Practice Kit for Medical Front Office Skills with Medisoft Version 16 and Practice Partner V 9.3.2

Bestselling author Carol J. Buck created this innovative kit to provide you with real-life experience in preparation for your medical office career. Practice Kit for Medical Front Office Skills simulates your first two weeks on the job working in the front office of a medical practice with 46 tasks divided over a 10-day period. Each task simulates a commonly performed administrative duty and many can be performed either on paper or electronically. Printed file folders, file labels, and appointment sheets are included to make your experience as realistic as possible. Two CD-ROMs featuring actual practice management and electronic health record software help you gain necessary experience working with real-world medical office software. A companion Evolve website also features audio files with phone messages and physician dictations for completing specific tasks. It's everything you need for a two-week externship experience -- without setting foot in a medical office!
