The Employment Report for February, 2013: Health Care Sector Stimulates Job Growth Throughout the Recession

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) February 12, 2013

The economy appears to be in a calming trend. Some financial experts are giving the credit, at least in part, to the nation’s Health Care sector. According to the National Journal, new jobs have increasingly continued to pour out from the Health Care Industry since the recession began in 2007. The journal also mentioned of a recent study released by the American Hospital Association examining the contribution of the Nation’s hospitals in a 2011 report.

Even back in 2011, hospitals by themselves were supporting more than 10 million jobs as well as creating over 2 trillion dollars in economic activity annually. The number of jobs in hospitals as well as other areas of Health Care have and are only expected to continue to grow steadily as the number of people added to the Health Care system increases. (, 2/1/2013) While the integration of Healthcare Information Systems into the existing framework at present may seem like questionable timing, it is a vital imperative in order to incorporate as many patients.

The ageing population and the addition of the previously uninsured to the medical system is creating such a significant rise in demand for health care services that it is requiring a massive shift in the country’s resources to be allocated toward the medical field and its related industries. It is a much bigger issue that can no longer be put off as a single industry concern.

Del Johnston, Manager of Client Relations at cautions, “It is important not to underestimate the impact Health Care IT can have on our Financial Sector. I think for many people this may come out of nowhere, and yet, it is really staring them in the face. It is almost as if people assume that the Health Care Industry integrated IT systems and Electronic Record Keeping back in the 90’s when many of the industries were going through their IT boom. That just wasn’t the case. The amount of redundancy and waste caused by paper systems is almost overwhelming to consider; the scheduling issues, the communication problems, the security and HIPAA problems. The good news is that we’re just seeing the beginning of the solutions that can be provided, also.”

The Affordable Care Act is only one stepping stone which addresses the continuity of care for providing a regulatory safety net across the country for an industry which has outgrown its financial roots. However, it also puts into place those technologies for information systems and electronic record keeping which would lower costs, reduce redundancies, and allow for greater oversight and access by the patients themselves, in order to reduce confusion over treatments and errors. For the physicians, the more involved a patient feels they are their treatment, the more likely they are to actually follow the prescribed treatment, which is an obvious benefit to both parties.

These technologies do take time to implement and are still coming in small steps before everyone will have complete access and feel the full benefit. However, the other side of the coin is that they require qualified personnel to implement them, as well as train the existing medical personnel in their use. The number of these HIT and new Health positions created may seem like a boon to the unemployment rate on the surface.

“Unfortunately, the wall that many employers as swelling as many job seekers are linear into is; here is this new field which has opened up and it requires two skillsets which previously did not necessarily need to go together. It’s difficult to go to an entire industry and tell them, this is not a drill; you need to know this in order to get a job now. However, the light at the end of the tunnel is that these changes, given the opportunity, will make your jobs easier, less stressful, more efficient and create more of them in the long run,” says John Burkhardt Managing Director of is one of the most notable and indispensable resources for accessing and finding healthcare, pharmaceutical, and bio-tech employment information on the internet.

CareOne Demonstrates Care at Awards Ceremony

Columbia, MD (PRWEB) September 26, 2012

Inviting customers to CareOne headquarters is not new. CareOne has always focused on improving operations and servicing with the help of customer feedback. States Bernie Dancel, founder of CareOne, Our customers become more than customers, they are part of our family. Our services get our customers out of debt, but with that service is our commitment of support to ensure our customers meet their goals. We invest equally in their success and as a result, the relationship is much more than a transaction.

CareOne has a corporate culture that emphasizes customer appreciation, empathy and support. The celebration of CareOne employees who exemplify these qualities was enhanced by the presence of their customers. Circle of Excellence winner Chris Klunk describes the recent event, Hearing firsthand how we have helped these people, how we supported them and did not judge them when they needed it most; well there is no greater thanks than that.

That sentiment is shared by CareOne customer, Travis Pizel, who attended the event, As I reflect upon the experience, it finally came to me what makes CareOne so special. It’s not the programs they have; there are other debt relief companies that have similar programs. It’s not the leading edge technology or the processes they have in place, although they certainly are tops in the industry at that as well. What makes CareOne special are the people that work there. Employees with big hearts and immeasurable passion for helping people get out of debt, educate them for the future, and improve the quality of their lives. An organization is a top down representation of their leaders, and it was obvious from the discussions during my recent visit, that the employees of CareOne are a mirror image of their executive management team.

Travis is one of three customers that gave up their time to be a part of the special day for CareOne employees. Joining Travis were Katie Lupo, and Monica Davis who were anxious to meet the people who have helped change their lives. These three customers were friends before they met face to face, having regularly engaged in the CareOne Community.

Monica is very well known in the community forums, Travis in the forums and blogs and Katie began blogging about her debt management plan just a few months after she enrolled. The CareOne community of over 1 million individuals is what helped seal the deal for these customers and has contributed to their overall success on the plans. Monica Davis left the following comment on a recent blog about the company event; The experience was a very moving one for me. It showed me just how dedicated this company is to helping people like us fight to become debt free! I can’t believe how dedicated and caring the people I met that day really are!

The CareOne community offers a place to ask and have questions answered about the plans, personal finance advice, and even how to handle the emotional toll of debt. The community is a place where anyone looking for financial guidance and support can come and talks with others, download free resources, read blogs with advice on everything from saving money on your pets to opening a 401K.

CareOne providers represent the nations largest brand of debt relief services with over 5 million people helped to date. CareOne founder, Bernie Dancel, and many CareOne employees know what being in debt is like and are proud to offer a second chance to those struggling with debt. It is this foundation of shared experience that sets CareOne apart from the rest of the debt relief industry. CareOne knows what being in debt feels like, and more importantly, what it takes to get out. Visit CareOne at for more information about the company and services.
