Michelle Schaefer (CPA) has 25+ years experience improving the timeliness and accuracy of the financial reporting for medical practice clients. Her ability to pull together many integrated services, including tax projections, business tax return preparations, sales tax, bookkeeping and payroll, is what makes her a valuable resource across many groups.
“I really enjoy untangling the raw data and creating clear reports for my clients,” says Michelle. “This helps them identify opportunities to improve their staff flow, increase efficiency and in general gives them more accurate financial information.” I also love the unique challenges of the healthcare industry, whether it’s contractual or tax issues like MNCare. My goal with each medical practice is to help them understand the complex industry compliance areas so they can make better informed decisions.”
Michelle provides ongoing guidance to medical practice management teams by understanding their business direction and helping them adapt to change in the healthcare industry. “A big part of my role is also to help streamline the compensation packages for physicians. I document what the practice intends to do and then create an accounting process to make sure they have reliable information.”
