Designed to ensure that every medical assisting graduate can quickly trade a cap and gown for a set of scrubs, Lippincott Williams & Wilkins' Comprehensive Medical Assisting, 5e is more than just a textbook-it's an engaging, dynamic suite of learning resources designed to train medical assisting students in the administrative and clinical skills they'll need in today's rapidly changing health care environment. The Fifth Edition takes real world focus to a new level by integrating meaningful use of an Electronic Medical Records system (EMR) directly into every chapter. This brand new feature includes chapter-opening case studies and related hands-on EMR activities that help students master content as they learn to use the software for tasks like patient scheduling, charting, coding, and billing. Other exciting changes in the Fifth Edition include a full chapter on Emergency Preparedness, new in-book role playing activities, and an expanded array of online resources. We're pleased to continue to offer Harris CareTracker EMR free with adoption, along with case studies, skills videos, and animations.
