5 reasons we need a service like Medical Assistant Network.

 

There are over 634,000 medical assistants in the United States. According to Wikipedia. There are approximately 230,187 physician practices in the United States. Those doctors offices need qualified medical assistants to work in them.

 

1.Proper Placement

Often times medical assistants who need jobs don't match up with the right specialty at doctors offices. Medical assisting has such an incredibly high turnover rate. I think this all boils down to improper placement of medical assistants at doctors offices. Let's say you have a medical assistant who is looking for a job, they've applied at multiple offices and no one's calling back. Finally, this medical assistant gets a call from a pediatric office even though this MA does not want to work in pediatrics they take the interview. During the interview, a job offer is placed, because it's the only offer they have received they take it. They are not happy at this job because this is a specialty they never wanted to work in and in turn don't turn in quality work. They do not do a very good job and in the meantime, they're looking for another job on the side.

 

2. Screening

Having a service like Medical Assistant Network to be the middleman takes all of the guesswork out. We review, recruit and interview all of the medical assistants. We find the medical assistants needed for your office. After performing a needs assessment with a doctor's office over the phone to see what they need we can go into our network and find the right MA for the office. To be added to our network we offer an extensive interviewing process for medical assistants to find qualified candidates.

 

3. Review of Skills

Before we send out a medical assistant to a doctor’s office we go through a review of skills for all MA’s. These include professionalism, time management, customer service, front and back office skills and anything specific your office would like covered.

 

 

4. Interviewing

The medical assistants have the ability, to be honest about their skills, qualifications, and specialties that they do or do not like to work in. If a medical assistant does not like pediatrics the interviewer will notate this on the MA account On the flipside if the MA loves dermatology and feels like they excel in this specialty and they have a certain set of skills that make them a perfect fit for a specialty like this we will notate this and try to find a dermatology office that would be a good fit.

 

5. Follow up

We will follow up with you at the office as well as the medical assistant to make sure everything is going well. If there are things that need to be worked on with our MA we will intervene and make sure the MA knows what the expectations are and can perform to those expectations.
