Our Four Favorite Blogs on Practice Management

You’ve heard it here before – we are all dorks around here. Our office pranks are rather nerdy, we love our healthcare books and our hallway conversations feature more compliance acronyms than I’d like to admit.

Lucky for you, this all translates into even more information that we are consistently dying to share. Apart from our practice management resource center, we also have a host of people who love to share their knowledge on our blog. Check out our four most loved blogs below all about how to manage, improve and grow your practice.

  • Three Mistakes that are Killing Your Practice: We process a lot of data here at Clinicient – which means that we understand a thing or two about what makes for a successful, and not so successful, practice. In this blog, our VP of Client Success, Doug Schumann, discusses the three most deadly sins he sees practices make. The first mistake? Not focusing on your first pass payment rate. Studies show that working a denial costs five times as much as a non-denied claim. Plus, nearly 25 percent of denied claims are never recovered by practices. Learn Doug’s best tips to improving your clinic’s first pass payment rate plus much more in this blog.
  • What I wish I had Known When I Opened My Practice: From Clinicient client Jenna Coe comes a look at the five tips she gives to all rehab therapists looking to either open or expand their clinic. Her first piece of advice? Budget, budget, budget… and then increase your budget by 20 percent for the unknowns. Jenna also discusses the importance of picking the right business partner and the questions you should ask to ensure alignment, how to plan for growth and more. Don’t miss it!
  • The Front Desk: Tips for Improving Patient Management Tasks: A crucial part of any successful outpatient rehabilitation practice is the work accomplished by an efficient and informed front desk administrator. From scheduling tasks, to helping patients track their goals, and keeping therapists organized and paid in a timely manner, the front desk administrator is the essential cog that keeps the therapy machine running. In this blog, we interviewed Tonya Hunt, front office administrator at Quest Physical Therapy, to gather her tips and advice on effective practice management and how it can drive the best possible patient experience.
  • Never Ending To-Do List? Seven Strategies to Getting Things Done:  Are you finding your practice management skills declining simply because you “don’t have time”? At the end of the day, one of the main reasons most people “don’t have time” is because they make too many poor micro-time decisions throughout the day, and those add up. Looking at your phone every time you get a text, stopping what you’re working on every time a new email comes through, or saying yes every time someone asks, “do you have a minute?” These actions all add up to a never-ending to-do list – but they can be avoided. Doug Schumann is back at it again with this blog (see even more of his blogs here) on seven ways you can more effectively manage your practice and get more time back in your day. Read it here.
