32,000 new digital health jobs by 2020: The digital health sector creating strong demand for talent

By 19 July 2015 No Comments

Innovations in information and communications technologies (ICTs) have heightened the way Canadians experience healthcare. With the growth of digital health solutions, companies in the ICT sector have been at the forefront of development. Upscaling technologies and adoption of digital health solutions have led to numerous economic opportunities, including the creation of employment, improved productivity, cost reductions, revenue generation, and increase in collaborative innovation.

The Information and Communications Technology Council (ICTC) is proud to be one of the first organizations to explore and define the nature and impact of Canada’s health ICT sector. With funding provided by Canada Health Infoway, ICTC’s findings illustrate that Canada’s health ICT sector is strong and growing in all key economic measures.

What ICTC has found through this report is that the Canadian domestic health ICT sector is strong and growing in all critical measures of economic stimulus including exports, employment and innovation. And importantly, this report sets the stage for further investigation to explore the economic impacts of digital health investments generated by all partners involved in Canada’s health ICT sector, including Canadian companies and those with a global presence.”

These innovations are exciting and crucial to the development of Canada’s health ICT sector. This report alone states that by the year 2020, more than 32,000 jobs are expected to be created in this sector. The Information and Communications Technology Council (ICTC) is pleased to have the opportunity to dive deeper into digital health solutions
