Medical Office Assistant with CCHST
Medical Office Assistants (MOA) are relied upon by physicians, medical staff, and patients to keep office operations running smoothly. In addition to performing administrative and supportive functions, they must know medical terminology and be familiar with various medical procedures and healthcare business practices. They often assist physicians by preparing treatment rooms for clinical examinations, helping with medical procedures, taking vital signs, and providing pre-emptive care.
MOAs are the first point of contact for a physician’s office, medical clinic, hospital, diagnostic center, or health care agency. They welcome patients to a physician’s office, answer the phones, schedule appointments, assist with submitting prescriptions, referrals, and handle insurance forms, claims, and handle drug manufacturer calls.
Medical Office Assistants process all information pertaining to a patient’s file, including payments and insurance claims, manage the office database, and manage the physician’s schedule. They write and prepare reports, transcribe and type medical reports, submit specialist referrals, and coordinate diagnostic tests, treatments, and other necessary care with appropriate facilities and professionals.
Our program is designed to provide students with the knowledge, experience, and confidence.
