Cons: insurance packages, time off, job advancement, raises
A typical busy or slow day depends on the number amount of discharges from the previous day. I have learned how to reconcile charts in order, ROI, audit, add deficiencies, manage my own office. My manager is very easy going and friendly. I currently do not have co-workers within the HIM department at my facility, but I work with them via e-mail or phone – more... when needed. The hardest part of my job is reminding physicians on a weekly basis to dictate or sign off on deficiencies or delinqunt records. The most enjoyable part of my job is working in an atmosphere without a lot of distraction. – less
Analyst / University Medical Center (Former Employee), Lebanon, TN – June 20, 2014
Pros: close to home and good pay for the amount of work required
Cons: dull and no hope of advancement
This job went electronic during my three years and the job became very boring and mundane. I enjoy a busier job with more of a challenge. The management was kind and understanding and I learned that spending my whole day in front of a computer was not for me.
I enjoyed my job very much I worked with a great group of people, I learned more each day. During my time of employment we went through the transition of going from paper charts to electronic charting working with professionals of the software which helped me to learn more about it.

Pros: many learning opportunites
Cons: lasted only six weeks
Life Circles in non-traditional healthcare facility. I performed my six week technical internship there. The HIM director/internship coordinator was an excellent teacher. I was allowed to sit in on and take the meeting minutes from many committee meetings. The hardest part of my time there was the commute. I got a chance to do several chart audits. – more...
