RE:  Medical Records Clerk (ID: 345575521)


My name is Bridget Sirovetz and I am very interested in the Medical Records Clerk (ID: 345575521) Position you advertised on an Internet Job Board.  I feel my qualifications, technical and personal, reflect those necessary to be successful in such a position.  I am looking to get back into the Office Environment.


I currently work at the Staples in Lower Nazareth/Easton as a Part-Time Copy and Print Associate/Cashier for the past few months.  I use the touch screen cash register, color and black and white copiers, 2 laminators, business card cutter, a laser cutter, and several other copy and print machines to produce orders that are placed for our customers and business partners.  It is a challenging position, with many situations to find solutions for when a machine is down.


As you can see from my resume, I have various skills in the Healthcare arena.  First and foremost in any position, you must be flexible, computer savvy and have lots of patience.  I have worked in positions where I have had to face many situations where flexibility was needed (and required), computer literacy a necessity, and patience in demand.


My last position in the Healthcare Arena was with Electronic Health Records.  Responding to Requests for Information for various Physician Groups and Single Doctor Offices.  I have worked for many Practices, so their office procedures and Records would not be new for me to review.  My experience in the Billing Arena is summed up with the phrase of "Jack of all Trades".  I have experience with updating databases, scanning, copying, filing, mailings, any of the general Office duties.  I've worked in various types of environments and being a good multi-tasker was essential.


My communication skills (verbal and written) are strong and I enjoy working in a team environment.  My skills on the computer are strong and very adaptable to any system.  I have strong organization skills and attention to detail.  I am always willing to offer help or assistance to others when needed. 


My education is well rounded.  I have my Certification as an Electronic Health Records Specialist (#L2F9P5C9) and I have my Certification as a Certified Billing and Coding Specialist (#P5W8L8S5) through the National Healthcareer Association.  I believe continual learning is necessary to stay at the top of your profession.


I look forward to hearing from you regarding your Medical Records Clerk (ID: 345575521) Position.  I believe I would be an asset to your organization.


Any questions, please do not hesitate to call me immediately at 610-755-2593 or e-mail at bsirovetz@gmail.com.


Thank You.
