Profile

Medical assistants provide a variety of technical, clerical, receptionist, and patient care services under the supervision of nurses or medical practitioners. While the exact scope of their responsibilities may vary depending on the size of the hospital, medical facility, or practice, medical assistants generally support practitioners and other members of health care team by gathering patient medical history, taking and recording vital sign information, and occasionally assisting with minor, office-based procedures. Medical assistants are essential to delivering high-quality patient care.

 

Medical Assistant Job Responsibilities:

  • Helps patients by providing information, services, and assistance.
  • Maintains medical supplies inventory and performing preventive maintenance to keep medical equipment operating.
  • Verifies patient information by interviewing patient, recording medical history, and confirming purpose of visit.
  • Prepares patients for examination by performing preliminary physical tests; taking blood pressure, weight, and temperature; and reporting patient history summary.
  • Saves doctors’ time by helping with office procedures.
  • Secures patient information and maintains patient confidence by completing and safeguarding medical records; completing diagnostic coding and procedure coding; and keeping patient information confidential.

  • Enhances practice reputation by accepting ownership for accomplishing new and different requests, and exploring opportunities to add value to job accomplishments.
