Medical Records Technician *
A medical records technician (MRT) is one of the few positions in healthcare that does not include contact with patients and yet is one of the most important jobs in the industry. An MRT is responsible for entering patients' medical records into a computer database so that they are accurate, up-to-date, and accessible to those who need them at all times. The MRT will work with many types of medical records and database software packages. The work is primarily computer-based, although an MRT also communicates with doctors and nurses to clarify any unclear items as needed about patient details or finding and delivering patient information to caregivers. In addition to medical settings, MRT’s work for insurance companies, governmental agencies, and academic institutions that analyze health data.
