There would definitely be growth in employment in the health sector which deals with the chronic diseases, e-health records and providing patient centered healthcare system. According to me the idea of giving a holistic treatment to the patient would be a breakthrough in the healthcare system. This would be something very different from the traditional health care. This would have a huge impact on the lifestyle of an individual as he would have to incorporate certain changes. Since it would be a holistic approach there is a huge scope of increase in employment as it would require separate team of doctors, nurses and medical officers depending on the kind of patient being attended to (Evans, 2014).
The use of Information Technology in the health care system would enable the patient to see his progress and the patient would be involved in his own care. This according to me should be the ideal approach in treating a patient. The patient would have the control over his medication. This is a good sign as it would help the patient to understand how his body works. To meet the demand of this sector, the workforce needs to be trained so that the demand for workers could be meet. Another major point which was mentioned was that the workers need to have flexible working timings and the service provider should also take care of the individual worker’s goals within the workplace (Health Professional Workforce Plan Taskforce, 2012).
