My Job Duties working at Tallahassee Orthopedic Clinic as a Medical Record Specialist:
1. Handled all Patient Paperwork that rotated through the clinic and all in a timely manner, had to separate and properly prepare each patient record with all of the necessary and helpful information to make it easier when I scanned it into the Electronic Medical Record System.
2. Kept Records up-to-date by ensuring that they were all scanned in a timely manner and expedited any document that was needed to be inputted into the system immediately.
3. Plus, I had to input all of the Doctor's Surgery Scopes that were taken from during Patients' Surgeries on a daily basis.
4. Also, I filled in the Medical Records Department, whenever the Department was short-handed or needed extra assistance. These Duties included: Answering phone calls from Patients, Lawyers, and other Doctor's offices requesting a Patient Records, while ensuring to follow all of the HIPPA-Guidelines. Another task, was routinely checking the Fax machine for any new incoming Medical Record requests and ensuring to get them prepared and sent back all within a timely manner. The last duty and most importantly, I would have to take requests from Patients that were in the office and get them ready for them quickly while they waited, or if they called ahead of time I would bring their printed out records that they requested and had them fill out a Release Form before releasing their records to them. Finally, double checking with the Patient ensuring that there was nothing else that I could do to assist them.
