Obama's remark about medical coding

Becoming a Medical Coder How is the future for medical coder? The future for medical coders is great! In February 2009, Congress passed a stimulus plan with programs that President Obama envisioned as a way to reduce the cost of health care and pass the savings to the consumers. The cost savings measure is the modernization of health information technology which will require all information to be stored and accessed by computers instead of folders and papers. More medical coders will be needed by hospitals, solo practitioners, physicians network, dentists, etc. to maintain the standardized data of patient records. That means PLENTY OF JOBS in the near future for health information technicians, including medical coders!
