Every time a patient receives health care, a record is maintained of the observations, medical or surgical interventions and treatment outcomes. This record includes information that the patient provides concerning his or her symptoms and medical history, the results of examinations, reports of x-rays and laboratory tests, diagnoses and treatment plans. Medical records and health information technicians organize and evaluate these records for completeness and accuracy.

Technicians assemble patient's health information, making sure the patient's initial medical charts are complete, that all forms are completed and properly identified and authenticated and that all necessary information is in the computer. They regularly communicate with physicians and other health care professionals to clarify diagnoses or to obtain additional information.

All medical information regarding your hospital visits are protected for your privacy. No information will be released without your consent, except under certain circumstances defined by HIPAA guidelines.
