Health unit coordinators help maintain healthcare facilities by assisting nurses and other staff members in completing non-clinical tasks.
Often acting as a liaison between patients and medical staff, health unit coordinators may be responsible for a variety of tasks. Although responsibilities vary depending on the facility, typical duties include setting up admittance charts, data entry, ordering lab tests, maintaining patient records and managing facility communications.
Health unit coordinator jobs can be found in a variety of medical facilities, including hospitals, clinics, private practices and more. Although these positions are usually clerical, they often involve patient interaction, so coordinators must have strong verbal and written communication skills.
Currently, many facilities provide on the job training. However, candidates are increasingly required to have certification from the National Association of Health Unit Coordinators (NAHUC).
