Career and Employment Outlook: 

Medical records and health information fields are expected to grow at a much faster rate than average occupations, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, due to the increase in medical testing, diagnosis, procedures and treatments.  This leads to a higher demand for medical billing and coding workers in physician and outpatient care health clinics, hospitals, insurance companies, nursing care facilities, and federal government settings.
