Medical Practice Profit Drivers

Description

The class will “follow the money” through a typical patient visit, and you will learn:

  • Key performance indicators that can help you generate more profit and cash flow
  • Medical Benchmarking Data to compare your practice’s performance to other Georgia-based practices within your specialty
  • Measuring techniques that filter out confusing seasonal variations so you can readily identify positive and negative trends
  • Management and compensation strategies to reward employees for meeting specific data-driven goals.
  • Learn how to build a practice performance dashboard that will give you a daily one-page view of all the critical factors impacting your practice’s cash-flow and profit.

COST: $49.00
HOURS: 3

  • Catered Lunch
  • Introduction to the University of Georgia SBDC
  • Why is it so difficult to answer simple questions in medical practices?
  • What is revenue in a medical practice and what drives it?
  • How do we decide what is important to track and measure?
  • Organizing practice data into a useful dashboard
  • Interpreting dashboard data
  • Using a dashboard to manage personnel

The class “follows the money” of a patient visit from the time he/she walks in the door, until the time the insurance company pays the claim. Therefore, this class is most suited towards medical providers that bill insurance. The “best fit” attendee would be owner/physicians, office managers, or other staff involved in the financial management of an independent medical practice.

Other medical providers that do not bill insurance would benefit from the group discussion, but most of the financial aspects will not apply.
