The hiring process varies depending on the position but typically includes an online application, phone interview, and in-person/virtual interviews for skills evaluation, skills assessment, and reference checks. Some places also require background and drug tests.
As population aging causes more people to visit healthcare facilities and undergo medical tests and procedures, more records must be organized and filed away for reimbursement from private and public insurance policies, creating the need for more health information managers and technicians.

Plaintiffs allege that in the early 2000s, Sutter started mandating that all its hospitals sign “systemwide contracts,” which require health plans to include all Sutter hospitals as part of their provider networks or risk revoking their contract with each hospital.
