The Benefits of Visiting Practices And Why Partnerships Are Overrated Part Deux [Pediatric Practice Management Awesome Cast]

Chip and I have been traveling. We’ve also been extremely busy at each one of our jobs. So finding the time to schedule the AwesomeCast has been difficult. But we finally found some time to talk about a few things.

In this episode, you’ll hear about a recent trip I made to the East Coast where I visited several practices. The purpose of my trip was to observe and learn. I wanted to observe first hand how these practices functioned. Things like how many staff members they had and each person’s role, explore how practices used their EMR and PM systems to improve work flow, as well as how they’ve incorporated other services into the practice among other things.

I don’t answer these questions in the podcast, but rather discuss with Chip why I thought it was a good idea to make this trip and describe some of the immediate benefits as a result of my tour.

Chip was also curious to know about a blog post I wrote a while back titled: “7 Reasons Why Becoming a Partner at a Medical Practice is Overrated.” This post got a lot of attention when I posted it. I received a lot of feedback, both good and bad. I talk about my thoughts behind the post.
