Via De Ventura, Suite 126 Scottsdale AZ Phone: (480) or Toll Free Fax: (480) General Inquiries: Student Name: Start & End Dates: / / to / / Course Code: SDICMAA Program Duration: 9 Months Student Tuition: $2,845 MEDICAL OFFICE SPECIALIST CERTIFICATE A Medical Administrative Assistant is a versatile professional. The duties that are performed vary not only from office to office but even within the same office. Medical Administrative Assistants perform routine duties within the offices of many types of health professionals, including physicians, chiropractors, cardiologists and others. In addition, individuals can accomplish various jobs in the hospital environment, and some are employed by freestanding emergency centers and surgery centers. Opportunities for Certified Medical Administrative Assistants are growing because of the constant change within the medical profession and the surge of cross-training, which means that one individual is trained to do a variety of duties. Certified Medical Administrative Assistants perform many duties such as greeting patients as they arrive, obtain basic registration information, assemble patient s medical records, office accounting, filing, scheduling appointments, handle all correspondence and schedule outpatient procedures and consultations. In addition, they must have a basic knowledge of procedure and diagnostic coding, the ability to complete insurance forms and to determine insurance coverage and limitations for the patient. This course will teach you the practical real-world skills essential for success in the healthcare field. This completely inclusive course consists of Medical Terminology, Medical Front Office Skills, EHR/EMR for the Medical Office and the Administrative Medical Assistant. You will learn MedTrak electronic records system used in many medical offices. In addition, upon

2 completion of all courses, you will sit for your CMAA (Certified Medical Administrative Assistant) Examination through the National Healthcareer Association. The Job Outlook Employment of health information technicians is projected to grow 22 percent from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations. The demand for health services is expected to increase as the population ages. An aging population will need more medical tests, treatments, and procedures. This will mean more claims for reimbursement from insurance companies. Additional records, coupled with widespread use of electronic health records (EHRs) by all types of healthcare providers, could lead to an increased need for technicians to organize and manage the associated information in all areas of the healthcare industry.
