Systematically quantifying and tracking the evolution of the health workforce is a challenge, yet it is important for identifying emerging demands for different skills and competencies. Real Time Labor Market Information (RT-LMI), a source of data that is increasingly used to monitor workforce demand, extracts information from online job ads to track demand for general labor market skills, including for the health workforce.
The purpose of this study is to identify how five domains of emerging roles in healthcare have been incorporated into the job titles and descriptions of healthcare occupations by using RT-LMI data from LinkUp, a job search engine company.
