International Hiring Trends in Healthcare for 2022

Growing Opportunities for Home Healthcare

The industry of home healthcare is booming. In 2021, the value of the global home healthcare market was USD 320.6 billion. It is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.9% from 2022 to 2030.

Disruptive Healthcare Technology

Technology plays a vital role in the evolution of healthcare. Health systems are investing proactively in increased automation, robust cybersecurity measures, and data migration to the cloud. Apart from advancements in technology for streamlining administrative duties, healthcare businesses are implementing machine learning and artificial intelligence to improve patient facilities. The internet of things is spearheading the development of tech-enabled pills that offer valuable patient information to the providers and ensure proper consumption of medication by the patients.

Evolution of Precision Medicine

Precision medicine is an innovative approach aimed at optimizing therapeutic benefit or efficiency for certain groups of patients after considering the differences in people’s lifestyles, environment, and genes. The study of the human genome is expanding with more understanding of its impact on health. As the study advances, the demand for expertise in healthcare will grow. According to a report by Coherent Marketing Insights, the global precision medicine market is expected to value at USD 114,891 million by 2028. As a result, jobs for bioinformaticians, genetic scientists, researchers, counselors, and geneticists with in-depth knowledge and understanding of genomics and its related subjects are on the rise.

A Shift toward Preventive Care

The focus of the healthcare industry is shifting from hospitalization towards preventive care. Health systems and organizations are taking initiatives to educate the population and provide the necessary tools that help in improving health and preventing certain diseases.

Temporary Staffing Solutions

Another healthcare trend prevailing in 2022 is hiring practitioners for specific projects on a need basis. The sudden rise in COVID-19 related emergencies has made CEOs realize the benefit of contract-based staffing. When companies indulge in temporary staffing, they have access to a larger candidate pool. By staffing personnel temporarily, companies can fill positions based on specific expertise or skills that do not currently exist in the team.

Medical Careers with Lucrative Opportunities

Throughout 2020 and 2021, the demand for healthcare jobs rose significantly. According to a report by the World Health Organization (WHO), by 2030, an additional 9 million midwives and nurses are required for all countries to reach Sustainable Development Goal (SDG). The goal is one of the 17 SDGs established by the United Nations and aims at ensuring healthy lives and promoting the well-being of all.

Here is a list of some of the medical careers growing in popularity and offering lucrative opportunities:

The Bottom Line

The pressure the pandemic put on healthcare facilities and the rising demand for medical professionals has made it even more essential for organizations to improve hiring processes and employee retention rates. Businesses must critically evaluate employee benefits, workplace culture, and company offerings to identify key areas of improvement. Understanding the hiring trends with a focus on both candidate and current staff needs will make it easier for medical facilities to stay competitive in this difficult market.
