Internet marketing is one of the best investments a business can make,” says Christian Franqui, vice president and creative director of Two Think. “However, systems need to be set up so businesses can analyze the results of their Internet marketing activities. That way they have a clear picture of exactly how much greater their sales are when they have a well-designed digital plan.”

In order to create a website that achieves their client’s marketing goals, Two Think used all of its considerable talent to upgrade The Point Orlando’s Internet marketing strategy. Unlike other web design firms that merely use programmers to work on projects, Two Think’s team includes marketing experts and business strategists.

“Our client has a somewhat unique need. They use their website to sell their product, but a vacation home isn’t something you can put in a traditional Internet shopping cart,” says Franqui. “There was always a Contact Us page on their site, but they had no means of identifying buyers who phoned because of the website or because of another advertising vehicle.”

To solve the tracking problem, Two Think added a dedicated prospect-tracking telephone number to the site. With this system, the organization can measure the number of prospects who call the resort based on the website. The system provides information analysts use to determine what percent of callers turn into sold customers. This gives the resort the ability to truly measure the return on their Internet marketing investment.

While detailed prospect tracking was a considerable need in the new site, so was world-class design. In addition to being a premier web design firm, Two Think is also a well-known Orlando graphic design firm. Their graphic designers worked closely with their site developers to create a website that has stunning visuals and global appeal. “The Point Orlando attracts an international clientele,” says Franqui. “The new site needed to address the needs and desires of a global community. We did this by using stunning photographs, clean design and easy navigation.”
