I am excited to continue and finally complete an associates degree after having my son. I am trying to figure out which would be the best route for myself after figuring out that I want to work in health care but on the business end...no drawing blood for me!
1)Health Information Technology
2)Medical Administrative Assistant
I would then like to go on and get a bachelors in Health Service Administration which in my program book is more of a management position and a much higher earning level. I think I could do this bachelors program from either choice 1 or 2.
On the bls.gov site it shows that a medical admin assistant would on average make more than an HIT specialist....Im not sure about all of the coding knowledge required for HIT with all of the memorizing.
I am not sure which field to go into, although similiar they are still different.
Does anyon else have some advice on this?
