Philippines will be a Busy Medical Transcription Outsourcing Venue by 2008

Philippines Participated in the AHIMA Conference with Health Industry Professionals

In the recently held American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) conference and exhibition, where Philippines joined, the country is expected to bag up deals from various American companies related to Medical transcription outsourcing. This hopes to make the Philippines as the next busy venue for other medical transcription outsourcing jobs which will make us one of the top destinations of the medical transcription industry by 2008.

In the meet-up which comprises both small and medium medical transcription service organizations, AHIMA is said to have passed a grant to these medical transcription service organizations some $1.4 million worth of deals that came from within the association.

Philippines is Soon to be a Top BPO Destination

In the AHIMA, a quote says that, "The reason that we decided for a consortium is to show large companies based in the U.S. that the Philippines has the ability to handle their accounts, and has enough headroom for future requirements" said Raoul Sia, President of Rapid Data. As this will mean bigger opportunities for the Philippine job market and the Philippine BPO professionals this also hopes to balloon up the ever growing medical transcription outsourcing industry this coming 2008. The growth in this specific industry will also put the Philippines as one of the top destinations for both BPO (business process outsourcing) and KPO (knowledge process outsourcing) at the same time this coming year. Furthermore, this specific event expects the country to topple its greatest rival in the BPO and KPO industry which is India.

AHIMA is a pool of dynamic professionals in the health information and management services industry where it represents more than 51,000 health industry specialists that are highly knowledgeable and qualified professionals regarding the industry as they all work throughout the healthcare service.

The annual conventions where the Philippines took part in is for the purpose of service to prospect destinations as well as meet the different decision-makers in the health service industry
