AHDPG Announces Availability of Medical Scribe Specialty Training Series
Like physicians who after completing medical school usually further their education in a specialty of medicine by completing a multi-year residency, a medical scribe can benefit by enhancing their knowledge in a specific specialty or specialties.
These courses are designed for practicing medical scribes and/or graduates of AHDPG’s Medical Scribe Professional or Medical Scribe for Practicing Allied Health Professionals training programs.
Each specialty specific course trains each scribe candidate in the areas of anatomy and physiology, diseases, terminology and abbreviations, medications, procedures, billing/coding requirements, and charting. Each course is online, self-paced with instructor feedback and assistance as needed. Each course includes approximately 20 clock hours of instruction and is designed to be completed in less than 30 days.
“As the use of certified medical scribes become more commonplace and more healthcare organizations choose to leverage their existing allied health professionals in the role of medical scribe on a longer-term basis, our medical scribe specialty training course is designed to help advance the skills and meet the unique requirements of each specialty,” says Peter Reilly, CEO of the American Healthcare Documentation Professionals Group. “The better we can prepare each scribe, the better they can capture the healthcare documentation needed to support patient care, and this serves both the physicians and patients best.”
AHDPG’s Medical Scribe Specialty Series is just one way we are working to help individuals become highly skilled medical scribe professionals and healthcare organization better develop their own team(s) of internally managed medical scribes. Our Medical Scribe Training, Certification and Implementation Support Program includes the following key elements:
