Health Information Specialist Training in DFW
APPROVED BY THE TEXAS WORKFORCE COMMISSION
As a Health Information Specialist, you are a problem-solving, multitasking enthusiast with a passion for working with people. In this role, you will work in tandem with medical coders and health information technicians in handling sensitive medical data, typically working in the front or back office of a doctor’s office or clinic. This is a great position to begin a medical career; not only is it a challenging profession, but also an opportunity to gain knowledge of the medical community and discover other future opportunities.
The specific responsibilities of the health information specialist will vary from one office to another. Health Information positions require specialized training along with basic knowledge of:
- Microsoft Office software,
- medical terminology,
- medical law & ethics,
- communication skills,
