What does an office manager do in a medical office?
A medical office manager holds various responsibilities, including managing patient records, handling payrolls, billings, office budgets, and hiring and training administrative personnel.

Other potential duties include supervising the front office staff, updating office procedures, and complying with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), all while adapting to healthcare laws, regulations, and technology changes.
How much does a medical office manager make?
According to Indeed.com, the average salary for medical office managers in the United States is just over $53,000. However, you may be able to command a higher salary upon entering the profession by possessing a certification to prove to employers that you have what it takes to run their medical office efficiently.

What is the job market like for medical office managers?
According to the BLS, medical and health service managers' job prospects are strong, with an expected 133,200 new jobs by 2029, equating to 32% growth, much faster than average. As the need for physicians and other healthcare workers, medical procedures, and healthcare facilities grow, there will be greater demand for managers who organize and manage medical information and healthcare staff.
