Are you stressed? If you work in healthcare IT jobs, your answer is likely a resounding, yes!
The recent HealthITJobs.com Stress Survey asked this question and more in order to explore the amount of stress in health IT jobs, as well as the factors that impact stress levels.
Health IT jobs are stressful, no doubt, but the survey suggests stress has more to do with individual circumstances than job titles. Factors such as time spent in meetings, hours worked per week, and whether or not an individual manages other people are all factors in determining how likely health IT professionals are to say they are stressed. Even factors such as how frequently they exercise and how much energy they have may be related to stress levels.
While the health IT professionals who report the most stress have some things in common, stress levels largely depend on the individual.
Inside the Report:
- How stressful is healthcare IT?
- Which health IT jobs are the most stressful?
- What causes stress in health IT jobs?
- How does lifestyle impact stress?
