This practical 90-minute audio conference brings Frank Cohen and Owen Dahl, leading figures on the National scene and the first time they are joining forces for an audio conference on this topic, conveniently to your own office! Drawing on their front-line experience with practices, Frank and Owen will show you how to use process improvement tools to boost efficiency so more of your practice revenue goes right to the bottom line.

Remember that profitability is a ratio of revenue over expense. To be more profitable, one only needs to increase the numerator (revenue) or decrease the denominator (expense). The problem is, for most medical practices, little can be done to satisfy these criteria. Since being?profitable is critical to the continuation of providing quality care and, at least in the traditional method, it is difficult for practices to have an impact on the ratio. What is the answer? Simply put, it is increasing efficiency.
