MedStar’s CEO, Ms. Judilyn Canete, spoke at the event, discussing Digital Career Opportunities in Healthcare Information. She was joined by DICT USEC Atty. Jocelle Batapa-Sigue, city mayors from CaSaMa, DICT, DTI, DOST, government officials, and private companies.

The Healthcare industry is booming and expected to reach $449.6 billion by 2026. This growth creates numerous job opportunities for Filipinos, especially since 85% of outsourcing jobs in the Philippines come from the United States.

This presents a chance for healthcare professionals to switch careers and become Health Information Management (HIM) experts, specializing in roles such as Medical Coding, Billing, Electronic Health Record Management, and Virtual Healthcare Assistance.
