    Program Description

    Our Health Information Specialist course provides strategies and concepts related to the comprehensive management of health information. Students will learn how to organize and secure health information to improve the quality, safety, and efficiency of the health care delivery system. With an overview of the health care industry and strategies for recording and securing patient processing records, this course equips the learner with tools and techniques for improving the health care system by effectively managing health care data.

Medical administrative assistants primarily work in doctor’s offices, clinics, outpatient settings, hospitals, and other healthcare settings.
