Medical office specialists, also in high demand, are required to obtain more knowledge than ever to perform well in their positions. With the increase in Federal mandates in the healthcare field, these workers are charged with much more than just answering phones and scheduling appointments. “Nothing is simple in a medical office, each employee in the facility must obtain and maintain an expansive knowledge base in any position, even those that seem unimportant to the patient” said Jennifer Roberts, MHA, CPC. “Practitioners depend on these key positions to keep the facility finances seamless, without a well trained staff, patient and financial flow could come to a halt”.
