Improve Your Bottomline

It’s getting harder and harder to be paid correctly and on time.   This session will show you positive steps to take to improve your collections from insurer and patients.  We’ll review the essential reports that doctors need to review whether your practice uses an outsourced company or an in-house team.   You’ll see how proper optimization of technology can save money and generate better collections.

Practice Transitions

If you are contemplating retirement or a practice sale or merger, this session will provide guidance on making a smooth transition—personally, as well as professionally.
