Practice Management Associates
Building Healthier Medical Practices
The current health care environment seems to be in a constant state of turmoil. With the never ending changes and implementation of the Affordable Health Care Act (ObamaCare), changes to Medicare, Medicaid, the lowering of reimbursement by all Payers, higher malpractice premiums, new federal regulations, increasing competition, practice consolidations and decreasing profit margins, physicians in today’s health care environment are forced to face many internal and external business challenges. Physicians cannot afford to ignore these and other business issues while they spend their time delivering quality health care to their patients.
Additional challenges lie within your practice. Employees on your staff who you rely on, through no fault of their own, may not be knowledgeable or skilled at addressing many of the business of medicine challenges you face: proper coding , billing and claims submission issues, EMR (Electronic Medical Records), training and development of other employees, negotiating reimbursement agreements, collection efforts, growing market share through effective marketing of the practice, improving customer satisfaction, redesigning of the organizational structure, expanding the entire practice into multiple sites or acquiring additional practices, if needed.
As you can see, whether you’re a solo-practitioner or part of a large multi-speciality group, managing a successful practice is a complicated process that requires you to make decisions that will have an impact on your bottom line. To be successful, you need the proper counsel and guidance in dealing with these complex problems.
