Modern medicine—and the regulations and challenges that face it—is always changing. Doctors who succeed are ones who adapt their practices to meet these challenges. The big change that is coming now is a move from a fee-for-service model to “Value Based Medicine.” This shift is designed to move away from patients simply paying for a service or a product that may or may not work to investing in treatments and methods that really solve problems. In theory this will help people, but the change is going to set up many, many practices and medical professionals for more audits, more claim rejections, more cash-flow problems, and more fee reductions.
This sounds bleak, but there is a solution: technology, information, mentoring, and training to handle this change. This is where we introduce the Virtual Practice Management Institute (VPMI), a collaboration between Top Practices and Collaborative Practice Solutions.
Ok, So What On Earth Is VPMI?
This program combines the unique Virtual Practice Optimization (VPO) Report Card from Collaborative Practice Solutions with Top Practices’ own successful and growing Practice Management Institute. The VPO Report Card provides medical professionals with the data about their own practices that they so desperately need. It covers your unique strengths, weaknesses, and missed opportunities, as well as under and over-utilizations. What’s more, the report card compares your practice and how you are doing against 1500 of your podiatric collegues, showing you just where you stand.
Armed with this information and helpful interpretation from Collaborative Practice Solutions, you then get access to the Top Practices’ own Practice Management Institute to help you train and empower your staff. This includes our expansive library of resources, regular coaching and mentoring from expert management coach Tina Del Buono, a special monthly doctors’ program from Dr. Peter Wishnie, and much more.
Together with courses and available coaching from respected experts Dr. John Guiliana and Dr. Alan Bass of Collaborative Practice Solutions, the VPMI program offers you more to help you meet and surpass the upcoming challenges of Value Based Medicine than anything or anyone else.
This big shift in medical practice and reimbursement is coming whether you like it or not. This is not the time to put your head in the sand, or even to say, “Oh, I’ll get around to that later.” Don’t come to a gun fight armed with a butter knife. Now is the time to be proactive and get ready. Top Practices and Collaborative Practice Solutions are the only two companies who are really prepared to give you the data that you need, help you interpret that data, and then actually provide you with strategies to use that information to grow and succeed.
