Medical Biller and Coder
Patient Care Tech
I don't know you well enough to say any one fits you, but I can say that you shouldn't be medical billing and coder, it's a mess... and that's all I'll say about that. Depending on your skills and personality. Dental assistant is good if you don't mind working with people's teeth and mouths. Healthcare Specialist is good if you have decent bedside manner or can understand the health problems people have. A Pharmacy Tech is good if you don't mind sorting through things in mind numbing way, they mostly get prescriptions sorted and ready for people to pick up. A Patient Care Tech is basically an assistant to nurses, think nurse intern, basically you do support work - change bedding, serve meals, read monitors, drawing blood, etc. so if that sounds like you, go for it. Home Health is similar to Patient Care, except you're at the patient's home and aide a bit more. It's up to you, but I thought you wanted to be a massage therapist... If this is just an interim thing until you can save up for tuition, I suggest Patient Care or Home Health, might give you a leg up. Granted, you could go for being a nurse, but if I recall that takes longer... You could also work for a chiropractor, that'll give similar experience to massage therapy, look around, there are various medical positions that don't require medical skills. Follow and message me if you want to discuss further, I have a few friends and relative in the medical field if want to talk to them to get a better feel.
Any of them would be good. Pick whichever one you think you would enjoy the most.
In my experience, I have always had my dentists be women (for whatever reason 🤷♂️) so maybe a dentist assistant and then you can work your way up to be a full-on dentist.
But, whichever one you’re interested in you should do it. These all have to do with helping, or taking care of people: but which one are you most interested in personally? Because whichever one you are most passionate about, or whichever one you think is important or most appealing, is the one you should do!
None of the above instead it should be
Health care billing consultant CEO
Patient Care/Home health Business CEO
Why shoot for the lower rung when you can be the top dog.
Because those are not my dream jobs. My dream job is being a mom and these certificates will allow me to be a mom soon and still be finically stable
That is fair, Probably a dental assistant then, most other health care people have to work weird hours. I do not know many dentists that are open on holidays or weekends.
They are all good choices and I'm certain you would be successful at any of them. If you don't want patient interaction the Medical Biller and Coder is best. I'm going to go with Healthcare Specialist because I know you can be anything you put your mind to including brain surgeon.
Pharmacy tech because then you can work in a store that sells food so you don’t have to travel far for lunch. That’s how I make all my life’s decisions - by determining the quickest and easiest access to food.
Well I think if you want to be around people then any the one's that deal with being a people person and if you're not then the billing part would be a better choice. I believe that anything having to do with the medical field is always good since there's always going to be a need for that.
I think being a pharmacy tech would be the least stressful job. You would just have to make sure prescriptions are filled correctly. You may encounter a few rude customers. A pharmacy tech doesn't make a lot of money. I think they make about $14 an hour. A dental assistant makes slightly more money. I always thought a dental assistant cleaned people's teeth. A dental hygienist does that. A dental assistant helps a dentist. A dental hygienist can make a lot of money. They can make more than $75,000 a year. Some of them are making $90,000 a year.
A pharmacy tech was my first choice. I voted for that. I think working as a dental assistant would be more interesting and pay more. Working in a pharmacy does seem like one of the most boring jobs. I don't know how much it would cost to become a dental hygienist.
Women work in all the above Fields. Which career is your passion? What does Hannah_anne_Linge want to do deep down. You're a beautiful, bright, goal oriented woman. You can do anything you set your mind to. Listen to your heart and soul. You already know what career you want to do.
Dental is a pretty good field , I have a handful of friends that are Dental assistants and or hygienists.
Medical coding and billing that takes a while to complete...
Medical assistant or nursing equivalent is hard but worthwhile when you know you can make a difference.
Healthcare Specialist or Medical Biller. The other jobs are too much work and usually require some kind of medical school. I think a woman (like you) would get sick of them after a few months. The two I chose are easy and pay around the same amount.
Dental assistant may be extremely marketable and is a job that is unlikely to become obsolete.
Medical Biller and Coder would probably have positions that would allow you to work from home if you wanted to stay home with small children.
I thought you were a model looking at your profile picture. But if you insist on a medical profession then I'd say Healthcare Specialist. Break the stereotype and do more for women, you'll love it.
Also, if you prefer the company of women in your profession OB/GYNs may be the way to go. While 93 percent of OB/GYNs were men five decades ago, that figure has now slipped to 41 percent, and the vast majority of gynecology students that will staff the next generation are female (82 percent).
Lol! Babe these are all amazing jobs! I believe that the pharmacist is the least in schooling requirements. But honestly I think that a lady can be awesome in anyone of those! I just hope that you find what you like best.
I think I would suggest pharmacy tech or dentist tech.
As a job, biller & coder. The skills are transferable between industries and the pay is OK. Not great. Its mind-numbing. But short term its OK.
I did billing and coding when my doctor was just getting going. You better know your shit. I chose a patient care professional. It is the most rewarding, in my opinion.
Dental assistant if you like dealing with patients.
Medical Billing if you do not.
medical bill and coder but that's cause I'm into computers do what your most compassionate about and best at.
I'm a certified pharmacy tech 😄
Home health is hard. It can be heart breaking or you might have to deal with a lot of unpleasant fluids.
Well all the professionals you mentioned above are good. Choose the one according to your skills and interest
I'm sorry, but best for a woman is not a good criteria. What interests the person and what are they good at? Every person is unique and what job is cl best for them will be unique to them
It depends on what is important to you. Each has + and - .
Dental "assistant". NOT a hygienist, but an assistant. Big difference- in training and pay. I could be a dental assistant right now - with no extra training- except I wouldn't have an official "cred" . Pull a file, get them in a chair, pre-screen questions, any updates?, initial your form, put a bib on you, maybe pull a BP check- not rocket science. Good for the socializer. Will the industry always need them? Yes. But can you support your life with this job? Likely not.
Medical biller/coder. Since the DMS's are always changing - and NOT for the better- this title will always be in some sort of demand. But, with every new release, you will have to have the corresponding updated training. Good for the detail-minded and you might be able to work VO. Some hire by the hour, some by the piece. Your interface is primarily with your work peers and not the public so much.
Healthcare "specialist". This is so vague you could drive a truck through it. Need more info - there are "specialists" and there are Specialists!
Pharmacy Tech. (This would be my pick if it was me and my future and these were my only choices.). You would have to learn LOT of terminology to start, but, at least you could have the PT position, while you study for Pharm Asst job and then, maybe, Pharmacist! Much of the time, you'd be typing labels, going through pro form info with patient/customers, and counting pills - lot of pills! Great if you can count to 90! :- ) Now, most if not all pharmacies have some sort of computer system that will prompt for drug interactions, and other goodies like that. Your interaction is with customers, but it's fairly cut and dried.
Patient Care Tech. High interaction with the patient. I couldn't stand to have to smile all day, maybe you could though. And again, titles in this genre can vary from place to place, etc. and still be doing the same work, or maybe different. Pay varies widely, too. If you are available at odd hours, that would be a plus. But you would be responsible for running their vitals, giving meds, maybe pulling blood draws, moving the patient, etc. and may have to prep meals, etc. BY the visit, by the day, week, permanent assignment, etc. - many arrangements are possible.
Home Health. Again, too vague of a title to really get into specifics. In general, would be responsible for the more minor, DTD wellcare of a patient. Food prep, some errands, some cleaning, organization would also be on the schedule. And again, everything has to be done with a nice, warm, calming smile- great for the socializer.
So, as I said, it kind of boils down o what YOUR needs are, what traits you have, and what you want to do in the future. Good luck.
