What is an Administrative Medical Assistant?
Administrative medical assistants work hard to ensure that a medical office runs smoothly for patients and medical professionals. Often, the administrative medical assistant will be the first person a patient meets when they arrive for an appointment. At the front desk, the administrative medical assistant directs the patient to complete necessary forms and collects their health insurance information. When a patient calls the office, an administrative medical assistant can help them schedule an appointment. After a patient leaves, the administrative medical assistant keeps the office organized by updating and filing the doctor's notes in the patient's file. Employers have many job titles for administrative medical assistants, including patient access representative, patient service representative, unit secretary, office coordinator or patient care tech.
