Managing a busy private practice brings as many challenges as it does rewards. Those who are willing to cope with changes and adapt to new mediums of care, technology, and more, are those that will preserve their valued autonomy and ability to realize long-term success. During this free one-hour webinar, Skills to Survive and Thrive in Private Practice, Debra Phairas, President of Practice & Liability Consultants, LLC, will address the top challenges physicians experience trying to remain independent and will discuss key considerations for transitioning to private practice from Hospital or Foundation employment.

  • Key Financial, A R and staffing ratios to maintain profitability
  • How to run a “lean operation” to maintain net income
  • The importance of marketing, internet presence, and online reviews
  • Opportunities that can be found by merging practices
  • Transitioning to private practice after hospital/foundation employment
  • How technology, telemedicine and ancillary services can keep the practice viable
  • And More!
The discussion will be followed by audience Q&A.
