Learn to Manage a Doctor’s Office at Everest College in Hayward
Posted Friday, Oct 26, 2012 by
A doctor’s office is a place of healing. It is also a place of business. Doctors often hire a staff to handle day-to-day office operations so they can devote needed time to their patients. This staff usually includes medical administrative assistants.
What Does a Medical Administrative Assistant Do?
In many ways, medical administrative assistants are like traditional administrative assistants or secretaries. Their duties usually include taking phone calls, setting appointments, ordering office supplies, keeping records and paying bills. But because they work in a health care setting, medical administrative assistants may also create and manage medical records, work with insurance companies and deal with drug company representatives.
Medical administrative assistants need to have some basic medical education to do their jobs properly. They have to understand the field’s specialized vocabulary and the industry’s rules and regulations.
