ELMWOOD PARK, N.J., Oct. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- ELLKAY, LLC, a leader in healthcare connectivity for over 18 years, is introducing an initiative to recognize women leaders who are making an impact in the healthcare IT industry. As a HIT company that is comprised of more than 50% women, the leadership of ELLKAY want to inspire women to join the industry by highlighting the experience and work that drives the female HIT leaders of today.

"There is still a disparity in the presence of women in our industry," said Shreya Patel, ELLKAY's Chief Innovation and Product Officer. "If we can share our stories and our passion for innovation in HIT, perhaps this will help inspire other women to take the leap into the tech sector. At ELLKAY, our experience has been that innovation in the industry benefits from having a diverse and balanced workforce."

According to the Atlantic, while 57 percent of occupations in the workforce are held by women, in the tech industry there is a less than 25 percent presence of women in associated occupations. ELLKAY hopes to join in the efforts in exposing women to careers in technology, specifically healthcare IT, by telling the stories of women who are leading in the field.
