 The Power of Business Plans for Medical Practices
This popular seminar is drawn from the MGMA/McGraw-Hill book “Medical Practice Business Plan Workbook” (now published by Digital CPE Press). Physicians confront a myriad of management problems every day, but a good business plan is the critical management tool to gain control of the practice. The model used here was specifically developed for the unique needs of medical practices. Attendees are guided through the elements of developing a business plan - to analyze and assess their organization in a realistic, systematic process. The outcome is the business plan that is oriented towards action - action that will take control of your practice and build the practice you want ..... and deserve. Includes a writing guide for each of the 15 components.

Compliance Plans in the Real World
It may be “voluntary” but a compliance plan is an effective tool to help insure that billing and coding practices are proper and demonstrates the intent of the physicians. For most small to medium sized practices, the task may seem daunting. Attendees will learn why healthcare fraud is a high priority for prosecutors, how to set up a compliance program that can work in a real private practice setting. Includes sample corporate policies and a sample compliance plan.
