Two Career Areas: Medical Administrative and Business Office Support

The Medical Administrative field includes the increasingly important areas of Medical Billing/Coding and (EHR) Electronic Healthcare Records Office Assistant. These areas of the Healthcare Industry are becoming rapidly more critical to the delivery of Healthcare. The role of Medical EHR Administrative positions has expanded to include updating, managing, and protecting the privacy of the patient’s medical record. All aspects of Healthcare depend on these positions on a day to day basis. Some of the work settings are: hospitals, doctors’ and dentists’ offices, clinics, nursing homes, and medical insurance companies. Although work procedures may differ from place to place many seek employees with skills related to competency, accuracy, and attention to detail and the ability to master medical terminology and technology.

Bookkeeping and Office Support are areas that every business needs. The demand for these jobs has increased with advances in technology, and more complicated business procedures. Competent Bookkeeping and Office professionals need to know how to handle multiple responsibilities and be detailed orientated. Some of the duties involved in these professions are: working with business productivity tools, accounting, preparing accounts payable and receivable, payroll, and financial reports. Analytical skills are an asset in these positions and contribute to the success of an office professional.
