- Focus on collections: Obtain deductible information prior to seeing the patient and collect up-front if your contract allows. If not, use a service like this.
- Scutinize all costs: Trim some and expand others--cost center vs profit center.
- Smarten up your office hours: Avoid overtime while maximizing office visits. Use your data to figure when patients "want" to be seen and staff heavily at these times, light at others.
- Leverage technology: EHR, smart phones, VOIP, webforms, sms, etc
- Answer your phones
