Health Information Administrators
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     Medical records are important. They are necessary in order to help the patient. They also help the doctor make the right decisions for the patient. Technology has changed the way these records are kept. In addition, in this day and age, these records are often used by insurance companies, law firms, accounting firms, and health data organizations. Who plans, organizes, and manages this health information? Health information administrators do.
 
2     Health information administrators were once known as medical record administrators. On the simplest level, they are responsible for maintaining and securing patient records. They also must keep up with new technology and ever-changing laws.
 
3     Education and organizational ability are essential to this field. Only in some small doctor's offices might on-the-job experience be enough. After graduating from high school, it is important to get a bachelor's degree. Courses in this study would include medical terminology, health information systems, health law, statistics, and quality management. This will usually help the individual get an entry-level position. A master's degree is expected in most positions and for advancement. Graduate programs normally go for two or three years and may include supervised experience of about a year. Master's degrees include the areas of health services administration, long-term care administration, health sciences, public health, public administration, and business administration. A licensing exam for certification is required if one is employed in a nursing care facility.
