Physican Practice Management
In order for physician practices to achieve optimal performance, the organization needs to operate as effectively and efficiently as possible, from a clinical AND a business perspective.
Successful relationships begin when organizations decide in advance why and how they want to engage and employ physicians.
Failure to fully integrate physicians can ruin the relationship and any potential benefits. Physician support and engagement with the organization's culture, and physician behavior consistent with the values of the organization are key to a successful integration.
Operational Assessment and Improvement. It's a physical for your practice.
Just as you have an annual physical to identify health problems early, your practice should have a periodic operational assessment to ensure it is operating as efficiently and effectively as possible.
These assessments typically generate a positive return on the practice's investment. Our Practice Management Assessment focuses on the operations of the practice with heavy emphasis on bottlenecks that affect collections and the payment process.
Each practice management assessment is designed around the practice and rates can vary depending on size.
Revenue Cycle Management is the life blood of any practice. Effective patient registration, insurance and benefit verification, charge capture, and claims processing are essential to maintaining practice viability.
To help improve any process, we will begin by assessing where you are now, where you should be, and setting realistic collection goals based upon volume and payer. A Physician Fee Schedule Analysis or Chargemaster review and Utilization Analysis are included in our Revenue Cycle Assessment projects.
Management and Governance
Organizational governance in a medical practice consists of developing long term strategies and the strategic direction of the organization. It involves the ability to facilitate the corporate legal structure, define policy and define the practice's culture.
We can assist with the structuring, recruiting, training and informing Management, Board of Directors and governing committees and help integrate the organization's strategic plan into corporate mission, vision and culture. Services are typically established on a monthly or quarterly schedule.
