A Personal Message About Work-at-home Jobs for Medical Coders and Medical Transcriptionists
By Linda Andrews, Director
The Andrews School
I used to get all bent out of shape when someone told me they wanted to work from home. Others still have that negative opinion. I get it! I really do understand. The visions of a person sitting there in her pajamas working while holding a 2-year-old child were just too vivid. Over the years Iâ€™ve learned a few things. Iâ€™ve talked with hundreds of people who had very solid reasons for working from home. Not only that, but now I have a different attitude about it entirely. I now think itâ€™s perfectly fine to find a work-at-home job just because thatâ€™s what you want to do.
Previously medical transcription was one of the few legitimate work-at-home professions. Now weâ€™re seeing professional coders doing very well in their medical coding careers, getting promotions, making excellent salaries, all while working from home. At a time when itâ€™s just one crisis after another, I think itâ€™s a very refreshing idea to be able to do your work from home. You donâ€™t have to face problems with traffic, parking spaces, bad weather, flu epidemics, or in some cases childcare. You might have to hire someone to oversee your children while you work, but you are there when you are needed. I donâ€™t have a problem with any of that. It sounds very smart to me. I only wish those opportunities had been available to me early in my career.
