                  Medical Assisting

                  In order to serve the patient successfully the MA needs to have the ability to conceptualize role and responsibility. The MA is a liaison between the patient and provider. The MA understands that they are here to "serve" the patient. They must understand that resources in healthcare are limited. Concepts of anticipation and preparation for patient visits are essential for success. Pertinent and successful patient care interactions require the ability to apply concepts of critical thinking. The MA must independently understand scope and how to determine safe practice technique. They must have the ability to comprehend that provider success and efficiency is coupled with their ability to understand patient flow, anticipate patient needs and to appropriately work to the maximum limit of certification. The MA is responsible for asking "what can I do to facilitate meeting the needs of the patient?" at each visit. They must have the ability to comprehend, understand and value their role and that of those whom they work with. The MA is responsible for gathering all necessary information such that the provider visit is focused on patient care and clinical diagnosis.

The following are some of the main duties: participate in huddles with providers to anticipate needs/orders/procedures for the day, view daily schedule throughout the day to track when patients arrive in order to communicate/assign, read, investigate and forward messages to appropriate provider (if needed), contact patient when messages have been answered and record message in EMR, call pharmacies to call in prescriptions that have been approved in EMR or refax through electronic fax, facilitate care management calls if necessary, expedite written orders from provider (no verbal orders of any kind), fax or mail paperwork to pharmacies, other medical centers and/or patients.
