Over the past three years, the landscape of health care and health care compliance has been reshaped by the COVID-19 pandemic. Not only is job demand up by more than 30% in several key sectors in the San Antonio metro area and the I-35 corridor, but corporate investment in such positions has also increased according to rising salaries.

In a recent report by the Society of Human Resources Professionals, the top three priority areas for health care compliance professionals are evidencing compliance program effectiveness, improving program manager ongoing monitoring and increasing leadership support. As the health care industry continues to grow and evolve in San Antonio and across the nation, professionals in the field are required to manage increasingly diverse functions.
