ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORDS
Medical records and health information technicians, commonly referred to as health information technicians, organize and manage health information data. They ensure its quality, accuracy, accessibility, and security in both paper and electronic systems. They use various classification systems to code and categorize patient information for insurance reimbursement purposes, for databases and registries, and to maintain patients’ medical and treatment histories.
Health Information Technicians document patients’ health information, including their medical history, symptoms, examination test results, treatments, and other healthcare services that are provided to patients. Their duties vary with the size of the facility in which they work.
OCCEPD Electronic Health Record Specialist Certification track prepares trainees for the National Health Association Certified Electronic Health Records certification exam.
