Today is Medical Assistants Day, a time to honor the important role that Medical Assistants, CNAs, PCAs, and those in similar roles play in quality patient outcomes and care in all healthcare settings.
For those who may not know, Medical Assistants provide clinical and administrative support for physicians and other medical professionals by running the front office, drawing blood, administering vaccinations, taking patients’ vital signs, and more. Similarly, CNAs and PCAs perform many of those same duties, though are typically in a more direct patient care setting.
These roles are essential components of GHR Healthcare - we work with some truly incredible Medical Assistants, CNAs, and others in similar roles across the healthcare field. In honor of #MedicalAssistantRecognitionDay, we wanted to give them the opportunity to share some of their experiences in the field, so we connected with Kayla and Josie, two medical assistants on assignment with GHR. Here's what they shared with us!
