This seminar was by far one of the most beneficial seminars I have attended.2014 HMES Attendee Zach Giebler, Practice Administrator | OSR Physical Therapy


We’re halfway through this year’s Healthcare Management Educational Series. Our first session with MGMA presenter Frank Cohen showed medical practice leaders new and simplified decision methodologies that can be used to navigate internal roadblocks to action. In session two, Elizabeth Woodcock uncovered many small and large opportunities many leaders overlook to capture profit that is hiding in their medical practices.

 

Our remaining two sessions add to the knowledge obtained but are also great as stand-alone educational areas you can use to improve your medical practice management and clarify the complexity within the healthcare industry. Click the tabs below for more information.


 

Session 03: Business Intelligence | January 14

Business Intelligence Within Reach

Better data, better decisions. If only it were that easy. But with Nate Moore’s training, you can generate the type of business intelligence that keeps your Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) in your medical practice in front of you and your management team. Being able to access this information with less frustration will open up new conversations within your practice as you apply your roadmap and capture profit opportunities.

The abundance of data can be viewed as a burden or a blessing depending on your mastery of data manipulation. This session will demonstrate several models to create interactive, customized reports for your medical practice. It will begin with Excel Pivot Tables that sort, filter, group and chart data. Next, Nate will demonstrate how to connect those Excel reports to a SQL Server so that when the data changes, the reports and charts automatically update every time Excel is opened. Finally, there will be an introduction to SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) to schedule email alerts and create webpages that show just what you need to know, when you need to see it. With his hands-on workshops, participants can bring their laptops and follow along with the examples.

Learning Objectives

  • Differentiate three models for creating customized reports for medical practices.
  • Analyze Excel, SQL Server and SSRS custom reports.
  • Leverage applications for each reporting model in your practice environment.

I rarely see a book that I can legitimately call a ‘game changer’ but this is certainly one of them… Read it; treasure it.”

Mary Pat Whaley calls Nate, “one of the great gurus of data in the place where healthcare begins – in the physician practice.”

Take Action Where You Have The Most to Gain

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.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) specific to your medical practice.
  • Using comparative data, you can determine how you stack up to other medical practices and industry benchmarks.
  • 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.
