Every doctor and practice faces unique challenges or has varying motivations for seeking help; however, we’ve noticed the following common characteristics. Any of these sound familiar?
- The office manager is overwhelmed.
- The practice has grown from a small, family-oriented office to a large, multi-office group.
- Administrative matters are piling up and not being addressed.
- “Seems like we should be making more money”
- The office is chaotic.
- Nobody takes the lead in pulling together all the different aspects of the practice.
- The practice functions like several, independent practices under one roof instead of as a unified group.
- “It seems like we have too many employees. Are they really needed?”
- Staff meetings are not constructive and turn into gripe sessions.
- Poor communication both within and between offices.
- The EMR system is underutilized and the practice is struggling to get Medicare’s “meaningful use” money.
- Doctor: “Why am I handling administrative duties? Shouldn’t I be focused on patients instead?”
