The Atlanta metropolitan area is home to thousands of physician practices and medical clinics. They rely on medical assistants to work better, faster, and smarter.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 11, 2011
The US Bureau of Labor Statistics lists medical assisting as one of the fastest-growing careers. The medical assisting diploma offered by Anthem College provides students with the clinical and administrative training they will need to compete in this field.
At the same time, the health information technology field has matured and become a permanent presence in healthcare. All healthcare facilities—hospitals, outpatient surgical centers, clinics, skilled nursing facilities—use electronic insurance billing and coding tools, and maintain electronic medical records (EMRs). Virtually all physician offices bill electronically and a growing number are adopting EMRs as well.
“The Atlanta metropolitan area is home to thousands of physician practices and medical clinics,” says Steven Temple, campus president for Anthem College—Atlanta. “They rely on medical assistants to work better, faster, and smarter. Coupled with the growth of information technology tools used throughout healthcare, we recognized that these are two areas with terrific employment potential.”
“The employers we spoke with gave us specific suggestions to include in our diploma programs,” Temple added. “This way, we know that our students are learning the skills they need to succeed in the workplace.”
Anthem College is located at 2450 Piedmont Road NE in Atlanta, in the Lindbergh Plaza Center.
