"...In our medical training, only a few of us received the necessary skills to become effective and successful businessmen and business women. Owen Dahl is helping physicians and their practice staff bridge the gap. All those who read this book will become not only better business people but will ultimately become better physicians." --Neil Baum, MD, Clinical Associate Professor of Urology, Tulane Medical School, author, Marketing Your Clinical Practice
"If you own, run, or have anything to do with a medical practice, you must read this book. Today the practice of medicine must be recognized as a business. No longer can the business of the practice be based on the intuition of the physician or office manager. This exciting book from Greenbranch Publishing promises a new way for physicians and administrators to look at the medical practice. Owen Dahl decodes business theories and applies them to today's medical practice." - Foreword by David B. Nash, MD, MBA, FACP
Recommended by the MGMA, this resource is filled with winning techniques. Think Business! will teach you the following:
Financial fundamentals - how to keep tabs on the practice
Employees as assets: how to recruit and retain them
How to differentiate your practice from your competition
Setting the stage for pay-for-performance and quality of care
Why medical staff should care about satisfied patients and quality outcomes
Motivate employees to build great teams; it's not only about the money!
Smart strategies to focus your practice as a business
Packed with plenty of take-home value, you can count on Owen Dahl to provide you with the language, the players, and the management techniques to ensure success in your practice.
It is time to bring solid business principles to the medical practice! And, running a profitable medical practice takes more than your staff's strong clinical skills.
Today's practice is complex -- declining reimbursement per patient or per procedure, complexity in managing the patient process, technology needs, decision-making processes to ensure optimal use of resources, outcomes management...and don't forget the nuances of employee management!
