Office Technologies

If you like working on computers, entering data, and getting paid for it, then here is some good news for you.
Medical secretary employment is projected to grow 16 percent from 2018 to 2028.  Aging baby boomers, for example, will require more medical services as they become eligible for Social Security and Medicare.  

As a result of these effects, medical secretaries will be needed to handle administrative tasks related to billing and insurance processing. Medical billers and coders are essential to the healthcare team at any medical facility.
You might enjoy this type of job if you are organized, efficient, and conscientious.  You like to be on your computer and work with details. You would like to help people without actually working with them.  You were the kind of kid who liked to play secretary, librarian, or work puzzles.

Attention to detail is important to you.  Catching errors to help save lives interests you. Working independently and flexible work hours are appealing. If so, this may be the job for you.
