7 Gerontology Aging Services Specialist If you want to become involved in one of the fastest growing areas of health services and would like to help serve the aging population, consider a career in gerontology. 450 Clock Hour Postsecondary Adult Vocational (PSAV) Certificate Program This program is designed to educate and empower frontline workers in assisted living facilities, hospitals, nursing homes, home health care agencies, and community services agencies to provide care to those aged 60+. The program will: Provide training that will enhance occupational skills necessary to maintain current employment and/or access to career advancement opportunities. Gerontology Fast Facts Between 2010 and 2030, the population over age 65 will increase by 73%. In 2000, the number of people age 65 was nearly 35 million. By 2020, this number is expected to be 55 million, and by 2040, 80 million. Growth in this segment is attributed to longer life expectancy and the aging of the baby boom generation. American Medical Student Association, Merck Manual of Geriatrics, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Assist business and government agencies in developing and maintaining a stable and qualified long-term workforce. Specifically target students who are working in the field of aging who have not had any formal training in gerontology and those who would like to enhance their current skills.

8 Medical Coder Certificate Program The health care field is booming! Medical coders play vital roles on teams of health information technicians. They work to keep physicians, patients, hospitals, and insurance programs connected. Medical coding specialists are in such high demand because nearly every visit to the doctor requires properly coded documentation for the doctor to receive payment. The coding specialist assigns and sequences diagnostic and procedural codes using an official, universally recognized coding system. Coders must ensure correct code selection for compliance with federal regulation and insurance requirements. The information compiled by the medical coders is used to prepare statistical reports for use by clinic and hospital administrators for planning, marketing, and other management purposes. Local, state, and federal governments also use this information to identify health care concerns critical to the public at large. This detail-oriented field of health information management requires knowledge of both the medical and business sides of health care. Every insurer from private companies to Medicare has its own forms and unique coding requirements. Multiply this need across every doctor s office, hospital, and health insurance claim in the country, and you ll see why medical coding is one of the hottest careers in America. Individuals interested in medical coding should have a high school diploma or equivalent and must pass examinations offered by the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) and the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) upon completion of the program. Medical coding specialists have a bright future because of increased scrutiny over medical records from the government and insurance companies. In an effort to control costs, complete and accurate records are becoming a necessity in order for hospitals and clinics to receive money from Medicare and Medicaid. As technology changes the world of medical recordkeeping, there will be an increased need for coders with the most current knowledge of new technologies. For more information, please contact Cathy Waters, medical coding program coordinator, at , ext
