Broaden your career reach with our Electronic Health Records Specialist course
The advent of electronic health records opened up a whole new world in patient information. No longer shackled to just paper, EHR have provided an opportunity in patient care, allowing healthcare providers to more quickly and easily access medical histories, treatment information, test outcomes, and even insurance data. But this process still requires specialists who are trained to be responsible for organizing and maintaining all of these health records, ensuring that they’re accurate, accessible, and secure. They have to be knowledgeable in the classification systems used to code data for insurance and the databases where this information is stored and registered.
- Review records to ensure accuracy
- Track patient outcomes in order to assess quality of care
- Protect patients’ health data to make sure information stays confidential
