With estimates of their numbers ranging from one million to almost four million people, allied health care personnel make up a large part of the health care work force. Yet, they are among the least studied elements of our health care system. This book describes the forces that drive the demand for and the supply of allied health practitioners--forces that include demographic change, health care financing policies, and career choices available to women. Exploring such areas as credentialing systems and the employment market, the study offers a broad range of recommendations for action in both the public and private sectors, so that enough trained people will be in the right place at the right time.TABLE 4-5 Major Places of Wage and Salary Employment for Medical Record Technicians, 1986 Actual and Projected for the Year ... 2000 Percentagea Total 39, 900 69, 800 employmentb Total wage and salary 39, 900 100.0 69, 800 100.0 employment Hospitals, public and ...
