Problems We Solve
Would you like to spend more time focusing on patient care and less time on paperwork? By joining the ProPractice community, we can work together to give you a Practice Made Perfect. What problem can we help you solve?
Am I at risk for an OSHA fine?
For every dollar a practice invests in OSHA compliance with us, they prevent an average of $10 in OSHA fines. While physicians and their staff recognize that complying with these regulations are important to their employees’ safety, and therefore their patients, compliance can be a tedious and time constraining process. After conducting a walk-through assessment of your practice, we can craft a customized plan and train your staff. Unlike most firms, we proactively follow up with your practice to make sure your team continues following these standards.
Am I at risk for a HIPAA violation?
No practice wants to face the poor publicity or scrutiny from the Office for Civil Rights from a HIPAA breach. While the increasing utilization of technology in the medical field can improve efficiencies and aid in reporting requirements, it also requires the practice to follow more HIPAA Security Regulations. There’s oftentimes not an awareness of what requirements are in the HIPAA law and its regulations. We can provide an assessment of your practice, and then will customize a compliance plan and train your staff.
Human resources takes up too much time.
This can be the most challenging aspect of running a practice. Not only are there many regulations to follow to help prevent an employee from filing a claim, there are best practices that can help your practice run more smoothly. We find most practices don’t have basic job descriptions or other basic items that can help. We’ll help you determine ways to make sure you’re compliant with laws and regulations, and then help create mechanisms to assess your team and maintain accountability.
One area where we find practices struggling is with employee turnover – regularly as high as 30% each year! It also absorbs a huge amount of time, taking your practice managers and you away from your core purpose, treating patients. Soon, we’ll be offering a full service HR package to streamline your time sheets and payroll, as well as offer a competitive benefits package that will help you compete against larger systems. Email us if you’d like to know when we begin offering this service.
Does my staff know CPR?
Your patients assume your staff is trained in the event of an emergency. When we work with a practice we often find staff members don’t know how to perform CPR. Our CPR classes are taught by an in-house team of certified trainers. After completing our training course, your staff will be certified in this lifesaving measure.
Getting credentialed takes up too much time.
If you have hospital privileges, you know how much time the credentialing process takes. It’s an important process, and it can be incredibly cumbersome. Worse, it takes you and your team away from your main purpose – treating patients. Our team of specialists streamlines this process, and we can compile your information in 1/8 of the time it takes your staff. By specializing, we also improve the accuracy of your information so you can get credentialed faster.
