New year, new budget, new goals? Now is the time for practice managers to review their skills-building strategies for 2013 — and to make the case for joining general practice management organizations like PAHCOM, MGMA and POMAA or specialty-specific groups like NERVES and Bones.
The world of healthcare is changing. The colleagueship and educational programs offered by established practice management organizations can be invaluable in helping you and your practice stay on top of the changes — and gather new ideas for managing change. And, these groups can also often help you make crucial connections to vendors who can help your practice, often at discounted rates. The certification programs can help you advance your own career — and, if your practice’s growth requires you to make some key hires, being part of one of these organizations can help you find qualified candidates.
