A Healthcare Office Specialist is a respected health-care professional who cooperates effectively with patients and medical-industry personnel in a friendly, non-competitive environment. Often one of the first and last people a patient interacts with, this detail-oriented individual employs expertise in decision-making with patients, understands and processes medical information in a timely manner, and demonstrates proficiency in administrative duties often with little or no supervision in a doctor’s office, clinic, hospital, or other health care facility.
Under the blanket of Medical Records and Health Information Technicians, the demand for Administrative Medical Assistants demonstrates a ‘much faster than average’ growth projection 20 percent from 2008 to 2018* as the need for additional medical personnel with accredited education and training increases.
