(ARA) – The health care industry is growing and changing, thanks in large part to developments in medical technology. In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, seven of the 20 fastest growing occupations across the nation are in health care, although local employment markets may vary. These days, many procedures can be done faster, painlessly and with minimal invasion, making things easier on both patients and practitioners.
Because of these technological advancements, the health care industry is in need of professionals who have completed cardiovascular sonography training, medical assistant training, and other non-traditional health care programs that teach students the latest in medical technology.
Medical technology has advanced many areas of the industry. Here are some examples of how technology is helping the field grow:
One of the most common surgical procedures in this country, surgery for abdominal aortic aneurysm, is starting to be done using an endovascular procedure, which is safer, faster and causes significantly less pain than the traditional surgical method. To help assist with these surgeries, the health care community will need individuals who have completed the appropriate health care training.
Also, because medical assistants are becoming such an integral part of so many health care offices and hospitals, clinical medical assistants must also be up to date on the latest technological breakthroughs.
The health care industry – and as a result, health care training – is expected to continue to expand due in part to advancements in medical technology. If you've been thinking of a career in health care as a medical assistant or other health care professional, now is a better time than ever to enroll in classes on the way to a degree.
