ACMPE: The American College of Medical Practice Executives

To echo the words of The College “It’s within your reach.”

Certified Medical Practice Executive (CMPE) is one of our profession’s most respected credentials. CMPE certified practice administrators can earn 10% to 40% more than non-certified managers (depending group size and location) when compared to non-CMPE certified practice administrators. Obtaining certification alone won't account for the increase in wages; the commitment to continuing education and increased networking opportunities when combined with the credentials of certification add value and competency to your personal management portfolio.

Certified Medical Assistant / Patient Navigator

Wasilla, Alaska

The Strive Group, on behalf of its client, is recruiting for a Medical Assistant. A current CMA
certification and a current BLS/CPR certification and no less than two years’
experience is required to be considered for the position.
Patient Navigation is key to this position. While the incumbent will be responsible for a
variety of duties, the list below highlights what the client considers most valuable to the
organization:
• Preparing patient records prior to scheduled visits. Often the records are scattered
between different providers so the ideal incumbent will be personable and fully able to
communicate with external organizations to obtain records and information in a timely
manner.
• Rooming patients. A commitment to service driven by patience, compassion and empathy
for the patient go a long way to getting the patient in the exam room on time with vital
signs complete, medication reconciled, and the intake questionnaire completed and
entered into the electronic health records.
• Communicating with the doctors. This means being comfortable with giving the doctor a
heads up when new information surfaces about a patient, and it also means that
incumbent is pro-active with gathering and sharing information with the treatment team.
If you have experience working with electronic medical records, not afraid of medical
software applications, are extremely well organized, detail oriented and work with integrity,
authenticity, accountability and dependability, our client would love to meet you.
Candidates should be prepared to support their claims regarding proficiency and expertise
accordingly.
