A World Health Organization article recently noted that a demographic revolution is underway throughout the world noting that world-wide, there are around 600 million persons aged 60 years and over; this total will double by 2025 and will reach virtually two billion by 2050 – the vast majority of them in the developing world.
That article is an example of how seriously international governments, social welfare systems, and health care providers are studying and planning for this revolution. The impact will obviously impact health care, its cost, availability, manpower, providers and facilities, all of which will affect the delivery of health care as it compares to current standards. Medical coding and medical transcription specialists will be in high demand.
