Health Executives often want to know what staffing composition is required to run a modern health service. With this in mind, we have worked with several clients recently to review their ICT staffing requirements to support their service delivery goals. This work included undertaking a detailed inventory of all the existing ICT staff, including their capabilities as well as qualifications, length of service and so on. Via surveys and direct interviews we sought to understand how well the current ICT staffing met the needs of the wider organisation. We now have a substantial database of positions and numbers of staff in similar organisations across Australia, enabling clients to compare themselves against other similar organisations.
As part of this work, we analysed upcoming and future requirements based on the organisation’s strategic plans and on current trends in healthcare ICT. More specifically, it was clear that each of these organisations would need to invest significantly more resources in supporting their clinical systems, and need to have a strategy for attracting and retaining the appropriate staffing mix.
