Electronic Health Records Specialist

The mission of the program is to prepare individuals to manage electronic medical records and the coding and billing of patient services in health related settings.  Through hands-on, simulated exercises, students learn to create patient records, collect demographic and insurance information, perform coding and billing of patient services, audit patient records, and process release of information requests. Students must successfully pass the National Health Career Association’s “Certified Electronic Health Records Specialist” exam to graduate. Graduates may seek entry-level employment in hospitals, medical offices, clinical care facilities, group practices, and medical insurance offices.

This diploma program is designed to prepare students for an entry level position in the field of Electronic Health Records. The externship for this program is available during the day only.
