Practice Business Analysis and Practice Improvement

This can and nearly always includes finding significant opportunities for improvement in the revenue cycle, but can include staffing utilization, community and market analysis, strategic planning,  competitor impact, opportunities for expense reductions, physician compensation analysis, clinic flow and improvements, customer service and referral source analysis, updated fee schedule analysis and managed care contracting. We believe we can do this in a highly individualized manner that does not create staff anxiety.
