Standard Occupational Classification

Docket Number 08‐0679 : Response to Comments on 2010 SOC : U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics

Docket No. 08-0679 requested (1) changing the title of the broad group 29-2070 Medical Records and Health Information Technicians to "Medical Records and Health Information Management Specialists" and adding a new detailed occupation, "Medical Records and Health Information Managers" to this broad group; and (2) moving Medical Records and Health Information Managers currently classified in 11-9111 Medical and Health Services Managers to the new detailed occupation "Medical Records and Health Information Managers." The SOCPC did not accept these recommendations. Managers and specialists should not be classified in the same major group, based on Classification Principle 2 which states that occupations are classified based on work performed. Medical and Health Information Managers are appropriately classified in 11-9111 Medical and Health Services Managers.
