A national association of healthcare executives reports that a shortage of information technology professionals could set back electronic health records projects.

The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) conducted a survey of healthcare IT executives that showed that 51 percent of respondents said IT staffing deficiencies could “possibly” impact their ability to implement electronic health records, and thus receive funding from the federal stimulus bill. Another 10 percent of healthcare CIOs said such an IT staffing issue would “definitely” impact their programs.
