Do you enjoy being one of the first in a new highly skilled job? Would
you like to be part of a team providing non-clinical health care
services to children, adults and the elderly? Do you enjoy using
computers as well as interacting with others?
Then you are perfect for the Pennsylvania Institute of Technology’s two-year associate degree in Electronic Health Records.
Remember the doctor’s office visits and seeing the physician or an
assistant recording your health information on paper? Those days are
virtually over. Today, patients’ health records are maintained and
For instance, an injured person is at an emergency room while on
vacation in Florida. The attending physician contacts the patient’s
physician in Philadelphia. In an instant, the health records are
transmitted to the Florida physician so that the patient will receive
the best care. The physician treating the patient has the complete
medical and prescription records eliminating the possible unknown.
Federal law now requires the transmission of medical data by health care
providers for reimbursement especially for federal and state programs.

needs of health care providers and insurance companies – regardless of
