Since 1969 Meditec has been in the business of innovating, implementing, practicing, and refining medical coding and medical information management solutions, all of which require specialized training to perform. This is the reason Meditec authored their line of Medical Transcription, Coding and Billing, and have since added Medical Office Specialist and Legal Transcription and Paralegal training programs. With the advent and common sense related to the advantages of working at home, the programs are designed to move people desirous of those careers into the marketplace very rapidly.
With the downturn in the economy and imminent layoffs, people are searching for alternatives, opportunities for home employment become more attractive. The short and sweet of all this is that medical transcriptionists have, in many ways, led the revolution in work-at-home business. While there are both pros and cons to being your own boss, the rewards and benefits are also outstanding. Those benefits obviously include being at home in your own comfortable space, and in many cases being able to dictate your own office hours. For most transcriptionists, the ability to earn is tied directly to the number of lines (production), so as speed and experience increase, transcriptionists automatically make more money, without having to wait for a yearly evaluation from their boss, or having to worry about incremental salary increase issues.
The tremendous explosion in internet communications has definitely enhanced and increased the opportunities that have been around medical transcription for decades. Meditec's online courses are highly rated for their platform approach to education, and may all be done at home. Learn at home to work at home, what could be easier?
A recent article in the Salt Lake Tribune's business section highlighted the growing number of employment opportunities for people who want to work from home. The article primarily focused on the growing home-based call center industry employees now termed "cyberagents." As of the date written, it was estimated that 112,000 cyberagents were presently working with that number expected to triple by 2010! Those numbers represent an overall trend for businesses - it costs much less for the same or better work products. Economic facts: Whatever work may possibly be done at home will be done at home using the latest computer and internet technologies.
Meditec recently featured a report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics website which highlighted the continued growth and strength of the job market in the medical services industry. Medical transcription and medical billing opportunities continue to be very strong and the opportunities for those trained in these skills, who also want (or need) to work from home, are virtually limitless.
Aware of the sometimes difficult cost of switching or developing a new career, Meditec (meditec.com) has implemented a substantial discount program for its medical transcription, coding, billing programs, as well as the legal training courses. Financing options make the training very affordable. The best part is that the process of learning is faster than most so the trainee can be working in as little as 3 to 4 months after starting the course.
