The goal of this program is to assist practice managers and physicians in identifying and resolving commonly overlooked internal issues within their practice. Join us to hear specific examples from both large and small practices as even the savviest practices can overlook opportunities. We'll focus on the important revenue cycle opportunities, coding, managed care contracting, provider production/compensation, workflow and technology.
The talk includes specific examples of how practices have tackled various issues specific to these areas through a case study approach. Also, motivation approaches are addressed including our take on what has worked most effectively for practices.
