Hi, it's Tina and I'm here with your one minute management tip. You know, everyone wants to have a happy work environment and we want everyone who works in the practice to be happy. But happy employees don't always equal productive employees. What do I mean by that? Well, a lot of times people are very happy and they really enjoy being at work and interacting with people, but they're not really getting their work done.

This is where it's important to have protocols and systems in place so that you can make sure everything is being done, because that really makes everybody happy, especially the physician business owners. If you're part of the Virtual Practice Management Institute, get into the library. Go into the sections that talk about protocols and setting up systems for checks and balances so that everyone knows what they're responsible for. And that they turn that in on a weekly, monthly, daily basis so that they know that their manager or their physician knows

that they have completed their work. That really makes everyone happy. If you have any questions, you can email me at [email protected], or Dr. Peter Wishnie at [email protected]. Or if you're not part of the Virtual Practice Management Institute, just email me. I'd be happy to give you a tour of the library so that you can see all of the modules that are in there to help you run your practice productively and efficiently, which makes everyone really happy. You take care. Bye now.
