The Emerging Health Informatics Landscape: What and Where?

A Look at Portland, Maine

The healthcare industry is an important employer in the state of Maine. Of the top ten largest private employers in the state, four are health systems. Home to the largest hospital in the state and a diverse set of health analytics, technology, consulting, and insurance players, Portland follows this broader state employment trend. As of 2016, Maine is home to five different Medicare shared savings program accountable care communities (Community Care Partnerships of Maine, Beacon Rural Health, Maine Community Accountable Care Organization, Central Maine ACO, and MaineHealth Accountable Care Organization) and a multitude of value-based purchasing and insurance agreements, suggesting adoption of the underlying informatics capabilities associated with these accountable care practices.

Portland, Maine stands out as a nexus when it comes to the growing health informatics industry, offering a glimpse into emerging health informatics employment opportunities. This white paper addresses the following questions:

  • Where are they working?
  • What are they doing?
  • What are they paid?
