PCI’s Health Information Technician program prepares students to be vital members of the healthcare team. Students learn how to compile, process and maintain patient medical records. Skills are also taught in the area of medical, administrative, ethical, legal and regulatory requirements.
“For students interested in medical billing and coding, our Health Information Technician program puts them at the forefront of health information systems,” said Modisette. “Our program graduates will be well prepared for the shift to digitizing of medical records.”
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, ten of the 20 fastest-growing occupations are healthcare related. Job prospects should be very good for medical records and health information technicians, particularly for technicians with strong computer software skills.
