At a conference conducted by the Healthcare Information Management Outsourcing Association of the Philippines (HIMOAP), Myla Rose Mundo-Reyes, HIMOAP president, said the Philippines is aiming to get five percent market share of the global healthcare info outsourcing industry. This means a lot of new job opportunities, or more than 100,000 jobs, for the country’s nursing and allied medical professional graduates.
"The increased demand for electronic healthcare pens up huge career opportunities for nursing and allied medical professionals for medical coding, PHI entry and management, disease management and patient education and other services related to the administrative functions of a hospital, a home for the aged, and other medical centers," Mundo-Reyes said, adding that there are 400,000 nursing graduates in the country every year, so it is essential to gain this market share to manage the surplus.
The country currently has 50 companies offering medical transcription services including medical coding, medical billing, and claims processing.
