Key Assignment Final Draft

This final draft represents Part 1 and Part 2 of the Key Assignment. You should treat it as a finished document in terms of grammar, formatting, references, all necessary sections, and complete content. There is also a Part 3 to this week’s assignment related to implementing the training of new staff with the completed Training Manual.

Part 1 Tasks (from Week 4)

Training Manual

In this assignment, you will develop a training manual that will be utilized for training new employees (certified medical administrative assistants [CMAAs]) who join the clinic.

Physicians are hiring more CMAAs to help manage the increasing complexities of patient care and practice management, while also helping to implement cost-effectiveness and efficiency. Your responsibilities as a CMAA can be tailored to the needs of the practice. You will manage front-office functions, manage patient flow, and handle a wide range of tasks that have been discussed in the past few weeks. As a CMAA, you may convey clinical information on behalf of the physician and follow clinical protocol when speaking with patients, but you cannot exercise independent medical judgments. You will also help to optimize patient flow, enabling the physician to see more patients with efficiency, all while following your State’s scope of practice and working under the supervision of a licensed physician.
