What Does A Medical Scribe and Administrative Professional Do?

The demand for Medical Scribes in the United States continues to grow, as more and more physicians and health care providers realize the benefits scribes bring to their practice. Traditionally, for every hour that physicians provide direct face-to-face time to patients, two more hours are spent on electronic health records and other clerical work. A growing strategy to decrease this clerical burden is to use medical scribes trained to document patient encounters in real-time. 

In addition to preparing for the AMSP certification exam, the role of a scribe will include clerical and administrative functions. Graduates are also prepared to sit for the Certified Medical Administrative Assistant (CMAA) exam sponsored by the National Healthcareer Association (NHA). By obtaining certification as a CMAA, students demonstrate to employers that they can keep the medical office running efficiently and effectively. 

Where Does A Medical Scribe and Administrative Professional Work?

A Medical Laboratory Assistant typically works in healthcare settings such as hospitals, medical laboratories, diagnostic centers, research facilities, or clinics.
