To complete this assignment, do the following:
- Research positions in the revenue cycle using your course readings, the AHIMA Career Map (http://hicareers.com/CareerMap/), or other resources you may find on the Internet. From this research, select three different positions that interest you. Identify the job title and provide a brief overview of the responsibilities and which component of the revenue cycle you think this position belongs in.
- Select one revenue cycle position from a career job site where open positions are listed, such as Indeed.com, Simply Hired, or AHIMA Career Assist (http://ahima.org). (On the AHIMA home page, click Career & Student Center, and then click Career Assist: Job Bank).
Prepare a short narrative describing the one position you selected in #2 above. The narrative summary of your research should include the following:
- Job title

- Type of organization (for example, acute care, vendor or contract service, ambulatory care, physician clinic, academic institution)
In your narrative, comment on why you chose this position, what you found interesting about the role, and how and where it fits in the revenue cycle.
