In addition, statistical information was displayed using SHP data and the Midas Report, revealing how Vanguard Hospital and Home

Many years ago I chose my studies to begin a career in the medical field. My original goal was to become a Pediatrician. However, at the end of my bachelor’s degree and after many hours spent volunteering at Miami Children’s Hospital, I decided that I wanted a career that would give me more patient provider interaction.

The field of healthcare administration is growing at a steady pace to bring about efficient service to all the patients (Harris, 2015). Currently, many specialists have emerged to ensure good health to all individuals at affordable rates. For instance, there is the healthcare documentation specialist, formally known as medical transcriptionists, who are highly-skilled health personnel, dealing with the process of transcribing, verifying, or converting spoken (voice-recorded reports) as dictated by a healthcare professional (Skurka, 2017). The prepared report henceforth becomes part of the permanent health record or history of the patient that can be used in future reference.
