What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
Medical Records / Health Information Technician in Stuart:
"It's All In The Details."
Must be detail oriented, multi-tasker. I know it sounds cliche. Bottom line "if it isn't documented, it didn't happen". Must be always willing to learn new P&P, HIPPA law and compliance with Standards and Practices. Degree? While a degree looks good on paper, if you don't keep up with current practices, you're degree is worth nothing. I have always been a BIG believer in, having been one myself, of the OJT (on the job) employee. Learn daily, take constructive criticism, vow always to improve oneself. If this is a job for you, remember it's all about the details!
