Medical administrators, also known as administrators, keep healthcare offices running efficiently. They perform highly specialized work requiring knowledge of medical terminology and procedures. Administrators assist physicians and medical scientists with reports, record simple medical histories, arrange for patients to be hospitalized, and order supplies. They must also be familiar with insurance rules, billing practices, and hospital or laboratory procedures.
While entry-level medical administrative positions may be filled by those possessing a high school diploma, medical office administrators require specialized medical administration training programs. Training may include courses in medical terminology, medical administration, medical office procedures, records and database management, or medical coding.
Medical administrators should be proficient in keyboarding with good spelling, punctuation and grammar. In addition, a medical administrator should be organized, with good communication and customer service skills. Increasing office automation and organizational restructuring will continue to make medical administrators more productive in coming years. Computers, e-mail, scanners and voice message systems are now standard workplace tools necessary to medical administration.
