    Depending on the hospital I think the pay is somewhere around $9-12/hr. Medical records clerks do filing in patient's charts after the doctors have reviewed lab tests, Xrays, etc. They also send out records to any doctor that the patient might follow-up with after an ER visit.

    Pulls files, organizes information, possible data input. Depending on your location, you can make around $20K-$40K/year. My mother works in a large hospital in CT and makes around $35K.
