With or without a practice manager, keeping your practice in tip top shape is a challenging and time consuming job. The list of tasks is extensive and the resources it takes to accomplish them is just as massive. Financing the team in house to stay on top of that list is not always economical, which is why many doctors chose to take on these tasks themselves. According to a study published in the Annals of Family Medicine journal, paperwork takes up to as much as a third of a physician’s workday. This burden not only affects job satisfaction but more importantly, your bottom line.
Let’s face it, you didn’t go to medical school to be an accountant, lawyer or systems analyst. And while you may think it’s more effective to do things yourself or hand them over to your practice manager, neither of you may be properly equipped to handle the wide array of tasks necessary to keep your practice compliant or even efficient; two things that can cost you more in the end if not handled properly.
Working With a Medical Billing Company
Regardless of your practice’s history, size, or needs, enlisting the support of an medical billing company can be beneficial. A professional medical billing company can help doctors spend less time with paperwork and more time with patients. With the right partnership, your practice can excel in ways you didn’t know possible. Recognizing where those opportunities lie is first step in moving your practice in the best direction, and allowing the focus to return to serving patients and practicing medicine.
