Topic + Discussion Summary

Now that you have the tools, learn where to implement them to unlock opportunity for growth in your medical practice. In session one, you learned how to create a custom roadmap. In session two, tactical methods to capture hidden profit and improve efficiency were developed. In session three, you were given practical training into using business intelligence to extract the data you need to make decisions and course corrections.

In session four, Gary Cavett, Libby Hornibrook and Annette Doebler of DS+B will demonstrate how you use all of this to identify your Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and isolate which areas are your top priority for continued and systematic improvement. By comparing your data with appropriate industry benchmarks, you can uncover which areas have the most benefit to gain and then implement your specific plan of action. The end result will be a set of improvement strategies, based on your KPIs, to increase revenues, minimize costs and develop operational efficiencies in your medical practice.

  • Isolate the top areas in your operations to target where you have the most to gain.
  • Develop budgets, projections and plans that you can communicate to your management team that will make the most difference.
  • Take action to increase revenues, minimize expenses and develop operational efficiencies.
