What is the job outlook for Medical Billing and Coding?
Employment of medical records and health information specialists is projected to grow 8 percent from 2019 to 2029, much faster than the average for all occupations.
An aging population will require more medical services, and medical records and health information specialists will be needed to organize and manage the older generations’ health information data. This will mean more claims for reimbursement from insurance companies.
Additional records, coupled with widespread use of electronic health records (EHRs) by all types of healthcare providers, will lead to an increased need for specialists to organize and manage the associated information in all areas of the healthcare industry.
