I have been working for a doctor now for 9-1/2 years and I really need a job title. She calls me “Office Manager” but it just sounds so general. I am the Only employee she and I started this practice together.
I do EVERYTHING i.e answering phones,handling written, email and fax correspondences, scheduling patients, preparing and maintaining medical records, liaison between doctor and patients. Patient intake processing that includes rooming patients taking their vitals and histories.
Ordering supplies, sorting mail, scheduling procedures and scans, coordinating lab services, obtain pre-authorization. ALL of the billing and payment application. A/R, A/P and Patient statements. On-call time sheets and on-call calendars for 4 hospitals. Also the overseer and coordinator for 3 specialty clinics we have every month. And I do SOOOOO much more I can even list them all.
WHAT IS MY TITLE?
Wow – you really do everything! You could have multiple titles and they would all be justified.
Here’s a few titles that come to mind:
Physician Practice Manager (AAPC Certification Available)
Medical Operations Manager
Practice Business Manager
You could also combine some of these titles and add the prefix “Senior”
From what you described, it didn’t sound like you have any ownership in the practice. If so you could add Medical Practice Co-Owner and Entrepreneur as titles.
