This will prove to be the best recruitment resource for the healthcare industry.

Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) August 27, 2014

AAPC (http://www.aapc.com), the leader in advancing the business of healthcare, is pleased to announce the Beta release of CareerHealth.com, a ground-breaking online recruitment resource specifically designed for the healthcare industry.

Healthcare recruitment and hiring is undergoing significant changes. To help address the primary challenges facing the industry—unqualified applicants, an aging workforce, and tighter budgets—AAPC launched CareerHealth.com.

CareerHealth.com offers hundreds of thousands of healthcare job postings for all healthcare professions. The free beta version enables healthcare professionals to more easily search the breadth of postings in a highly competitive market and permits employers to access a single-source recruiting tool for the whole industry. The site aggregates listings from AAPC Jobs and category-specific listings from other career-oriented websites using easier, more intuitive access and organization.

“Applicants can find relief from surfing dozens of job sites and individual employer human resource pages. Employers will enjoy the time and cost savings of not having to place notices on a number of institutional and general web sites,” said Bevan Erickson, President of Member Solutions at AAPC.

Erickson explained applicants may search by role or location. Job categories, such as “Clinical,” can be further filtered using sub-categories such as “Nursing,” “Physician,” “Physical Therapy,” among others. Employers may be showcased to help attract the best applicants. Future resources to applicants’ efforts will be on-line assistance with resumes, interviews, personal branding, web applications, social media, and other topics.
“This is a very exciting development, not only for the coders, billers, auditors, compliance officers, practice managers and others who are AAPC members, but for the healthcare industry at large,” Erickson said. “This will prove to be the best recruitment resource for the healthcare industry.”

With completion of the Beta release, Careerhealth.com will provide access to more than 500,000 job postings, allow easy posting of open positions, and offer a myriad of additional features.
