Thursday, November 17, 2016

This ASGE course provides office management staff with the essentials needed to effectively and efficiently manage a GI unit. Presented by GI practice managers at the top of their field, GI Practice Management 101 provides GI endoscopy practice management best practices. Course sessions will cover topics such as running a profitable endoscopy unit, achieving efficiency in your office operations, and managing and staffing the GI practice. GI Practice Management 101 is designed to be highly interactive and provide winning practical solutions that can be implemented immediately in your practice. This course is perfect for those propelled into office management or new to GI practice operations.

"We will need to develop much more sophisticated tracking programs/workflows via the EMR system to track and correlate treatment plans with outcomes.  For example, can we stratify patients on PPIs to determine if they are at the correct dose i.e. can they be tapered down in dosage to create savings on the pharmacy benefit side.”
