Surrex Consulting Launches Healthcare IT and Electronic Health Records (EHR) Consulting and Staffing Division

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - January 19, 2010) - Surrex Consulting, a nationwide provider of Information Technology (IT) Staffing and Consulting Services, today announced the launch of a new division created to service the Healthcare IT and Electronic Health Records (EHR) market. The company, which has 15 offices nationwide, plans to leverage their experience in IT Consulting and Staffing and focus their resources on delivering to the primary users of EHR and Healthcare IT technology -- hospitals and hospital groups.

The move, timed to coincide with the rollout of government initiatives such as the HITECH act and updated HIPAA regulations, allows the company to provide value and service to a market that faces rapidly increasing demand for talent and a progressively expanding talent shortage.

"We have seen studies that predict talent shortages in the Healthcare IT market that approach 30% over the next 5 years," says Surrex EHR Strategist Michael Junge. "If the effort to improve healthcare in the United States is to succeed it is imperative that individuals and companies with the experience and capacity to deliver positive results step up and focus their skills on serving this vital marketplace. We have to find ways to effectively leverage our existing talent and resources to ensure the success of healthcare IT initiatives."

Electronic Health Records (EHR) technology represents a rapidly expanding segment of the Healthcare IT market. EHR solutions are designed to streamline the gathering and maintenance of patient information, simplify information sharing, and improve overall patient care and safety. They are also part of government mandates related to the HITECH Act of 2009, and will dramatically impact the future of all hospitals and healthcare providers in the United States.

"We recognize the absolute necessity for effective EHR implementation and integration projects over the coming months and years," says Surrex CEO Joseph A. Gendron. "These projects depend on identifying and delivering quality solutions and qualified talent. Surrex Consulting is uniquely positioned to provide both, and we look forward to the opportunity to serve this marketplace with all of the skill and talent at our disposal."
