Conducting a practice management review.

Abstract

A practice management review can be used by a physician practice to identify problems within the practice, introduce operational improvements, and ensure that the practice is being run as profitably and efficiently as possible. Such a review involves scrutiny of nearly every aspect of a practice's operations--from reimbursement to personnel issues. Before deciding to have a practice review performed, the practice's management team must establish objectives for the review and must ensure that physicians and practice staff understand the review process. Once the review process is initiated, the steps that must be taken to identify and diagnose problems within a practice include conducting interviews, collecting data, analyzing data, and suggesting remedies.
