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.
