Registered Health Information Technician (RHIT®)

Registered Health Information Technician (RHIT®) Product page 

Registered Health Information Technicians are the authorities on handling the ins and outs of electronic health records (EHR) operations. From maintaining patient health reports to managing classifications to code and categorize patients’ tests and diagnosis for insurance billing persistence, RHITs excel in interacting with healthcare staff and external insurance spokespeople to guarantee that a patient’s journey is well documented. An RHIT also examines patient data, with the purpose of controlling healthcare costs and increasing patient care. Some RHITs specialize in coding or compiling data for particular diseases or illnesses.
