Telehealth Jobs: New $34 Billion Industry, Growing 24 Percent

Telehealth is the future in employment opportunity.

Telehealth, where technology and health care meet, is a new $34 billion industry, projected to grow 24 percent in the next four years, reports Advertiser Talk.

The next wave of sales jobs, for example, is being created in telesales at AT&T, Verizon, Cisco, GE, and IBM, notes AT&T has just launched a new division called ForHealthSM. From that platform AT&T will sell breakthrough wireless, networked, and from-the-cloud solutions for health care providers. Those could include using a smartphone to diagnose a disease or simulating a doctor's "house calls" via audio and video links.

Also developing are openings in telehealth for just about any other kind of professional in health care -- be it nurses or administrators -- in settings ranging from hospitals to insurance companies.

You can monitor what's happening on the employment front in telehealth with Telehealth Times.

Jane Genova


Jane Genova began focusing on transitions when the academic market collapsed as she was writing her dissertation in linguistics and literature at the University of Michigan.  After re-establishing herself in the public relations industry, she gradually published on the subject.  Her first piece was on The Professional Woman in THE WALL STREET JOURNAL.  Since then, she co-authored the book THE CRITICAL 14 YEARS OF YOUR PROFESSIONAL LIFE and myriad e-books and articles on career subjects ranging from emotional intelligence to aging.  In the 1980s she attempted another change by attending Harvard Law School.  She didn’t complete the degree but channeled that experience into maintaining a legal blog [] housed at the Library of Congress.
