Maintain a healthy practice: Give it a monthly check-up
A new AMA series shows physicians how to put their practices on track for a healthy year ahead.
The AMA's "Prescription for a healthier practice" series offers monthly checklists to help physicians and their staff examine how their practices are performing in key administrative processes.
The first checklist focuses on the claims revenue cycle and helps physicians evaluate their practice's ability to submit claims efficiently and accurately, analyze health insurer payments for accuracy, and address payment delays and denials. The checklist also recommends additional resources from the AMA Practice Management Center to address any areas that might need improvement.
Health care conference to explore new payment models
Learn about the evolution of value-based models for physician payment at the Pay for Performance Summit, Feb. 19–21 in San Francisco.
Co-sponsored by the AMA, the conference will examine innovative payment models that aim to lower health care costs and increase quality. National experts will discuss case studies and provide updates on the latest developments in payment reform.
The conference offers two options for participants: in-person attendance at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco or virtual attendance, which is available live and at any time up to six months after the conference.
