Yes and in medical transcription too. You do not do hands on patient care. Now, can you get CERTIFICATION through AHIMA is another question. I've never seen any criminal background check type of questions on their applications. I know that www.med-certification.com doesn't require a criminal background check. You can also work in the field in a doctors office w/o any certification, but most hospitals do want the AHIMA certification or the CPC.
