Reputable healthcare facility
Registered Medical Assistant (Former Employee) –  Greenwood, INMarch 8, 2017
A typical day at work would include the use of Epic database to log patient phone calls, results as well as patient e-mails using the my chart e-mail option available to patients so that they are able to view their labs from the privacy of their own home. Also included returning patient phone calls to those who are requesting lab results. Hardest part of the job was processing prescription refills for patients, which was overcome
Pros
lunches provided by drug reps who also provide product knowledge about different medications
Cons
Short term assignment

productive workplace
Credentialing Specialist (Former Employee) –  Greenwood, INFebruary 8, 2017
a typical day at work is corresponding with insurance companies about providers effective dates. I learned how to maintain a caqh for the provider which is how insurance companies obtain information needed for the application. management was awesome. workplace culture was very diverse. the hardest part of the job was trying to confirm foreign providers educations from other countries. the most enjoyable part was understanding the knowledge needed to get a provider enrolled in each insurance company.
Pros
dressing casual on fridays to support riley
Cons
short lunches

The proper place to start for a new endeavor as a healthcare professional
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) –  Munster, INJanuary 11, 2017
This facility has numerous speicalties and that is one of its main attributes. There are quite a few providers here that go above and beyond the call of duty for the patients. There are some that have very little idea as to what they are doing. I hope things have changed since my departure 3 years ago.

I dealt with management without management capabilities! The facility should choose their leadership carefully.
Pros
experience
Cons
floating

Hired and laid off within 6 weeks...
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Tacoma, WAOctober 7, 2016
The department I worked in was poorly managed. I was interviewed and hired by the employee's that worked in the department and didn't meet the manager until my first day. The manager was unaware of the department reorganization that underfoot and both of us were laid off on the same day. I left a permanent full-time position and that was taken under consideration when they offered me a generous severance package.
Pros
Great benefits.
Cons
Communication is totally lacking.

Information Security Technologist
Information Security Technician (Former Employee) –  Beech Grove, INSeptember 10, 2016
Does not follow disciplined process

Management does not follow procedures or enforce policy (even though part of job scope)

Personal relationships will trump operational security (buddy system)

Management for this particular team is not intrusive or active in daily routine unless senior management is involved

Majority of interaction is with people not qualified or unwilling to learn their job scope

No teaching, just thrown to wolves

Many Jobs are similar in local area - go there
Pros
Co-workers are good people and nice; management undermines their abilities
Cons
Team Members are not happy with QoL, High Turnover

Horrible management
Clinical Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Crown Point, INSeptember 5, 2016
This company will do ANYTHING to save money. Managers think they're so perfect but really they ought to be flippin' burgers.

They pretend to be Catholic, but they don't truly care about their patients nor their employees. All they care about is their bloated egos. Do yourself a favor and RUN AWAY from these crooks
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Unfair; favoritism

Nice place to work some of the time
Patient Service Representative (PSR) (Former Employee) –  Chesterton, INOctober 11, 2016
Your work day will be fine until you make a complaint about how you are being treated by other co-workers. Its best to get the EEO involved if the problem continues. It seems like they don't want to solve the co-worker issues.
Pros
free lunch
