As the healthcare field evolves and new regulations emerge, the need for credentialed medical assistants with expanded skillsets is rapidly increasing. As the heart of the care team, medical assistants can help private practices achieve new levels of efficiency through quality patient care and overall satisfaction.
Credentialing your medical assistants through an independent, accredited organization is one way to assess core competencies needed. In addition, credentialed medical assistants can help your practice earn Meaningful Use incentives as MAs can enter physician orders in AdvancedEHR and have those entries count towards your Meaningful Use measures.
As your credentialed medical assistants expand into specialized procedures, such as phlebotomy or administering EKGs, NHA certifications are available to assess their competency in these fields as well.
Credentialing benefits your care team through:
- Reliable quality assurance
- More efficient use of resources
- More EHR entries counted toward the EHR incentive program
- Assessing competency in specialized procedures
