    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.
