Tonnie

A passionate entrepreneur, adept at managing all phases of a project from needs assessment to completion. Ms. Aubuchon began her career as a registered medical assistant (RMA) in 1986 while attending Wichita State University and studying Business Management.

She entered the field of medical transcription in 1988, and as an entrepreneur quickly built her own successful medical transcription service with MDS of Kansas. She now has more than two decades in the medical field and in business management and operations, taking the company to new levels of growth.

Ms. Aubuchon launched an aggressive expansion plan in 2012 offering new services in Medical Billing and Revenue Cycle Management, Electronic Health Record Software Services, and Medical Scribe education and services.

Tonya is MDS’ medical record specialist, ensuring the day to day file management is securely meeting all deadlines. She is the liaison for the entire MDS team, both clients, and transcriptionists, and has numerous tasks relative to patient health information, electronic medical records, and medical coding and billing in our revenue cycle department. She is instrumental for the workflow and efficiency of the MDS processes.

Tonya is certified through the AAPC as Certified Professional Coder (CPC) and Certified Medical Billing Specialist (CMBS). She has also completed her ICD-10 Proficiency Certification.  She is adept at working within the Electronic Health Record (EHR) software of many systems as claim generation requires collecting data from the provider’s clinical documentation found in notes and hospital operative reports.

Tonya currently serves on the AAPC Wichita Chapter Board as the Member Outreach Officer.

Tonnie joined MDS of Kansas in 2014 as a medical transcriptionist with more than 18 years’ experience in the industry. She is seasoned in cardiology but has many other specialties, including orthopedic, oncology, etc. In addition to medical transcription experience, Tonnie has exceptional electronic health record (EHR) knowledge and is working in as many as 3-4 electronic systems daily.

Because of her extensive experience, she has easily transitioned into quality assurance and editing, becoming a key “go-to” person for questions in medical transcription or electronic health record software systems. As new members join the team, she is able to help them transition with setup, program installations, and workflow.

Her strengths in meeting deadlines, day-to-day operations, new technologies, and pursuit and development of new accounts are priceless!

Tiffany is a Certified Medical Scribe Specialist (CMSS) and Medical Assistant (MA) Consultant for MDS. She is a seasoned medical assistant beginning her career more than 8 years ago. In 2010, she then transitioned to a full-time Medical Scribe.

Believing in continued education and credentialing, she went on to earn her Certified Medical Scribe Specialist (CMSS) in 2016 from MDS of Kansas and subsequently made part of the education team, contracted to work as-needed.  She maintains full time employment working as a Medical Scribe, allowing our students to fulfill internships and shadowing.

Brittany began her career in the medical field working as a CNA in high school.  She knew instantly it was an area she wanted to pursue and went on to successfully acquire her LPN.  Brittany joined MDS of Kansas in 2017 with 10 years’ experience in the healthcare industry.  Working as a medical scribe, she finds the interaction with providers to document patient encounters in real-time to be quite rewarding.  Having a heart for education, credentialing, and helping others, it did not take long for Brittany to assume the Lead Scribe position and Program Instructor at MDS of Kansas.   She is directly involved in the development of new growth and ideas in the curriculum, utilizing sharp medical language, grammar, and specific do’s and don’ts in clinical documentation, as well as mastering electronic health record nomenclature.  She loves teaching and sharing her education with others to learn medical scribing, and helping students strive to be the best they can be—all while maintaining and continuing her own education.

Jessica began her career as a Medical Aid (MA) in 2008, and completing her Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) training shortly thereafter.   She is adept in medical office and hospital protocol, both front and back office, including mastering several EHR software systems.  She joined the MDS team early in 2017, working as needed, and is currently enrolled in the Accelerated Medical Scribe program.  Being a seasoned CNA, working in the healthcare industry for more than 9 years, and having a robust resume in clinical documentation made for a perfect fit for medical scribe work.   Jessica is excited about the opportunities in the ever-changing clinical and medical office setting, and therefore is advancing her career with continued education.
