Coding and CDI Professionals Eyeing Retirement in 1 to 5 Years – IT News Online

TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Over 17% of coding and CDI professionals recently indicated they are within 1 to 5 years of retirement. Harmony Healthcare recently conducted a survey of 1,300 coding and CDI professionals on their perspectives in the wake of the great resignation. Their responses underscore the urgency in building a strong staffing partnership to manage through a growing skills gap.

As a leader in delivering experts within reimbursement, population health, and information technology to providers across all care settings, Harmony Healthcare is on the leading edge of human capital strategies for coding and CDI professionals. These skills are vital to mitigating lost healthcare revenue and maximizing quality clinical outcomes.

“I have never seen more demand for coding and CDI candidates, so learning that 17% of current professionals plan on retiring soon was quite remarkable,” said Taylor Kolligs, VP, Recruitment Solutions of Harmony Healthcare. “There is very real pressure to attract potential career professionals to this industry while also investing in providing continuing education to current employees.”

Harmony Healthcare’s experience in solving complex labor challenges comes from a wide perspective, as they are on pace to deploy 1,000 consultants in 2021. Other critical findings from the survey include:

1) 53% of coding and CDI professionals are open to speaking with a recruiter about career their options
2) 34% have strongly considered taking a new job within the last 30 days

“This is a classic supply demand crunch where leaders should plan for rising pay rates and alternate sourcing strategies,” said Randy Verdino, CEO of Harmony Healthcare. “The workforce is completely virtual which complicates the issue. Anyone can work for any hospital, anywhere at any time.”
