KNOWLEDGE TO GO – Introducing Brand New Seminar Topics by Team Capko
General Business Management and Entrepreneurship
What Makes a Practice Great? Physicians and administrators have tremendous responsibilities and work hard to achieve top performance. Yet, some of them just seem to rise above the bar and achieve greatness. This course looks at what it takes to make a practice truly exceptional.
Business Tools for New Doctors Whether striking out on their own, joining an established practice, or hiring on at a hospital system as an employee, doctors need business skills now more than ever before. Yet, most medical training ignores the business side altogether. Designed for residents and recent medical graduates, this engaging, user-friendly series of seminars provides the tools doctors need to thrive in the modern healthcare business environment.
Business Intelligence: Think Like an MBA Managing a medical practice of any size is complex. Many practice managers and physicians wonder, should I have an MBA? You may not have the time or desire to stop out for graduate school — but you can still learn the basics of how to think like an MBA, and apply those frameworks to your practice.
Becoming a Data-Drive Practice The numbers tell the story. Identify what indicators are required to monitor finances, understand practice performance and make informed decisions.
Strategic Planning – The Blueprint for Your Success Discover what important elements are essential to take strategic actions that will put you in charge of your future.

Financial Management, Billing and Internal Controls
Recruit and Retain Internal Billing Staff The right billing team can mean the difference between a profitable and unprofitable practice. Learn the basics of hiring the right performers for this critical role.

It can be the key to reducing hassles and improving collections — IF you choose and manage wisely. Learn how from this lively presentation.
Guarding Your Practice: How to Prevent and Uncover Internal Theft 85% of practices report they’ve been victims of embezzlement. Embezzlers often capitalize on the trusting, family-like atmosphere at medical practices. What’s more, technology has opened the door to more ways for employees to steal from a medical practice. Learn the signs to uncover thievery in your office — and how to eliminate opportunities for it to occur.
