Medical Records Specialist

Through both digital databases and physical records departments, medical records specialists maintain accurate and up-to-date filing systems. After scanning documents to check for coding errors, medical records specialists are responsible for storing files in an organized system where they can easily be retrieved in the future. 

Similarly, medical records specialists often physically or digitally pull records to assist with insurance verification and specific physician requests. Overseeing storage facilities filled with sensitive information, medical records specialists must strictly adhere to HIPAA regulations to uphold document security and privacy.
