Consider training in the rapidly growing field of healthcare documentation
As you weigh training options, consider a career as a medical transcriptionist or in medical billing & coding. The field of healthcare documentation offers a professional career path with many advantages. First, it is experiencing a growth surge related to healthcare reform and the move to Electronic Health Records (EHR). Another great advantage is that many healthcare documentation jobs are portable, a feature that suits the demands of military family life. It’s also a profession that offers options for both work-at-home jobs and jobs in a variety of community-based healthcare settings.
