Computerworld's 24th annual list of the "100 Best Places to Work in IT" includes 17 hospitals and health systems.
To qualify for the list, U.S.-based companies were required to have at least 30 IT workers. Companies based outside of the United States were required to have at least 300 workers at a U.S. headquarters, to have at least 50 percent of their IT employees based in the United States, and to have a minimum of 30 U.S. IT employees.
Computerworld solicited nominations for the list in fall 2016 and surveyed the 450 nominated organizations to determine various job characteristics, including:
- Average salary and bonus increases;
- Diversity among IT staff and management;
- Percentage of IT staff promoted;
- Training and development opportunities; and
- Turnover rates among IT staff.
The magazine then surveyed a random sample of IT employees at the eligible companies on topics such as satisfaction with training and work-life balance.
Computerworld grouped the final 100 honorees into three categories:
- Small firms, or those with fewer than 1,000 U.S. employees;
- Midsize firms, or those with 1,000 to 4,999 U.S. employees; and
- Large firms, or those with 5,000 or more U.S. employees.

Join us on June 27 to learn the role of IT in providing superior consumer service
Doug Thompson , Senior Research Director
This presentation explores the powerful connection between customer loyalty and the financial performance of hospitals and health systems. It describes changes in the US healthcare marketplace that have led to an increase in consumer interest in and influence over their own health care.
We explain how information technology (IT) can help form durable consumer relationships with the health system, including how to establish a simplified and connected consumer platform, how to create a ROI for loyal consumers, and how to cultivate consumer champions or "raving fans".
