If you are in the process of opening a medical office or reviving an existing one, there are eight areas that need to be addressed.

  1. Credentialing & licensing
  2. Office Staff
  3. Compliance
  4. Financial Policy
  5. Marketing and promotion
  6. Medical equipment, office furniture and supplies
  7. EHR Implementation
  8. Medical Billing & Coding

Many office managers make the decision to hire a consultant to assist with everything from finding a location to building a website. However, if your medical office is operating off of an already limited budget, you may want to consider handling everything yourself.

If you are a physician starting a private practice, it would be practical to hire an office manager that is experienced in medical office set up. Whether you choose to hire an office manager or consultant or if you choose handle everything yourself, make sure to weigh the pros and cons of each.

Whatever you decide, be sure to seek legal advise to ensure all basis are covered.

This wooden venetian blinds option improves energy efficiency by more than 15%.
Selecting the right blinds and wooden venetian blinds shades?
So, it is recommended that you use in the middle of the job.

Roman shades are easy to keep clean. When it comes to insulate
your home while also lowering heating bills.
Just continue cleaning it and dip your finger on the vinegar if
the cloth is already full of dust. Except for those annoying times
when you want some light come through into the home.
