This certificate program provides students the opportunity to create, collect, manage, retrieve, and access medical records using an electronic records system. Students will use software to create/edit patient demographic and provider files used in a medical care setting.

Medical Records and Health Information Technicians organize and manage health information data by ensuring its quality, accuracy, accessibility, and security in both paper and electronic system. They use various classification systems to code and categorize patient information for reimbursement purposes, for databases and registries, and to maintain patients' medical and treatment histories.
