Health Information Management and Technologies deliver a primary service to hospitals,
physician’s offices and outpatient clinics. Whenever a patient receives a healthcare service
electronic health records are employed to manage health condition and treatment information for
insurance and reimbusment purposes. The healthcare service provider needs to document the services and
convert them into a billing claim. Health Information Management and Technologies manage and
organize the health information databases and registries to assuring the accuracy, accessibility,
privacy and security of a patients health information. They abstract the data from documentation and
use classification software to assign the most appropriate medical codes and make sure the practice
receives payment for the services the health care provider performs. Health Information Management and
Technologies routinely assess medical records for timeliness, completeness, accuracy, and
appropriateness of data. Health Information Management and Technologies are typically
employed in mostly all healthcare facilities.
Health Information Technicians held about 186,300 jobs in 2012. The demand for health services is
expected to increase as the population ages. An aging population will need more medical tests,
treatments, and procedures. This will mean more claims for reimbursement from insurance companies.
Additional records, coupled with widespread use of electronic health records (EHRs) by all types of
health care providers, could lead to an increased need for technicians to organize and manage the
associated information in all areas of the health care industry. Prospects will be best for those with
a associate degree in health information. As EHR systems continue to become more common, Health
Information Management and Technologies Specialists with computer skills will
be needed to use them. Most Health Information Management and Technologies
Specialists work in hospitals or physicians’ offices. OtEHRs work in nursing care facilities or for
government entities. Technicians typically work at desks or in offices and may spend many hours in
front of computer monitors.
The median annual wage for Health Information Technicians was $34,160 in May 2012. The median wage
is the wage at which half the workers in an occupation earned more than that amount and half earned
less. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $22,250, and the top 10 percent earned more than
