The job outlook for healthcare administrators is strong, with the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) projecting 56,300 new healthcare jobs through 2024. BLS reported that there were more than 333,000 medical and health service manager jobs in 2014. A projected growth of 17%, much faster than average, through 2024 means many more people will be needed to manage patient health information. As the baby boomer generation ages and we stay active longer in life, the health industry overall will continue to grow rapidly in coming years.
