Anurag Mehta, President and Co-Founder, Omega Healthcare comments, “Gopi and I foresaw the enormous potential in the offshored healthcare services space in the early 2000s, when the industry was still in its nascent stage, and persisted to grow the organization into the largest in the country – both in terms of revenues and headcount.”
A unique initiative from Omega has been OMCA or Omega Medical Coding Academy, a leading name in the medical coding training industry, which was recently launched in Bengaluru after successfully running in Chennai and Trichy for almost 2 years. Set up with an objective of imparting necessary skills to recently-graduated students especially from life sciences, OMCA today creates hundreds of job-ready individuals empowered to handle cutting-edge coding systems which are implemented among the US healthcare providers. While this move has generated employment opportunities for freshers and a new career stream, OMCA in parallel contributes to the growth and success of the broader industry in India –outside of Omega Healthcare, by creating a steady pipeline of high-calibre individuals who can immediately go live on critical coding projects.
