There is a wide variety of jobs in this position. It’s like a mini-city. I like to tell people that if a zombie apocalypse was going to happen – I would go to my hospital and block myself in. They have experts in computers, communication, bio-hazard, nutrition, and of course medical providers. What this field offers ranges from scheduling, to registration, to insurance billing, medical coding, releases of information, medical records, patient billing, financial counseling for patients, data analytics, informatics, information security and the list goes on and on. I also share the AHIMA career map which provides a more extensive list and shows growth opportunity. https://my.ahima.org/careermap.
