MBC117 - Medical Office Administration
This course is designed to give students an opportunity to simulate the daily operations and routine of a medical office. Students are oriented to the work environment, and professionalism is emphasized. The ability to apply a practical approach to this process is further enhanced by an introduction to basic computer skills including keyboarding and word processing. Students also establish the essential techniques for communication in the medical office, especially the ability to triage telephone calls, manage written correspondence, and maintain medical office supply inventories. Particular emphasis will be placed on maintaining patient and office records. A brief overview of ICD-9-CM and CPT coding is addressed and discussion of insurance and billing in the modern medical facility.
