I really want to work in the healthcare industry and I am starting to wonder if coding and all it entails would actually get me a job in it. Is there anyone here who is in the healthcare industry that can shed light on how technology and health intersect and how I can find that intersection?
I used to work on software for hospitals (used for billing and insurance claims). A friend of mine works for a company that makes testing equipment for cancer diagnostics.
How did you your friend get in? Like what credentials? Did he get in because he knew Java, python etc. Thanks for your reply
I am an RN BSN and web developer and I can tell you that to get in healthcare tech is not the best route. Its a plus if you can use the different Electronic medical records, but its not really going to help you get in. The best way to get in a hospital is to take a lower level job (CNA etc, Volunteer) and when they see you doing good work you get hired. best of luck!
He’s a systems tester. I don’t know how much his work is automated testing (which would require a fair amount of programming) versus manual tests.
