AAPC Online Courses - CPC or CPC-H?

Hello everyone, I'd like to first thank you all for providing such valuable information to those of us looking to start a new career.

I currently work full time in a non-medical field and am looking for a fresh start, so online is the best choice for me.  From what I've gathered, the AAPC course comes the most highly recommended, but I'm a little confused as to which would be the best to start with?  I understand that one is specialized for Physician Offices and the other for Outpatient Facilities, but if I were to take the CPC-H course, would I not be properly trained to work in an office setting or vice versa?  Does one course provide more or less knowledge and training than the next?  What are the advantages and disadvantages to each?

Any information or advise you guys have would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks for your time!
