  • What book should I read to learn how to use medical billing software?Do you have any suggestions? There are a lot of screens in medical billing software and I would like to buy a book that shows me what to do with every one of them. Should I buy a book that tells how to use a specific kind of medical billing software like Medical Manager or are there books available that tell what to enter into each screen of any kind of medical billing software. Most programs like Medical Mastermind and Medical Manager are similar.

  • I teach medical billing and coding. I don’t know of any book that teaches all of them. I would recommend that you are up on your Word, Excel, Access and Outlook as many employers want them.

    In the past I taught Lytec although now I only teach Medisoft. I have used Medical Manager in one office. I’ve not heard of nor used Medical Mastermind. Virtually all of them are windows based in some way.

    My experience has been that every hospital and doctor’s office has their own software tailored to their specialty. For example a cardiology office software would be different from a dermatology office.

    If you wish you can check out your local community college, adult school and ROP program to see what they are teaching. Most places teach Medisoft. You can check local job listings and find out which programs they want. If no school is teaching Medisoft you can go and buy it online and go through it yourself. Don’t worry about getting the most up to date version. I always advise students NOT to be the first office on the block to get the latest version. Let someone else deal with the bugs and glitches.

    What I would recommend is to apply every place you can think of and then go apply at the agencies. They will know which programs employers want and may even have them there for you to learn. The reason I recommend you apply everywhere FIRST is that if an employer meets you through a agency they have the pay the agency a fee. If you’ve already applied then the employer can choose whether to go through the agency or hire you directly. They may have all new employees go through an employment agent initially however it is best if the employer at least has a choice on how to proceed.

    Write back if you have any other questions. God Bless and best of luck to you.References : Been in the medical field over 20 years. Been teaching medical front office and medical billing and coding for six years. http://www.medisoft.com http://www.amazon.com barnesandnoble.com
