Program Description: The Medical Office Specialist Program is a comprehensive program designed to assist students in gaining the skills and procedures necessary to become effective employees in the medical office. Students of the program will learn office procedures, basic anatomy, medical terminology, medical insurance billing and basic diagnostic coding. Additionally, the graduate will develop resume writing, job-seeking and interpersonal skills.

The office skills required to work in a medical or physician's office are quite different from other clerical jobs. This program prepares students for employment in a medical office setting (e.g., physician's office, dental office, therapy clinic, chiropractic clinic, etc.) or other related business environment. The medical office specialist will play a vital role in the daily operation of the medical facility or office. Students will also learn the keys to positive patient relations in the medical office and how to build and maintain a loyal patient base to maximize their success at work. Upon completion of the program, students may elect to sit for NHA's Certified Medical Administrative Assistant certificate examination.

Course Descriptions:

Basic Anatomy - A study of the anatomical structure of the human body. Body structure will be studied by organ systems and will involve a balance between gross anatomical study and histology. Emphasis will be directed towards the structure, composition and functions of the organ systems of the human body.

Students will also learn basic technical terminology and language associated with anatomy. This knowledge is needed for work in both front office and billing positions.

Medical Terminology - The study of basic structure of medical words including prefixes, suffixes, roots, combining forms, plurals, pronunciation, spelling and the definitions of medical terms, diagnostic, therapeutic, and surgical procedures, medical specialties, and pharmacology. Emphasis on building a professional vocabulary required for employment within the allied health care field.

Office Procedures - Introduction to basic medical office skills including effective telephone techniques, filing and indexing, record management, mail handling, appointment scheduling, correspondence and business transactions, office equipment, time management, and goal setting. Emphasis is placed on personal and professional characteristics, privacy, legal and ethical standards, professional and personal therapeutic communications.

Basic Diagnostic Coding - A study of the purpose, principles, and use of the ICD-9-CM classification system for medical services. Students will assign ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM codes to diagnosis statements, case abstracts, and patient records. Use of the ICD-9-CM coding manual and a computerized encoder is incorporated.

Medical Insurance Billing - The study of the principles and practice of insurance and reimbursement processing, including the assignment and reporting of codes for diagnoses; completion of CMS-1500 claims for outpatient, emergency department, and physician office encounters; and the review of cases to identify issues of fraud and abuse.

Supplies: Textbooks will be included in the cost of tuition. Students are responsible for the cost of the NHA's Certified Medical Administrative Assistant certificate examination. Approximate cost of the exam is $105. Testing will be conducted after successful completion of the program.

Course Description: To achieve business results, organizations rely on people getting together to agree on ideas to implement, processes to adopt, and actions to take. These "gatherings" can be as simple as two people holding a conversation in a hallway or as complex as a video-conference involving many people in various sites. These diverse types of gatherings are really one type of thing: a meeting.

Make Meetings Work explores the key role the meeting leader has in ensuring that every meeting he or she conducts achieves its own business purpose. To do that, the course opens with a video that shows what can happen when a meeting leader doesn't plan well and fails to control the meeting process. The course proposes a standard meaning for the word "meeting," gives learners a chance to rate their own recent meetings, and walks them through the key actions for successfully and effectively planning, facilitating, and following up on their meetings.
