A patient access representative (PAR) is an integral part of all hospital and outpatient care practices. Patient representatives act as liaisons between healthcare professionals and patients to improve the patient's experience within the healthcare system. They also have the skills to support both front and back-office staff, which helps prevent gaps in care, administration, and financial activities, allowing them to be one of the top jobs in healthcare administration.
This patient access representative training bundle provides the knowledge to navigate these systems for those with limited or no healthcare experience. With technology skills also required for this allied healthcare position, obtaining active learning through an electronic health record simulator will provide a complete user experience with all aspects of that equipment—which you will find in many healthcare settings. In-person and telephone communication skills are critical for people in this position, so you will address strategies that can be used in the most common situations in many healthcare settings. This course also prepares you to become a patient service representative, someone who collects information from patients before their medical appointments and answers any questions about billing. You will move through the program at your own pace, and your facilitators will be there with you every step of the way to provide clarification, support, and guidance.
This comprehensive course bundle also features a medical terminology course that will help you gain a greater understanding of the human body, how to describe it, and how to use medical terminology in a healthcare setting—ensuring you have the fundamentals to launch your new healthcare career.
The Patient Access Representative course provides comprehensive training that will prepare you for the Certified Medical Administrative Assistant (CMAA) and Certified Electronic Health Record Specialist (CEHRS) certification exams through National Healthcareer Association (NHA). This course includes vouchers that cover the fees for these exams.
