Medical Office Administration Program
Program Availability: All Locations
The Medical Office Administration Program is available at all Interactive College of Technology campuses, both as an associate degree (area of emphasis) or short-term diploma program of study. Both Medical Office Administration (MOA) programs prepare students for essential careers in healthcare, the fastest growing segment of the American labor force.
The MOA diploma program is constructed to provide the graduates with the general knowledge and specific skills needed to obtain entry-level employment in one of the fastest growing occupations in the healthcare environment. Aside from patient care and patient services, the processing of medical documents is a critical task that requires a well trained professional. Medical coding and billing are just the beginning.
Individuals with titles like Medical Office Administration Specialist, Medical Records and Health Information Administrative Specialists or Office Administrative Specialist all perform a variety of duties. Assembling patient’s health information including medical history, examination results, diagnostic tests, treatment methods and other documents are just the tip of the iceberg. MOA graduates are often called on to use electronic health records systems, software for appointment scheduling, diagnostic test scheduling, billing and other accounting services.
ICT’s MOA program includes preparation for two industry certifications issued by the National Healthcareer Association, which are requirements for graduation.
- CMAA – Medical Administrative Assistant
- CEHRS – Electronic Health Records Specialist
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.
