But healthcare is actually poised to become one of the most innovative fields because of its considerable capacity for growth and change, and young job seekers looking to make an impact in a transforming field need look no further.</p> <p>As one of the largest industries in the United States, healthcare covers a wide breadth of services that all present opportunities for innovative solutions. Digital health media company <a href="http://www.mobihealthnews.com/content/health-20-sees-future-healthcare-innovation-collaboration">Health 2.0 points out</a> that the field has recently seen new market entrances, new business models and new applications for technology.</p> <p>These and many other factors have the potential to advance healthcare quickly and significantly, but it's up to the people behind healthcare as a whole and what steps they take. Indu Subaiya, Health 2.0's co-founder, <a href="http://www.healthcareitnews.com/news/health-20-sees-future-healthcare-innovation-collaboration">comments</a>: "Ideally [healthcare innovation] responds in real time to our actions."</p> <p>With that much room for growth, the healthcare sector is hungry for young talent — and it’s not limited to traditional roles like doctors and nurses. Jobs in healthcare administration are expected to grow by <a href="https://masterpublichealth.com/what-is-health-care-administration/the-benefits-of-working-in-healthcare-administration/">22 percent</a> over the next two years, offer great monetary benefits and provide high levels of job satisfaction. For bright young people wanting to make a difference and work on the cutting edge of innovation, healthcare is an ideal place to start.</p> <p>Advancements in Healthcare</p> <p>Data and technology are helping the healthcare field push the innovation envelope. <a href="https://healthitanalytics.com/news/partners-sets-the-tone-for-artificial-intelligence-in-healthcare">Artificial intelligence</a> is one advancement allowing clinicians to perform their jobs better and more efficiently. Radiologists, for example, are using AI to process images, which then helps them diagnose patients more accurately. And the rise of machines doesn't negate the human element of healthcare. Technology streamlines certain aspects of the job, giving healthcare providers more time to connect with patients.</p> <p>Patients and other professionals are also playing a larger role in designing the healthcare systems and processes of the future. <a href="https://hbr.org/2018/03/putting-humans-at-the-center-of-health-care-innovation">Some institutions</a> are empowering patients, engineers, designers and business people to contribute to innovation programs. Outside input has helped the Helix Centre at Imperial College of London transform end-of-life care and improved the Mayo Clinic Center for Innovation's clinical exam rooms, for instance.</p> <p>At the heart of these advances is collaboration, which bodes well for the innovative job-seeker without a medical degree. There is a multitude of opportunities to contribute to this field, including these four roles:</p> <p>1. Medical Assistant</p> <p>If you’re looking for more variety in your day-to-day and you’re interested in taking on some medical care duties, a medical assistant position may be a great option. This role allows you to assist physicians with things like taking patients’ blood pressure and even participate in minor procedures. This is in addition to general office tasks like updating records and helping patients schedule appointments.</p> <p>This is also a very in-demand role, expected to grow <a href="https://www.bls.gov/ooh/healthcare/medical-assistants.htm">nearly 30 percent</a> between 2016 and 2026 — much faster than the average position within the healthcare industry.</p> <p>2. Medical Biller</p> <p>This role provides a great opportunity if you have an interest in math and finances. There are plenty of opportunities within the United States — demand for this job will <a href="https://www.aimseducation.edu/blog/why-start-medical-billing-and-coding-career/">grow by around 15 percent</a> by 2024. Medical billers maintain records, collect patients’ payments and help facilitate insurance claims for reimbursements.</p> <p>3. Medical Secretary</p> <p>Medical secretaries are responsible for making sure medical offices run smoothly and efficiently. It's <a href="http://work.chron.com/medical-secretary-advantages-disadvantages-job-14098.html">one of the most in-demand jobs in the country</a>, and the position handles all of the vital functions of the office. It's a great role for the organized individual who's tech-savvy enough to work with all the new platforms and devices being implemented.