Electronic Medical Records technicians review medical records to ascertain accuracy with regard to treatment procedures and coding, preparation of files for long term storage, compilations of statistics and data for use by other medical personnel, preparation of medical reports, and provision of access to medical information by appropriate parties (third-party payers, attorneys, etc.). This program is designed to prepare students for entry-level jobs in health care. To achieve this goal, all students complete an internship experience in a health care environment. Upon completion of the certificate, students can take the CMAA/CBCS exam through the National Healthcareer Association to become a certified Billing Coding Specialist. The student will also be eligible to sit for the EHR (Electronic Health Records) exam to become an Electronic Health Records Specialist.

Graduates of this program will find jobs in hospitals, clinics, health planning agencies, insurance companies, nursing homes, health maintenance organizations, and ambulatory care centers.

Electronic Medical Records students must pass all courses in the curriculum with at least a C and maintain a minimum term GPA of 2.0 to proceed through the program. Students must place into Beginning Algebra on COMPASS test or remediate to that level.

*Students considering the Nursing program should take HEA 1225 ²Prerequisite: BOC 1201 or concurrent enrollment
