Physician managers have difficult tasks for which medical school provides no preparation. Employees must be individually evaluated, so their unique talents can be properly exploited and appropriately compensated. Each person’s weaknesses must be improved upon with delicacy, while his or her strengths are given greater and greater focus. This is especially true with regards to billing and coding because the financial health of all healthcare businesses requires organizational competence in this arena. It is vital to have an understanding of each staff member’s skills, talents, and knowledge, and a proper deployment of each person into the appropriate job. The goal of any manager is a group of satisfied employees who enjoy their work and make appropriately recognized contributions.
