Hawaii Pacific Health Health Records Technician - Health Information Services in Honolulu, Hawaii
Founded in 1921, Straub Medical Center includes a 159-bed hospital in Honolulu, a network of neighborhood clinics and a visiting specialist program that reaches throughout the state of Hawai'i. With over 200 physicians who are leaders in their fields, Straub provides its patients with diagnoses and treatments for more than 32 different medical specialties, including bone and joint, heart, cancer, endocrinology/diabetes, family medicine, gastroenterology, geriatric medicine, internal medicine, vascular and urology.

Health Information Services (HIS) processes patient medical records and releases health information to patients, physicians, and other outside facilities for treatment, payment, or review. HIS is the custodian and gatekeeper for privacy of the organization’s medical records and also generates the coding procedures for data collection, research, and reimbursement. With the widespread computerization of health records and other information sources, including hospital administration functions and health human resources information, health informatics and health information technology are being increasingly used in the health care sector.
As a Health Record Technician, you will play a key role in ensuring that patient records are maintained and protected according to the quality and confidentiality standards of Straub’s Information Services. This includes assigning diagnosis and procedure codes and abstracting information from health records to provide an accurate and complete coded profile for reimbursement and research purposes. We are looking for someone meticulous and precise, with outstanding organizational and data management skills, the ability to work independently with minimal supervision and a commitment to delivering the highest quality health care to Hawai‘i’s people.
