The medical field is growing, which presents opportunities for open positions in various facilities. This means there is an increasing demand for more medical professionals. Medical office administration is a great first step into the medical field or a great next step for current medical professionals looking to further their education and advance their careers.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the employment outlook for medical records and health information specialists in the next ten years is expected to increase. Healthcare occupations are projected to grow 16%, adding about 2.6 million new jobs. This growth is much greater than the average projections for other occupational groups. There is no better time to start a healthcare career than right now.
Medical billers and administrators handle the behind-the-scenes work that keeps healthcare facilities running. They are essential to any facility’s procedures—responsible for most communication between providers, insurance companies, and patients. These billers and administrators are liaisons for all parties involved throughout the treatment and billing process. Positions are becoming available in remote capacities as well as in person.
United Career Institute’s new online Medical Office Administration program prepares its graduates to enter these roles confidently. In the 18 months of online education, students will learn about the healthcare industry by taking various classes, including medical terminology, electronic health records, and medical topics. They will finish with an associate’s degree, industry knowledge, and opportunities waiting for them.
The possibilities are endless with the increase in available positions and opportunities for hybrid/remote work. If you are an effective communicator with strong attention to detail and an interest in the healthcare field, this could be the path for you! Find out more about the benefits of an online degree!
