What are the key challenges that your medical practice faces? Are they in the same challenges that other practices face? Small medical practices (Range of 1-6 doctors) have special challenges that larger practices may not face. Having fewer people means more difficulty in separating job duties so workflow, efficiencies, and security measures need to be streamlined. Some duties or some technology can be outsourced…but how to decide what makes fiscal sense? And how do you get buy-in from the physician leaders?
This audio conference will look at 7 areas that are common issues for the smaller practices and will offer suggestions for solutions to overcome these challenges. Whether your issue is staffing, or technology, the new world of social media marketing or division of financial responsibilities, Donna Weinstock’s suggestions will benefit you and your practice. She will help you to focus on the things that need the practice executive’s attention and to develop a work plan for addressing the problem areas. She will also cover how you can prevent challenges in the future. Think of this conference as “business triage” for your practice.
