The Electronic Medical Records (EMR) program prepares students for entry-level medical records positions in hospitals, clinics, health planning agencies, insurance companies, nursing homes, health maintenance organizations, and ambulatory care centers, among others. EMR Technicians review medical records with accuracy, prepare files for long-term storage, compile statistics and data for use by other medical personnel, prepare medical reports, and provide access to medical information for appropriate parties, such as third-party payers and attorneys. Upon completion of the certificate, students may take the CMAA/CBCS/CEHRS exam through the National Healthcareer Association to become a certified Billing Coding Specialist.
