The healthcare field is one of the fastest growing segments of the labor force. Aside from patient care and patient services, the processing of documents is a critical task that requires a well trained professional like a Medical Office Administration Specialist.
Medical Records and Health Information Administrative Specialists perform a variety of duties. Included in these duties is the assembling of patient’s health information including medical history, examination results, diagnostic tests, treatment methods and other healthcare services. The Office Administrative Specialist is increasingly called on to use electronic health records systems. These systems cover a variety of services such as appointment scheduling, diagnostic test scheduling and billing and accounting services.
Abundant career possibilities are available for the graduate with excellent keyboarding and word processing skills as well as experience in medical transcription, terminology, and medical office procedures. In addition, with new healthcare and insurance requirements, medical office personnel need to be versed in government and insurance regulations as well as compliance issues such as HIPAA.
