First, do you know JAVA. If you don't then you need to learn it to be marketable. Most companies what you to have JAVA before you start. If you have comparable skill they MIGHT hire you and let you learn on the job, but not usually in our tight job market.

Second, it doesn't matter that youa re doing ASP.Net right now because Java can be done in the .Net environment also. .Net is a framework. So you need to look at the job you want, look at the skills the company requires and compare what you have with what you need to have.

Also, highly important today is communication (written and verbal). Companies look for employees who can work well in their environments, with clients, with other employees and so on.

Good Luck

If you are new to Java, you will have to start little behind than the experienced Java professionals.

1) But if you have a good grasp of Web development concepts/skills, then you can catch up fast. You should highlight your HTML, XML, CSS and JavaScript experience and skill levels at the minimum to your potential employers, apart from the HealthCare domain knowledge.

2) It will be useful for you to compare and contrast things in the .Net and Java world. For example, if you have done user field validations in pages, know how it is done in Java. List out some of the important programming tasks you have done in ASP.Net, and find out how it is done best in Java.

3) Then, as you are hunting for a job, develop and host a website that could put into practice all that you had learnt in #2 above. Later you could even put this in resume.

4)Looking for jobs in the HealthCare sector will be advantageous.

ps: I am a .net guy
