    Career Path

    I have worked in our billing department at our local hospital for about 4 years now but I am currently working on becoming an RHIT to find a position as a medical coder. I do not have any experience in coding but I am hoping my billing experience and education will be enough to get  a career in the HIM department. Does anyone know if my billing experience and my education will be enough to get me started? I would appreciate any suggestions as well!

     

    Thank you in advance.

    Yes as a RHIT you would be able to open your doors to different branches of the HIM world. Right now there is a big necessity for coders

    (ICD-10)so your experience in billing would be beneficial for your next career. Good Luck in this career.