</p> <p>4. Occupational Therapist Aide</p> <p>Similar to a medical assistant, an occupational therapist aide helps with treatment and clerical tasks. Occupational therapists focus specifically on rehabilitative services, so the work differs in the type of patient care you’d be helping to provide.</p> <p>The key to getting hired into one of these positions is leveraging past transferrable experience. For example, previous admin experience would give you a leg up to get hired as a medical secretary, while a financial background would help you attain a job as a medical biller.</p> <p>Even if you don’t have relevant experience, you can <a href="https://www.reed.co.uk/career-advice/how-to-get-a-job-in-healthcare-without-any-experience/">apprentice</a> first. And from there, many of the roles allow for upward mobility through various certifications.</p> <p>So while it may seem like Silicon Valley-type companies are leading the way in the innovative tech space, healthcare should be seen as the new face of innovation. It's evolving rapidly, and it has huge potential to affect our everyday lives. For those want to make a difference in a transformational field, healthcare provides a wealth of opportunities.</p></div> <div class="field field--name-field-disqus-comments field--type-disqus-comment field--label-hidden field__item"><drupal-render-placeholder callback="Drupal\disqus\Element\Disqus::displayDisqusComments" arguments="0=Want%20to%20Get%20in%20on%20the%20Ground%20Floor%20of%20Innovation%3F%20Work%20in%20Healthcare&amp;1=https%3A//healthcare.careercast.com/career-news/healthcare-innovation&amp;2=node/51827" token="GMr6Zu67TYkVlghoQ5BJMSV1uVJvkl_9vte4_fKtwgA"></drupal-render-placeholder></div> Mon, 18 Jun 2018 14:51:47 +0000 CareerCast.com 51827 at https://healthcare.careercast.com Careers in Cardiac Sonography https://healthcare.careercast.com/article/careers-cardiac-sonography <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Careers in Cardiac Sonography </span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Anonymous</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Sat, 03/18/2017 - 12:16</span> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/sonography-body-216x180.jpg" width="216" height="180" alt="Careers in Cardiac Sonography " typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Thanks to media attention for the American Heart Association's "Go Red" campaign to raise awareness of heart disease in women, you may already know that heart disease is the top killer of American women each year.</p> <p>What you may not know are the factors fueling the demand for cardiac sonographers, the specially trained health professionals who use ultrasound technology to help detect and monitor heart disease.</p> <p>According to Ken Horton, the Chair of the Council on Cardiovascular Sonography of the American Society of Echocardiography, the cost, safety, efficiency, and portability of cardiac ultrasound in comparison to other imaging modalities are all factors fueling the demand for ultrasound testing, and therefore the demand for sonographers.</p> <p>"Ultrasound is a relatively inexpensive imaging modality that does not utilize ionizing radiation so is safer for our patients," said Horton.</p> <p><a href="http://www.nola.com/careerwise/index.ssf?/careerwise/html/articles/0313131149_cardiacsonographer.html" target="_blank">CONTINUE READING AT NOLA.COM</a></p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-disqus-comments field--type-disqus-comment field--label-hidden field__item"><drupal-render-placeholder callback="Drupal\disqus\Element\Disqus::displayDisqusComments" arguments="0=Careers%20in%20Cardiac%20Sonography%20&amp;1=https%3A//healthcare.careercast.com/article/careers-cardiac-sonography&amp;2=node/46730" token="gcVAwUOm4qL4O4GRsFKPPDrLSMicsPybDAqu3L6HtSU"></drupal-render-placeholder></div> Sat, 18 Mar 2017 19:16:30 +0000 Anonymous 46730 at https://healthcare.careercast.com Coding Versus Billing Skills https://healthcare.careercast.com/article/coding-versus-billing-skills <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Coding Versus Billing Skills</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Anonymous</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Thu, 08/18/2016 - 12:16</span> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/healthcare-billing-216x180.jpg" width="216" height="180" alt="Coding Versus Billing Skills" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Q: I am the new office manager in my husband's practice, but I have no experience in coding.

While the recession impacted hiring at hospitals -- the industry largely plateaued through 2009 and 2010 -- the recent jumps in hiring greatly outpace the sector's steady climb from 2005 through 2008.</p> <p>Per the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), roughly 4.9 million are employed in hospital jobs as of June 2015.

