Advances in technology have introduced many benefits to the world of medicine. Unfortunately, the growing prevalence of technology in the healthcare industry has also created more opportunities for cybersecurity threats. Hospitals and other healthcare facilities who fail to take precautions are extremely vulnerable to cyberattacks that disclose confidential patient information.
CLEVELAND, Feb. 20, 2019 -- RecruitIQ Staffing, a Cleveland based IT staffing company, announced today they are changing their name to GHR Technology. Along with a complete rebranding, the move is meant to provide a more immediate understanding of the company's emphasis while better aligning with their parent company structure to form a comprehensive healthcare staffing company with divisions focused on clinical, allied, professional, and IT.
GHR Technology provides a wide variety of IT staff, primarily to healthcare focused organizations across the country through contingent, contract and direct hire services. Since acquiring GHR in 2017, the collaboration and synergies between the two organizations has been tremendous. Coming together under one name will unlock even more opportunities to serve healthcare organizations and partner with health systems in recruiting and staffing.
A member of the GHR Healthcare family of companies, the new name and branding accomplishes several business goals. "We're very excited about the name change," said Tony Caponi, Division Vice President of GHR Technology. "First, it makes a definitive statement about our dedication and focus to the IT market. At the same time, it aligns us with the other companies in the GHR Healthcare family, helping clients better understand the complete range of staffing support we can provide."
GHR Technology places qualified IT personnel across four main IT segments; Clinical and Business Applications, Data Analytics and Insight, IT Infrastructure and Cloud Enablement, and Executive Recruiting Services. Under the experienced leadership of Mr. Caponi, a ten-year veteran in IT Healthcare staffing, the company has seen tremendous growth since he joined.
"We are so proud of Tony and the progress we've enjoyed over the past four years," said Janet Elkin, President and CEO of GHR Healthcare. "Technology plays such an important role today in patient outcomes and affordable care. Providing IT personnel is our way of contributing to the quality of care delivered."
The scope and impact of technology continues to expand within healthcare. From cutting-edge technology for diagnosis and treatment of disease, to the collection and documentation of electronic records, technology is now a cornerstone of the industry.
"The importance of having the right technology personnel is quickly becoming as important for healthcare facilities as having the right clinical care staff. We're honored to help our clients meet these critical needs."

According to the HCAHPS Executive Insight, more than 30,000 patients are surveyed every day about their recent hospital experience. And, every day, more than 8,400 patients complete the HCAHPS survey. Based in part on the outcomes of those surveys, hospitals can lose or gain up to 2% of their CMS reimbursements.
In an already brutal budgeting environment, hospital leaders are going to be faced with a herculean task come December 1, 2016 when the new Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) overtime rules go into effect: continue to improve the quality of care and drive positive patient experiences while accounting for the pressure of increased personnel costs on their facility operating expenses.
