The surprising results of the 2016 election have many scrambling to figure out what is next. So we are going to leave the speculation of change to the Affordable Care Act, Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), EHR, value-based medicine, and the potential impacts to patients and physicians to future articles and focus on what we think we know. We encourage all to get connected and get involved where you can to help direct health care change in a direction that makes sense for urologic care.
Improving Practice Staff Performance – Essentials for Success
Written by Larry Kemp, FACHE
PRS Consulting works with numerous physicians and groups of all sizes and needs. We see first-hand how individual practices confront the reality of growing financial pressures while delivering quality care and services. While many practices are facing serious organizational and financial issues, there are those that are manging better - true survivors in today’s challenging environment. For those better performing practices we see consistent themes: Effective leadership, clear goals and consistent communication, and staff aligned to perform functions as an integrated team. Improving staff performance is critical to profitability, organization cohesiveness and ultimately future success. Physician practices have, in many ways, the opportunity and ability to manage their future.
