Don’t assume you need to be a physician or nurse to enter the healthcare technology field. Non-clinical staff members are essential to the workforce, as they make up the majority of the healthcare system and don’t require a medical degree.1

With $3.1 billion invested in digital health ventures in just the first quarter of 2020, health tech is flush with opportunity for those who have the skills to fill new roles.2 Eighty percent of consumers are willing to wear smart devices that measure their health data.3 This leads to a massive influx of new patient-generated data that the medical field needs to learn to utilize efficiently. This gap between the knowledge medical professionals have and the knowledge they need has created a demand for individuals with specific health technology skills and the ability to meet the continuously evolving requirements of healthcare staff.
