Medical Records and Health Information Technicians

Employment: Medical records and health information technicians held about 172,500 jobs in 2008. About 39 percent of jobs were in hospitals. Health information technicians work at a number of healthcare providers such as offices of physicians, nursing care facilities, outpatient care centers, and home healthcare services. Technicians also may be employed outside of healthcare facilities, such as in Federal Government agencies.

Employment is expected to grow much faster than the average. Job prospects should be very good, particularly for technicians with strong computer software skills. Entrants usually have an associate degree. This is one of the few health-related occupations in which there is no direct hands-on patient care.
