  1. 2.

    Do you have the ability to work independently? When have you done so?

      How to Answer

      Medical Records Abstractors work in physician's offices, medical facilities, public health agencies, and remotely. No matter where you work, you must be able to work independently and with little direction or supervision. The job description should specify that one of the essential functions is to work independently. Describe to the interviewer how you work independently and give an example when you have done so.

      Krista's Answer

      "Yes, I do have the ability to work independently, and most of my past work as a Medical Records Abstractor has been done remotely with very little supervision. For the past three years, I have been working for a public health agency from home. While I do enjoy working with a team, I like working independently to stay focused on the task at hand. This work is very detail-oriented, and when working alone, I can focus better."
