Electronic Health Records

The Healthcare employee with training in Electronic Health Records Specialists performs routine clerical and organizational tasks. EHR will become the primary means of documenting, transmitting, and securing patient information. A basic knowledge of medical terminology, electronic health records, and hospital or laboratory procedures is preferred. The nation is entering a new era of health care where providers must use electronic health records to improve patients’ health and the way health care is delivered in this country.
