Medical Assisting Training and Background
The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that medical assistants play a crucial role in medical facilities by handling administrative and clinical duties.
In the healthcare industry, medical assistants provide assistance both to doctors and to patients. Among the basic medical tasks these individuals can perform are taking vital signs, administering medications as directed by a physician, or taking medical histories. In addition to scheduling appointments, billing insurance companies, and completing paperwork, they assist clinic office staff as well.
The path to becoming a medical assistant is much faster than pursuing a medical degree or nursing degree. A nurse usually completes four years of postsecondary education, while a doctor must complete 12 years of study. For medical assistants to become certified medical assistants (CMAs), all they need is a high school diploma and a medical assistant training program. On-the-job training is a major part of becoming a medical assistant.
This field offers rapid career growth. Between 2019 and 2029, 139,200 jobs are expected to be added to this field, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (2021). There are various salaries in this field based on your location, your experience, your schooling, and your certification. An average medical assistant earns $42,000 per year in the US, according to the BLS May 2021.
A medical assistant’s career is generally extremely rewarding. Medical assistants should be familiar with all aspects of their role before considering a career in this field. At Career College of the Pacific, you’ll learn about the job scope, specializations, common employers, work environment, and certification and licensure requirements for medical assistants.
Medical Billing and Coding Training and Programs
Coding and billing are two different processes, but they are both essential. Billing utilizes the codes extracted from medical records and clinical documentation to create insurance claims and bills for patients. Coding medical records and clinical documentation involves extracting pertinent information accurately for billing purposes. A billing and coding specialist who is multi-skilled and knowledgeable in both fields is an asset to any medical practice.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS 2017), medical billers and coders work in a variety of medical environments. Because medical billing and coding are computer-based professions, many of them work from home. The training that they receive can be obtained online from a variety of medical billing and coding programs all across the country. Patients’ privacy must be protected regardless of where these professionals work.
Health record specialists manage and maintain a patient’s electronic health record, ensuring that the information is accurate and current. Patient, physician, and insurance professionals interact with them to provide the best medical care. Medical coding is also used to submit reimbursement claims.
