Career Step, a provider of online career-focused education and corporate training, has released a new video highlighting the career opportunities available in medical administrative assisting, particularly for those with specialized electronic health record (EHR) training. The video provides information on industry demand, factors behind the field’s growth, average salaries and training requirements for entrance.
“The Department of Labor ranks medical administrative assistants within the top twenty fastest growing careers nationwide,” said Jerolyn Robertson, Career Step Vice President of Academics. “The growth in healthcare is requiring more professionals who know how to run the day-to-day operations of a medical office, making this a great career choice—especially for someone who does not want to spend a long time in school.”
The new video provides information about the demand for medical administrative assistants, which is due to the overall growth of the healthcare industry as well as the ongoing shift to electronic health records. Information is also provided on job responsibilities, work environments and average salaries.
Viewers will also learn about the training requirements of a medical administrative assisting career. With the government-mandated transition to electronic health records, it is important for those considering this career to choose training that includes experience with this EHR software.
“Medical administrative assistant training can give you a big advantage when you are looking for a job by helping you stand out from other applicants,” said Ben Hartman, Career Step Director of Admissions. “The great news is that students can be trained and working in as little as three months, and our hope is that this new video will help those who are looking for a quick career change option realize that medical administrative assisting should be on their list of considerations.”
Career Step has trained thousands of medical administrative assistants, and the school’s Medical Administrative Assistant with EHR program is specifically designed to prepare students to earn the Certified Medical Administrative Assistant (CMAA) and Certified Electronic Health Records Specialist (CEHRS) credentials offered by the National Healthcareer Association (NHA).
