Your role in health care is to assemble patients' health information which includes:

medical history, symptoms, examination results, diagnostic tests, treatment methods, and all

other healthcare provider services. You organize and manage health information data by

ensuring its quality, accuracy, accessibility, and security. You regularly communicate with the

physicians and other healthcare professionals to clarify the diagnoses or to obtain additional

information about the patient. Your duties may vary depending on how big or small the facility

is that you are working at and where you are placed in that facility.

Some Requirements

Some requirements for schooling:

Medical records and health information technicians generally have an associate degree.

Typical coursework in health information technology includes medical terminology,

anatomy and physiology, health data requirements and standards, clinical classification

and coding systems, data analysis, healthcare reimbursement methods, database security

and management, and quality improvement methods. Applicants can improve their

chances of admission into a postsecondary program by taking biology, math, chemistry,

health, and computer science courses in high school.
