The field of medical records is growing rapidly. The Health Information Assistant program provides students with knowledge of the duties and responsibilities of health care managers. Through the use of textbooks, applications, and simulations, students are given the opportunity to develop the skills required for this field. These skills include ICD 10 CM and CPT coding, insurance billing, medical transcription, records management, and reception area responsibilities.
Another offering in the Health Information Assistant program is an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Business Technology with an option in Medical Records and Health Information with specific courses taken at either the Beebe or Searcy campus locations. This program takes two years to complete with the student taking courses on both campuses.
Students will have three (3) years from the date of enrollment to complete all requirements of the program. A student re-entering after the three-year time period will have to repeat all courses in the program
