Five Practice Resolutions You Should Make This Year
Side Note: Inspired by the new year, one of our favorite medical blogs, KevinMD.com, has put together a list of five things you can to do improve your practice this year. However, while the list is short, it is very technology-based and the items are no small tasks for any practice –like implementing EMR and participating in the Physician Quality Reporting Initiative (PQRI). While daunting at first, the article does suggest an order in which the items should be rolled out in a practice, to increase ease of implementation and success. So go ahead, get started. And take it one step at a time –you (and your practice) will be glad you did.
If another item on your practice to-do list this year is to reduce your liability premiums, fill out our free, no-obligation quote form.
