    Hitting the Three Targets of a Top Medical Practice

    There are many issues beyond your control, but if you can improve your operational efficiency, increase your production capacity, and gain more clinical effectiveness, you will have a top performing medical practice. This presentation will give you the tools to address all three areas.

    The Year 2020 and Healthcare Risks

    The year 2020 has thus far been one for the record books with the COVID-19 pandemic.  COVID’s effect on healthcare has been something not seen in healthcare for 100 years.  One of the most obvious effects seen from the pandemic is the explosion of telemedicine.  Before COVID, we saw telemedicine struggle to reach its potential. When using telemedicine in medical practices it is recommended that good risk management practices be followed. 

    Also, another area where there has been a shift in healthcare is with patients skipping or delaying healthcare during the pandemic.  The overall long-term health consequences from this have yet to be determined and will likely be varied. Having sound tracking systems for patient screening visits and no-show visits is essential to decrease patient harm and minimize malpractice risks.

    Withdrawal of care has always been an area where good risk management practices are crucial. Even with the COVID pandemic, we need to make sure that the decision to terminate the patient-physician relationship is dissolved in the most appropriate manner for the situation at hand. Additionally, the risk considerations for minors’ consent to treat is always a topic that we get many questions about.
