#6 Learning Steps to Budget for Your Medical Practice [Practice Management VideoCast]

In this episode, Chip and I have our first guest. Paul Vanchiere was kind enough to sit down with us to talk about budgeting.

Why budgeting? Well, I suspect that this is an area where many practice don’t excel. If you are part of a larger group, the likelihood you have a sound budgeting process that is sophisticated. But for those in smaller offices, not so much.

Paul is a great guest because he has been worked in many different healthcare setting. This experience has given him a unique perspective that I find interesting.  And it so happens, he’s worked a lot on budgeting for both large and small practice.

Paul highlights 3 key issues that we ought to consider in order to properly budget for our office. The are:

  1. Capacity
  2. Payment – Revenue per encounter
  3. Expenses

Want to learn more about these 3 keys? Then watch the video.

Before you go though, let me mention a few things.
