Administrative Medical Assistants find career opportunities in offices of general medical and surgical hospitals, physicians, chiropractors, outpatient care centers and many other medical facilities. They are responsible for understanding automated medical equipment, patient care, and medical office protocols.
This course will provide participants the skills needed for in-demand jobs. The training will introduce participants to medical terminology, privacy and risk management, and will cover medical insurance billing and coding with emphasis placed on the use of computers in the medical office, telephone techniques, and the importance of HIPAA compliance.
Upon successful completion of the course, participants will be prepared for entry level positions handling front office responsibilities in a medical office setting. Participants will also be prepared to take the National Healthcareer Association Certified Medical Administrative Assistant certification exam.