However, it's your best chance of getting your foot in the door of an employer that may or may not have thought about hiring you based on your resume. Cover letters get personal; employers want to see who you are through them. When you're conducting a healthcare job search it's important to put together one that tells the prospective employer who you are and what you've achieved in the field to date. Create a stellar cover letter by knowing the difference between what information you should and shouldn't put inside it.</p> <p><strong>Express Yourself</strong></p> <p>Inject your personality because this is where your window of opportunity to make an impression lies. Addressing your letter with phrases such as “to whom it may concern” and “dear sir” makes the potential interviewer think that you sent the same one to many different employers. Take the time to look up the hiring manager and place his or her name at the top.</p> <p><strong>No Copycats Allowed</strong></p> <p>You don't want to sound like you copied your letter from another source such as a book or on the Internet because it's the quickest way to get it tossed aside. Employers spot copycat cover letters from a mile away. You want to change-up the sentences and add some personal details about your life. For example, tell the heath care company about how volunteering at your local homeless shelter enabled you to feel empathy for people in need and how later you decided to incorporate that dream into a career in the healthcare industry.</p> <p><strong>Don’t Brag</strong></p> <p>Reign in your desire to ramble on and on about your personal achievements and work history. You most definitely want to list your professional successes. However, going into great detail causes the interviewer's eyes to glaze over. They stop looking at what makes you stand out and start daydreaming about what they're fixing for dinner that night. Most employers prefer to see a cover letter that reads no more than two paragraphs long.</p> <p><strong>Get Noticed</strong></p> <p>Incorporate phrases that will “get you noticed” by a potential employer to avoid seeing your cover letter tossed aside before it's even been read for five minutes. List how you're indispensable to the company by relating your achievements in sentences that begin with “My team and I resolved a difficult patient problem by” and go on to list how you helped the patient who may, otherwise, may not have gotten through their ordeal. Following this practice will aid you as you navigate through your healthcare job search.</p> <p><strong>There is no “I” in “Team”</strong></p> <p>Highlight your willingness to work with others because healthcare companies rarely have positions open where you work without the aid of a team. Everyone from doctors to office staff consults with each other for the end goal of taking care of patients and making sure the facility runs smoothly. Include examples where you displayed team spirit such as group hobbies, volunteer efforts and past military experiences.</p> <p><strong>Do What You Say</strong></p> <p>Add in a call to action at the end of your cover letter and make plans to hold yourself to it. For example, if you end your letter with a statement such as “I look forward to talking with you next Tuesday at 3 p.m.,” and you don't follow through, the employer is sure to toss your letter into the waste basket. Following through on your cover letter in the beginning shows you have the ability to carry out personal tasks, which in the employers eyes, leads to you following through on company goals.</p> <p><strong>Don’t Jump Ahead</strong></p> <p>Refrain from asking about salary information unless the company requests it because doing so appears tacky on your part to potential employers. Wait until later to enquire about how much you're going to make because you may find that the healthcare company gives you the first amount to negotiate with.</p> <p><strong>Proofread, Proofread, Proofread</strong></p> <p>Pick over your cover letter and resume with a fine tooth comb to make sure it is free of errors. Check for run on sentences, typos and false information. Typos say that you won't take the time to delve deep enough into a problem in order to fix it with accuracy. Going the extra distance to make sure your cover letter and resume stands out makes all the difference as you carry out your healthcare job search because, before long, you'll find an employer who wants to learn more about you.</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-disqus-comments field--type-disqus-comment field--label-hidden field__item"><drupal-render-placeholder callback="Drupal\disqus\Element\Disqus::displayDisqusComments" arguments="0=Healthcare%20Cover%20Letter%20Do%27s%20and%20Don%27ts&amp;1=https%3A//healthcare.careercast.com/article/healthcare-cover-letter-dos-and-donts&amp;2=node/46716" token="ut9qmr2WojpSbTV7-6gNkg24NuTyJAl2AivXkxgrHbo"></drupal-render-placeholder></div> Thu, 18 Aug 2016 19:16:30 +0000 Anonymous 46716 at https://healthcare.careercast.com Healthcare Grads Are In Demand https://healthcare.careercast.com/article/healthcare-grads-are-demand <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Healthcare Grads Are In Demand</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Anonymous</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Thu, 08/18/2016 - 12:16</span> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/healthcare-061213-body.jpg" width="216" height="180" alt="Healthcare Grads Are In Demand" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>As the school year at U.S. colleges and universities ends, it's safe to assume most new college graduates who haven't finalized job offers yet are scrambling to land interviews and their first post-graduate jobs.