It’s in demand because the growing use of electronic records increases demand for people with the knowledge of technology and computer software, as it relates to medical health records. The reason for this growth is due to the large aging population. This population requires more medical procedures, which will lead to the need of health information clerks to organize and handle medical records. Also the changes in salaries in this position have changed; in 2014 median pay was 35,900 dollars per year while in 2016 it’s 38,813 dollars per year.
Some of the more memorable and interesting facts from the reading is that health care initiatives publish quality information about providers and treatment options. The availability of these information allow consumers to make informed choices as well as allowing other providers to see how their care compared to others. I’m surprised by the transparency of these information because it turned the health field into a trading market. It also feels like the health field has been tainted with financial incentives. However, these competitions are good strategies to promote “survival-of-the-fitness,” so everyone can receive the best care possible.

At this rate the U.S. Census Bureau estimates that by the year 2056 there will be ten billion humans inhabiting Earth (U.S. Census Bureau).
Longer life expectancy is arguably one of humanity biggest achievements. Medical progress, public-health efforts, rising standards of living, better education, healthier nutrition and a more hygienic lifestyle in the past century lead to an substantial increase in life expectancy worldwide. (1) In developed countries around 30 years in life expectancy have been gained, in these societies the oldest-old group – i.e., those aged 80 and over – have been the most rapidly expanding segment of the population over the past decades. (2,3) It is expected that by 2050, the worldwide population of older adults (more than 60 years old) may grow to nearly 2 billion, with 80% of that population living in developing countries. (4) However, humanity’s big achievement has its pitfalls; the years gained in life expectancy might be years with disability, since disability increases with age, and therefore people are not only living longer but are also experiencing morbidity and disability over a longer period.
