Graduate from The New Community College with a major in health information technology, and you’ll be ready to launch your career as a registered health information technician.
As a professional with an associate’s degree, you might find yourself with one of these job titles:
- health data analyst
- insurance claims analyst
- records technician specialist
- clinical coding specialist
- patient information coordinator
While you’ll likely work in a hospital, you’ll also find job opportunities in physicians’ offices, nursing homes, home health agencies and public health agencies.
The job prospects for registered health information technicians are outstanding. Employment is expected to increase, and with more hospitals, medical clinics and doctors than any other city in the country, New York City is home to much of this job growth.
