Hi my name is liz, I saw your request for help in your decision in the Medical field. I was in your shoes for a while. Going from Medical Assistant to Nursing to something in the Medical Field. But I came across Medical Coding. I wasn't sure what exactly it was read up on it and found it to be exactly what I would enjoy doing. I like yourself wasn't sure if I could handle Nursing or patient interaction. So I decided to do Medical Coding. I found a great college to go to online. US Career Institute Online. Great program to start in Medical Coding. If you are more computer wise and like working with Doctors and on the computer this would be a great job. Basically your assigning codes to Medical Records every time someone comes in for a doctors visit or outpatient vist or inpatient visit. It's a very high in demand job, always growing and ever needed. In today society there are people living longer so more people have more healthcare problems. So in return more Medical Coders are needed. It's up to us to insure efficient coding without us doctors and insurance companies would not get bill correctly. Our job is very important in the Medical Field. Pay is very good starting at 10-20 depending on experience and where you work. Well I hope to helped in your decision on obtaining a degree in the Medical Field. If you need anymore information on the College please feel free to email me back.
