OADM 231 - Advanced Medical Insurance Billing

3 hrs (Sem I)
This course will introduce our students to the world of electronic healthcare. Allscripts PM (Practice Management) and Allscripts EHR (Electronic Health Record) will be utilized to give the students hands-on training. Allscripts PM is practice management software utilized in medical practices to register patients, schedule appointments, enter charges, and post payments. Allscripts EHR is utilized in medical practices as the electronic medical record and the main focus will be on teaching the students how to function as a medical scribe. Scribes are individuals trained in medical documentation who assist a medical provider throughout his or her shift. They serve as a personal assistant to the provider to help make them more efficient and productive. The primary function of a scribe is the creation and maintenance of the patient’s medical record, which is done under the supervision of the provider. The scribe will document the patient’s story, the provider’s interaction with the patient, the procedures performed, the results of laboratory studies, and other pertinent information. This is accomplished by using a laptop or tablet computer, which the scribe takes with him or her throughout the shift. 3 lecture/laboratory hours.

Prerequisite(s): A grade of C or better in OADM 230 .
