CHICAGO, Oct. 20, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- To address the recent growth in demand for electronic medical records (EMR), Hudson IT today announced the launch of a new healthcare information technology (HIT) practice.

The practice is led by Evan Keene, vice president of consulting services, and includes a tandem recruiting team with more than 20 years of combined experience in healthcare IT, recruiting and consulting.
