There are a few options in the healthcare field that might be a good fit for someone with an interest in both back office work and client interaction. Here are a few ideas:

Medical billing and coding: Medical billing and coding specialists are responsible for translating medical procedures into codes that can be used for billing purposes. This career often involves working with both medical records and interacting with clients to ensure that billing is accurate and up-to-date.

Health informatics: Health informatics professionals use information technology to manage and analyze healthcare data. They may work with electronic health records, data analytics, and other systems to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare delivery.

Medical office manager: Medical office managers are responsible for the administrative and financial aspects of a medical practice. They may work with patients to schedule appointments and handle billing, as well as manage staff and oversee the overall operation of the office.

Health insurance specialist: Health insurance specialists work with clients to help them understand their insurance options and navigate the healthcare system. They may also be involved in enrolling clients in insurance plans, processing claims, and resolving any issues that arise.

Each of these careers involves a mix of back office work and client interaction, and they may also offer opportunities for change and variety in your daily tasks. It's important to research each career in more detail and consider which one aligns best with your interests and goals.

Every hospital or health care company has real estate involved! Everything from construction planning, to medical office leasing, and contracting for medical offices.

You can pursue a 2-year degree possibly in real estate, pursue becoming a paralegal, project management, or learn more about facilities management for hospitals!

There's a ton of great options behind the scenes relating to real estate, facilities planning, and construction in healthcare!

Hi Alea,
I think you can do both at the same time if you can manage your time. There are a number of healthcare programs you can chose to attend related with medical sales for example.

Thanks

Darian’s Answer

Hello Alea. There are hundreds of different positions that are classified as healthcare which would more than likely suit your needs however they require varying levels of education. If you are looking at going into something with little to no prior training then working as a receptionist, caretaker, or phlebotomist might work. They constantly have to file paperwork and everyone's situation is unique in healthcare, so you would be able to see many different stories depending on where you work. If you are looking at going to school then medical assisting/nursing/radiology tech/ultrasound tech might be a good fit. These require 1-5 years of schooling and then you will be able to work almost anywhere, with plenty of paperwork and patient interaction. If you are looking at going all the way then most positions as a physician or physician's assistant require large amounts of paperwork and patient interaction, for example, those who work in an emergency room or family medicine. The only things I would not recommend if you like patient interaction is working in a lab or becoming something like a radiologist.

In all, almost any position you work at in healthcare has a decent amount of paperwork and other "back office work" because there is so much information that must be documented and so many regulations that need to be consistently met. The same can be said for client care. Healthcare can be a very personal field and it is uncommon to find a position in which you don't have to interact with clients.

Darian recommends the following next steps:

1. Decide what education level you are interested in.
2. Look around at different healthcare specialties and see what situation you would be interested working in (emergency medicine, geriatrics, family medicine, cardiology, neurology, orthopedics, plastic surgery, etc.).
3. Find what position fits those other two criteria, there are probably many!

Ndi’s Answer

Alea,
You like to do back office work.
I love healthcare field because they is always a place for everyone.
Now let's start to examine all the field with respect to the your desires. We have a couple and that will equally required you to go to school and get some licence's thou you can equally do apprenticeship programs which will permit you to be paid why studying at the same time. Check the following

1, Healthcare administration. This is a Field that will permit you to work in the office and still interact with clients, it will require 4 years and even more.

2, Public health. Public health is equally a very good field and will open you to both office, client and the community at large. 5 years and above to study.
3, Nurse manager, you can take this course but mostly nurses just work as a nurse and get promoted with time.

They are a whole lot of administrative department in the health field thou many nurses seems to run away from it. Do alittle bit of research and pick that which suit you. Thank you for the question

J. Camille’s Answer

Well, the overall skills needed as a Realtor could be helpful in another job, I was previously a Realtor several years ago. It is demanding in and of itself. Remember this.
I can’t think of a directly related healthcare position unless maybe a hospital information desk greeter. Talk to a few seasoned realtors. Think about what it is about healthcare and you specifically that interests you. Then find some contacts through the help of your school counselor or advisor to meet with. We do not all ultimately stay in the career field we think we want or will connect with successfully. Remember it is your life. The more specific informed information you can gather the better. Best wishes for a great future.
