Medical Informatics

Medical informatics is an emerging field that involves the maintenance of healthcare records. Formal training programs are aimed at both the working professional and entry-level workers with no prior healthcare industry experience. Read on to find out about education and career options.

Inside Medical Informatics

Health information technicians obtain and administer patient records, including test results, medical histories and treatment plans. Because most of this information is stored electronically, technicians should be proficient in the use of medical records software. Some of these professionals have a specialization, like medical coding for payment reimbursement or information maintenance for regional and national cancer databases.
