The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics found that Medical records and health information technician made a median wage of $39,180 in 2017.

They reported that these technicians earned this wage as they:

  • Review patients’ records for timeliness, completeness, accuracy, and appropriateness of data
  • Organize and maintain data for clinical databases and registries
  • Track patient outcomes for quality assessment
  • Use classification software to assign clinical codes for insurance reimbursement and data analysis
  • Electronically record data for collection, storage, analysis, retrieval, and reporting
  • Maintain confidentiality of patients’ records

And that’s just their pay slips. It doesn’t include benefits, taxes, office expenses and administrative overhead. The true costs can easily exceed $50 per hour.