</p> <p>Those job hunters should find the results of a new salary survey from the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) encouraging. According to the survey, this year's new bachelor's degree graduates are receiving average starting salaries 5.3% higher than those received by last year's grads.</p> <p>According to NACE Executive Director Marilyn Mackes, "The sizeable gains in several disciplines --- particularly in health sciences and business --- have helped drive up the average starting salary for the Class of 2013."</p> <p>Mackes noted that the biggest salary increases went to new health sciences and business grads, who garnered 9.4 % and 7.1% increases respectively over their 2012 counterparts.</p> <p><a href="http://www.nola.com/careerwise/index.ssf?/careerwise/html/articles/0508131402_salarytrendfornewgrads.html" target="_blank">CONTINUE READING AT NOLA.COM</a></p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-disqus-comments field--type-disqus-comment field--label-hidden field__item"><drupal-render-placeholder callback="Drupal\disqus\Element\Disqus::displayDisqusComments" arguments="0=Healthcare%20Grads%20Are%20In%20Demand&amp;1=https%3A//healthcare.careercast.com/article/healthcare-grads-are-demand&amp;2=node/46732" token="QyJA-kZDbaN9GkBOesiDrOvZqpW1F0b8YGoTdjhhYLg"></drupal-render-placeholder></div> Thu, 18 Aug 2016 19:16:30 +0000 Anonymous 46732 at https://healthcare.careercast.com The Outlook For Healthcare Providers In 2015 https://healthcare.careercast.com/article/outlook-healthcare-providers-2015 <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">The Outlook For Healthcare Providers In 2015 </span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Anonymous</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Thu, 08/18/2016 - 12:16</span> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/healthcare-article-011915.png" width="216" height="180" alt="The Outlook For Healthcare Providers In 2015 " typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>2014 was a good year for health insurers. Profits were up. Enrollment was up 16 million thanks to the healthcare marketplaces and Medicaid expansion in states that outsource to private MCOs to run their programs. Medicare Advantage plans remained popular among seniors and profitable for sponsors, and the number of plan options on health exchanges increased 25% from their first year.</p> <p>As we enter 2015, prospects for continued enrollment gains and solid financial performance are good. There were no major glitches in healthcare.gov in November, red states such as Tennessee announced plans to expand their Medicaid programs using vouchers enrollees can use to buy private coverage and employers that provide coverage say they’ll continue.</p> <p>But not so fast! While prospects are good, there are issues in 2015 that could dramatically disrupt the industry’s recent smooth ride.</p> <p><a href="http://managedhealthcareexecutive.modernmedicine.com/managed-healthcare-executive/news/2015-health-insurers-what-s-ahead" target="_blank">CONTINUE READING AT MODERN MEDICINE</a></p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-disqus-comments field--type-disqus-comment field--label-hidden field__item"><drupal-render-placeholder callback="Drupal\disqus\Element\Disqus::displayDisqusComments" arguments="0=The%20Outlook%20For%20Healthcare%20Providers%20In%202015%20&amp;1=https%3A//healthcare.careercast.com/article/outlook-healthcare-providers-2015&amp;2=node/46751" token="OQ1TDy-oMGWdzO4hEc0a6oYDf0tQsA1ed5b3MXYEdhg"></drupal-render-placeholder></div> Thu, 18 Aug 2016 19:16:30 +0000 Anonymous 46751 at https://healthcare.careercast.com The Future Is Electronic Prescribing https://healthcare.careercast.com/article/future-electronic-prescribing <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">The Future Is Electronic Prescribing </span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Anonymous</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Thu, 08/18/2016 - 12:16</span> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/medical-090315.png" width="216" height="180" alt="The Future Is Electronic Prescribing " typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Medical office automation continues to move at incredible speed.

Doing so has become an important component in helping providers automate their offices in ways that contribute to better and safer patient care, while allowing them to spend more time with patients.</p> <p><a href="http://medicaleconomics.modernmedicine.com/medical-economics/news/physicians-should-embrace-electronic-prescribing" target="_blank">READ MORE AT MODERN MEDICINE</a></p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-disqus-comments field--type-disqus-comment field--label-hidden field__item"><drupal-render-placeholder callback="Drupal\disqus\Element\Disqus::displayDisqusComments" arguments="0=The%20Future%20Is%20Electronic%20Prescribing%20&amp;1=https%3A//healthcare.careercast.com/article/future-electronic-prescribing&amp;2=node/46767" token="cDm1KJnGMjanVPW9E52zAX6Z5LUn1AAQBHanNVkjEL8"></drupal-render-placeholder></div> Thu, 18 Aug 2016 19:16:30 +0000 Anonymous 46767 at https://healthcare.careercast.com
