Health Information Technician (Current Employee) – Richland, WA – August 1, 2017
A typical day consists of helping a variety of patients whom are needing medical records, access to kchart, transferring records, etc. My specific title releases health information to any clinics/ doctors that are requesting records via fax. We receive hundreds of fax's everyday that are requesting records or information from our 30 + clinics involved with Kadlec including the hospital. Knowledge of each clinic including the hospital is needed in order to orient patients whom are not sure what to do when needing records whether if it is for continuing care, legal matters, insurance, disabilities, social security, etc. Throughout completing my task of sending records we are also taking patient on face to face and phone calls throughout the day. Time management and the ability to multi-task is needed in order to complete your daily goals.
Fast pace and self-task
