Shrewsbury, MA and Greensboro, NC (PRWEB) January 10, 2012
The American Healthcare Documentation Professionals Group (AHDPG), a leading training and workforce development company focused on the healthcare documentation industry announces the launch of its newest offering - the Medical Billing and Coding Jump Start Program. The Medical Billing and Coding Jump Start Program is the most efficient and cost effective program available to help existing medical transcriptionists and other allied health professionals become certified as a professional biller and/or coder.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, medical billing and coding is one of the ten fastest growing allied health occupations and employers are actively seeking qualified candidates. The medical billing and coding industry is projected to grow by a staggering 20 percent over the next seven years. This is being driven by the aging of the population and the country’s move to a new coding system (ICD-10) in 2013.
As a result, the time is now, for individuals who can demonstrate their knowledge in the areas of medical terminology, anatomy and physiology and pharmacology to make the transition to a rewarding career in medical billing and coding. The Jump Start Program is a comprehensive program which will augment the established expertise of these industry professionals and provide the training necessary to become a professional biller and/or coder in less than six months and at a significantly reduced cost.
“Healthcare documentation plays a vital role in the healthcare industry, and medical billing and coding is a natural career path for many individuals with previous healthcare experience”, says Peter Reilly, President and CEO. “Couple this with the opportunity for better hours, higher pay, and you have the perfect next step for many experienced healthcare professionals."
As an American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) Approved Online Education Provider students are provided with the highest quality, most up-to-date curriculum facilitated by AAPC certified instructors.
