There is no doubt that our medical practices are getting more complex. In addition to managing patients, insurance, billing, collections, EMRs, EOBs, and statements, just to name a few, we also have to ensure we remain profitable.
So how does one stay on top of all these things without losing sight of our objectives? How do we continue to manage our day-to-day tasks while implementing ICD-10? How do we ensure that our of patients are immunized while going from paper charts to electronic charts?
Next week, at the American Academy of Pediatrics National Convention and Exhibition held in New Orleans, I will be presenting on a few concepts that will help us, as leaders of our practice, manage complex transitions, like ICD-10 or EMRs implementations, while still ensuring our practices are managed efficiently, effectively and profitably.
I’ll be talking about how we sometimes put too much emphasis on the urgent, the easily measurable, and the immediate as opposed to the more important things like, for example, building cohesive teams.
I’ll give you this little teaser…
Think about Fortune 500 companies. These organizations have the best MBAs money can buy. These companies are staffed with Ivy League trained employees. Yet many of them fail terribly at managing transitions. Is it because they are dumb? Is it because they don’t know how to follow a GANTT chart?
Come by my presentation and I’ll tell you why most companies, including medical practices, fail miserably at managing transitions.
The title of the presentation is Top Secrets from a Pediatrics Practice Manager – Managing Transitions While Maintaining and Efficient Practice.
I’ve requested for the doors to be bolted down considering this is Top Secret material. So you will not want to be late if you are planning on attending.
Just kidding of course, but I would appreciate it very much of you would consider attending the sessions. My top secret session will be held on Friday Oct 19th at 10:00 am.
Below is the 2012 Practice Management NCE flyer developed to highlight SOAPM & PPMA sessions (SOAPM and PPMA is code for cool, innovative and progressive practice management stuff) and to serve as a sample itinerary for members interested in attending practice management related programs.
