Men and Women Paid Differently
Unfortunately for women in the field, the gender pay gap is very much a problem in health IT.
Men in health IT make a significant amount more than women. The average salary for a male worker is $99,566.68, while for women it’s $82,036.39 -- a difference of nearly $17,000 per year. The data doesn’t present reasons for this gender pay gap, but it’s certainly something the industry as a whole should consider.
