The priority of Patient Access in the Diagnostic Center is the patient comes first at all times. The goal is to register a patient as quickly and efficiently as possible for medical testing such as EKG, Mammograms, MRI, Labs and more.
I have learned some medical coding and how to call the insurance company for authorizations.
Management is always focus on the climate of the workplace.
My coworkers have a great sense of teamwork and have a good relationship between us.
The most difficult part of the job is having to call the insurance companies as there is usually a long wait time.
The best part of my job is being involved with the patients themselves. I very much enjoy registering them and speaking with them.
