Opportunities for Filipino Nurses in PH BPO

by: Sarah Joson

Friday, September 6, 2013 | Outsourcing News |

Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz of the Department of Labor and Employment urged licensed nurses and graduates to pursue jobs in one of the country’s key outsourcing segments, which is healthcare-information management. Although available jobs are non-clinical, they are said to be medical-related.

Baldoz said with the numerous developments in the healthcare industry, healthcare professionals, specifically nurses, will surely find non-traditional clinical jobs that are in demand in the local labor market. She noted that the business process outsourcing (BPO) sector is anticipated to contribute nearly 8 percent of the country’s GDP.

She also mentioned that the healthcare information-outsourcing segment is in fact one of the rapidly growing sectors offering more than 100,000 employment opportunities to nursing graduates.

Moreover, she said DOLE is supporting the 2012-2016 Information Technology and Business Process Management (IT-BPM) Roadmap which is projected to employ 3.2 million Filipinos indirectly and 1.3 million directly.

Some of the non-traditional careers available are medical secretaries, transcriptionists, medical coders and billers, medical representatives, and medical assistants.
