This is a CME only package. You must have read the Business Basics for Physicians publication.
Your passion as a physician is caring for patients, but to realize your calling, you need solid business skills. For practices to remain viable in today’s ever-changing payer and regulatory atmosphere, physicians need to have a grasp of fundamental business principles and how to control costs and increase revenue for their business.
Business skills like hiring and managing staff, developing and adhering to a budget, crafting administrative policies and procedures, monitoring expenses, and promoting the practice are vital but often elude physicians. Business Basics for Physicians guides you through these and more with a focus on:
- Accounting basics and financial management,
- Long-term and short-term business planning,
- Working with payers, and
- Using new technologies
Read this book to equip yourself with the knowledge and skills you need to ensure your practice’s longevity.
